That was the message for Oil and Gas Supervisor Grant Black at a meeting of the legislature&rsquo;s Minerals Committee today.</p><p>Committee members criticized Black for not providing a concrete plan for plugging or repurposing the wells. There are currently 1,200 orphaned wells in the state, and that number is expected to double in the next year.</p> Fri, 27 Sep 2013 00:50:02 +0000 Stephanie Joyce 47550 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Legislators want to see faster progress on abandoned wells solution
