Encana Denies It's Planning To Drill Near Pavillion

Laramie, WY – Encana Oil and Gas says there's no truth to the rumor that the company plans to drill 500 gas wells near Pavillion, Wyoming. Area activist Deb Thomas alleged that the company is planning the development nearby. But Encana spokesman Randy Teeuwen says that's not true.

"The Pavillion field is a mature gas field, and Encana has not drilled any wells in the Pavillion field in 2007 and we have no plans to drill in that field in 2008," he said.

Teeuwen says future drilling in Pavillion would be limited, if at all. He emphasized that Encana currently has no drilling plans in the works for Pavillion.
