Environmental Groups Oppose Winter Drilling

Pinedale, Wy – Several environmental groups have filed an appeal with the U-S department of the interior asking that it halt additional winter-time drilling on the pinedale anticline. The Bureau of land management granted energy company Questar permission to add new wells and complete wells during the upcoming winter....activities environmental groups say could affect big game migration and habitat. Wyoming Outdoor Council's Bruce Pendery says the groups haven't opposed winter drilling before but the additional wells go too far.
