Gas Well Blows Out In Fremont County

Laramie, WY – Crews were still working this morning to control a natural gas well that blew out over the weekend in Fremont County. The gas has not ignited, and there were no injuries reported. However, the federal Bureau of Land Management says it might be some time before they can assess the damage and work with developer Noble Energy on a reclamation plan. The well blew out sometime either late Saturday night or early Sunday morning north of Moneta. It was emitting both gas and water, and the water was freezing over the rig.
