True Oil

True Oil is once again looking to drill exploratory wells in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The company first proposed drilling the wells in 2012, but never moved forward with the plan.

The wells are proposed for roughly 22 miles northwest of Big Piney. One of them would be on an existing well pad, the other would be on a previously reclaimed well pad.

Residents of Fort Laramie say they’re concerned about pollution, noise, and safety issues associated with a proposed oil loading terminal.

The facility, which would be built on the northwest end of town, would take oil from pipelines and transfer it to rail cars, to be transported to the east and west coasts.
