Feds approve 3,500-well gas project in western Wyoming

With a nod from federal regulators Tuesday, Jonah Energy’s 3,500-well natural gas project in Sublette County took a leap forward.

The ambitious scope of the Normally Pressured Lance natural gas project is expected to serve as an long-term economic boon while creating new conservation challenges in western Wyoming.

The project is one of the largest to be approved on public land in Wyoming and could contribute up to $17 billion in revenue over its 40-year lifespan, according to Bureau of Land Management estimates. In federal royalties alone, NPL is projected to bring in $2.2 billion, half of which would go to the state. Development could spur the creation of nearly 1,000 jobs, while up to 7 trillion cubic feet of gas could be tapped over the next four decades.
