New regulations to be implemented in Wyoming by mid-month will give the public more access information about the chemicals used in drilling operations by the natural gas and oil industry. The Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (WOGCC) does not plan to compile and present the information to the public, but the information would be available on the website, officials said. Under the new regulations, operators would have to disclose information that would be listed on a well-by-well basis. The disclosures would allow the public to know “exactly” what an operator has pumped into a well if it is hydraulically fractured and would know what the discharges are composed of once well stimulations are completed, said Commission Supervisor Tom Doll.
