Wyoming Having Trouble Finding Oil And Gas Chief

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming is having trouble finding people qualified to become the state’s next oil and gas supervisor.

Interim oil and gas supervisor Bob King told the Wyoming Oil and Gas Commission on Tuesday that 25 people have applied for the job but only six or seven fit the state’s qualifications.

The Associated Press  reported that candidates must be professional geologists or engineers who are licensed or registered in Wyoming.

King said some applicants had the right training but didn’t have licenses or certifications in Wyoming although they were willing to get them.

He said they shouldn’t be ruled out yet.

The commission won’t take any action until mid-September. Commissioner Ryan Lance said that will give Gov. Matt Mead time to weigh in on who should advance to the next round.
