Aerial view of the Jonah natural gas field, upper Green River valley, Wyoming, 2001
This aerial photograph shows the vast network of roads and well pads that make up a portion of the Jonah natural gas field, located in Wyoming's Upper Green River basin, 35 miles south of the town of Pinedale. This recently drilled gas field is NOT coal bed methane, but shows similar high density drilling (in this case it's for gas in a "tight sands" reservoir).
