Aerial view of the Jonah natural gas field, upper Green River valley, Wyoming, 2001

    Newer Older

    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).

      I hate you gas companies!! You're destroying the only planet we have to live on. You're not going to make any money if the people are dead because you are contaminating all the water supply and livestock with you're mixture of toxic chemicals. You are ignorant to think that the chemicals can not seep through broken rocks and sediment. Give the citizens our human rights back!!
