Meet Joe Scott – WOGCC’s Natural Resources Program Supervisor! 

Joe Scott was born in Alaska and later moved with his family to Casper during his teen years. He started playing hockey as a young boy and continued the sport through his college years.

Joe went on to attend Harvard and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelors in Environmental Science and Public Policy. Over the next 10 years, Joe used his schooling to do environmental consulting for a wide range of areas that included regulatory compliance, permitting, remediation work and biological surveys.  In 2015, he brought that depth of knowledge and experience to the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission to become the agency’s Natural Resources Program Supervisor.  In this position, Joe manages the idle well bonding and well transfers, compliance, sage grouse, remediation projects and is heavily involved in the state’s UIC program

When not working, Joe stays very active with his passion for the outdoors.  Up until 2015, Joe guided fly fishing on the North Platte for 14 years including many Two Fly tournaments. He loves camping with his wife and four children and readily admits he has a real serious fishing problem that is only outdone with his real serious hunting problem.  As Joe puts it, “If they give me a tag, I will shoot it.”  And in case he gets bored with all of that, he can also fly hot air balloons!
