In order to file a protest to an application that has been filed at the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, there are three factors to consider:

- The Wyoming Conservation Act states that the protestant must show that they are entitled to notice or relief and that they are seeking a remedy that is within the jurisdiction and authority of the Commission.  

- A valid protest must include a filing fee to initiate commencement of a hearing.

- The protestant must be present at the assigned hearing to provide testimony and/or evidence to support their claim.  

Please read the WOGCC document that outlines the protest process in greater detail.  This will help determine your ability to file a protest. You can find the WOGCC document entitled Criteria For Filing A Protest under the Hearings tab on the agency's home page or by clicking here.
