WOGCC’s Natural Resources Program Supervisor Joe Scott recently spoke to a group of about 25 county assessors from across the state of Wyoming.  The assessors were in Casper for their annual winter meeting.  Scott was asked to present on the WOGCC website and covered many topics such as confidential wells, how to research a well’s status, how to track new wells, and how to know when a well has been shut in.  He provided information on when a well is considered “spud” and “orphaned,” and made the group aware of the WellFinder application that is now available through the WOGCC and can be used to search for wells on most mobile phones. Head of the program, Laramie County Assessor Kenneth Guile was appreciative of the presentation noting that this information will help the assessors better fulfill their roles via discovery of wells and changes in the activity of wells.
