The High Plains Economic Development District, which coordinates economic development in southeast Wyoming, has been hosting Southeast Wyoming Oil Seminars in Cheyenne, Torrington and Wheatland. Oil exploration has begun in southeast Wyoming, northern Colorado, and western Nebraska with companies examining the viability of extracting oil from the Niobrara shale formation. The goal of the seminars was to provide information to policymakers and the general public about what is happening, what industry needs and challenges are, and what communities can anticipate might happen if exploration continues. The sponors of the seminars were the Goshen County Economic Development, Noble Energy, and Platte, Laramie, and Goshen counties, in partnership with Cheyenne LEADS, Platte County Economic Development, and Building the Wyoming We Want: The High Plains Initiative.
