Interactive Map: Where Are Wyoming’s Abandoned Wells?

Print More

Is there an abandoned well in your neighborhood? This map shows the public database of abandoned well locations, downloaded from the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. You can enter an address to search for wells near that location. But keep in mind: Abandoned wells are often difficult to spot once they’ve been plugged and the land has been reclaimed, and studies in Wyoming have shown that well locations in the database can be inaccurate.
