Gordon responds to legal win in oil and gas leasing lawsuit

CHEYENNE (WNE) — Gov. Mark Gordon is celebrating a legal victory for the state of Wyoming in a 2022 lawsuit by environmental groups that challenged the Converse County Oil and Gas Project.

Judge Tanya S. Chutkan with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied a request for a preliminary injunction to stop the project and dismissed five of six claims brought by the plaintiffs.

“Judge Chutkan’s decision is a major win for Wyoming,” Gordon said in a news release. “As I stated when this lawsuit was filed, the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was a result of a years-long cooperative process that included federal agencies, state and local government, industry and private landowners. All worked together to develop a plan that allowed energy development while protecting our state’s wildlife and natural resources.”

“I have diligently defended Wyoming’s oil and gas industry from attempts to shut down federally approved projects, and I appreciate the ongoing work of our Attorney General’s office to protect Wyoming’s energy industry from dubious legal claims,” Gordon added.
