Riverton, Wyoming (and area)

Current operations

We operate our Wind River assets from our office in Riverton, Wyoming. The Wind River Basin is located in central Wyoming in Fremont and Natrona counties, and has been producing oil and natural gas since the late 1800’s. The first commercial production of oil in Wyoming came from this basin.

Our commitment to the community

Through our community investment program we donated over $1.19 million in 2011 to non-profit groups throughout Wyoming - including more than $198,900 to Fremont County organizations. Our company remains focused on its commitment to build invaluable relationships, help strengthen communities, and support local businesses in the areas in which we live and operate.

Giving back to the people and towns we are a part of enables us to work more closely with area organizations to solve local issues and achieve goals with maximum impact. In 2011, we supported 44 requests to establish proactive partnerships in Fremont County that championed a variety of community initiatives, such as:

  • compressed natural gas vehicle conversion for Central Wyoming College
  • Wind River Country, Habitat for Humanity Riverton Neighborhood project
  • new recycling trailer for Lander Valley High School's Interact Club recycling project
  • Raising Readers in Wyoming to purchase high quality children's books
  • new playground equipment for the Town of Shoshoni's Centennial Park
  • First Stop Help Center's project for assistance in transition from homelessness
