Nebraska and fracking
|This article is part of the FrackSwarm coverage of fracking.|
In July 2012 it was reported that gas exploration in Nebraska was booming. In southern Sioux County in northwest Nebraska, drilling rigs have entered the area in growing numbers. The area is just east of Wyoming’s Goshen County. There has been a spike of oil and gas leases in southern and central Sioux County over the past couple of years, said William Sydow, the director of the Nebraska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
As of July 2012 Fidelity Exploration and Production drilled one oil well in the far south end of the county, and said it has plans for developing two more wells before the end of 2012.
