Drive to Pine Tree Junction — the intersection of state highways 50 and 387 in Campbell County – and you will find yourself in the middle of an oil boom.

State data confirms the boom. According to the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, oil from the Powder River Basin accounted for nearly a third of the state’s production, from the beginning of the year. In that time, Campbell County produced 5.5 million barrels, or 19.4 percent of the state’s oil production. Converse County produced 3.5 million barrels, or 12.3 percent of the state’s production.
