The wells would be drilled throughout an area of 220 square miles.

According to the Casper Star Tribune, the project could create up to 1,000 jobs and $17 billion in revenue.

The project is being met with some negative reaction, however.

One group, vocally speaking out against the project is WildEarth Guardians.

Representatives for WildEarth has created a petition suggesting that the project would violation air pollution laws. The petition has been submitted to the U.S. Interior Department.
