PINEDALE, WY - Gas well drilling rigs drill twenty four hours a day for the energy company Questar on the Pinedale Anticline, or Mesa, above the towns of Boulder and Pinedale, Wy. on August 5, 2005. Pinedale is a town of 1400 residents and is the governing seat of Sublette County whose residents number 6400. Pinedale currently has the lowest unemployment rate in the state and is experiencing another boom cycle both in real estate and in energy as natural gas production in two nearby gas fields ramps up for year-round production. Questar was recently approved for winter drilling in their environmentally sensitive lease holdings which are key winter forage ground for wild game animals.
