Interim Oil and Gas Supervisor Appointed

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead, after consulting with other members of the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, appointed Bob King to serve as the Interim State Oil and Gas Supervisor. King, who previously assisted as the Interim Supervisor in 2008 and 2009, will start on June 25, 2012.

“I, and others on the Commission, thank Bob for stepping up and helping,” Governor Mead said. “The Oil and Gas Commission has a critical role and Bob’s experience will provide necessary leadership as we begin the search for a permanent Supervisor.” State law says the Supervisor must be a petroleum engineer or a petroleum geologist.

King is currently an independent petroleum engineer and consultant. He has worked in Wyoming’s oil and gas industry for more than 30 years.

“I am glad I can step forward and lend a hand. There are great people at the Oil and Gas Commission and I look forward to engaging with them again,” King said.
