Berlin Energy Study — the Green Party

Why should Wyoming care about Germany’s energy policies? Because Wyoming’s energy resources are tied to international markets and policies. Powder River Basin coal is making its way to China (perhaps just as much a function of U.S. non-energy policy as international demand). A Russian controlled company has controlling interest in a company that owns vast uranium interests in Wyoming, including an operational mine in Campbell County.

Companies active in Wyoming, like ExxonMobil, are active throughout the world. ExxonMobil, which owns and operates the Shute Creek natural gas processing plant in Wyoming, is even making moves for shale gas in western Germany.
