State, national and international media frequently feature the University of Wyoming and members of its community in stories. Here is a summary of some of the recent coverage:
Bloomberg Law quoted UW College of Law Associate Dean Sam Kalen for an article that focused on the oil and gas industry bracing for the possibility of the Biden administration missing a promised deadline to announce an upcoming oil and gas lease sale. One option may be litigation.
OilPrice.com reported that oil production in Wyoming, North Dakota and Colorado may not return to the pre-pandemic peaks, but it is definitely on the rise as high oil prices make drilling and project economics great again. UW economist Rob Godby was quoted in the article. Investing.com published the same article.
UW researchers found that a single genetic mutation linked to slower chronic wasting disease (CWD) progression has become more common over time, Bowhunter reported. The study indicates that deer with the “slow” mutation were less likely to test positive for CWD.
