CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission has named Mark Watson as permanent commission supervisor.

Watson has been interim head of the agency since the end of March.

Gov. Matt Mead and the other four members of the commission voted to make Watson’s position permanent.

Mead says that Watson has 30 years on the commission staff and demonstrated his leadership serving as interim supervisor. Watson has a degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Wyoming.

The commission met Tuesday in Casper for its monthly hearing. It also voted to establish a new deputy supervisor position.
