CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A newspaper reports Wyoming energy companies flared enough natural gas through the first 10 months of 2014 to fuel the Cheyenne Prairie Generating Station for 130 days.

A review of state statistics by the Casper Star-Tribune (https://tinyurl.com/lvgwqhn) finds that statewide, 3.9 billion cubic feet of gas was burned off into the atmosphere through October.

That equates to roughly $11.4 million worth of natural gas at today’s spot prices, the newspaper reported.
