New Mexico Joins Western States and Tribal Nations Natural Gas Initiative


BUSINESS WIRE (Nov. 19, 2019) -The State of New Mexico today became the newest member of Western States and Tribal Nations (WSTN) natural gas initiative, adding a strong advocate for the power of responsible, environmentally sound energy production to boost rural economies.

New Mexico’s joining creates the potential for other export avenues for the San Juan and Permian basins, especially after the State of Baja California, Mexico, became part of WSTN in August. Already, WSTN is pursuing export options for the Piceance and Uinta basins in Colorado and Utah, and Wyoming’s Green River basin.
