DENVER—With so many components of the Wyoming energy sector looking up, Paul Ulrich of Jonah Energy couldn’t help but wonder why the rig count was not one of them.

So Ulrich, Jonah’s vice president for government and regulatory affairs, shifted into his other role, that of chairman of the Wyoming Energy Authority, to find out.

The problem isn’t price.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am about that since they’re the highest prices I’ve seen since we formed Jonah Energy in 2014,” Ulrich said June 29 at Hart Energy’s DUG Bakken and Rockies Conference and Exhibition. “Oil prices are up. The energy economy is good. Very friendly regulatory and legislative framework built in Wyoming.”
