Energy Rebound Program

On Tuesday, November 10, 2020 Governor Mark Gordon announced the Energy Rebound Program. The State will direct $15 million of CARES Act funding for oil and natural gas projects in Wyoming. Details are still being finalized. However, we do know that operators will be eligible for up to $500,000 for:

1. Completing drilled but previously uncompleted wells,

2. Re-fracking wells, and/or

3. Plugging and abandoning idle wells


1. Applications will be done via fillable PDF that will be emailed to the Wyoming Business Council at

2. Information about the program can be found at

3. Applications will be accepted between 10 am on Wednesday the 18th and 10 am on Monday the 23rd. Applications will not be accepted outside that window

4. Awards are contingent upon the ability to expend stipend amounts prior to December 30, 2020. Project work may extend beyond December 30, and invoices for work completed before December 30 can be submitted until January 31, 2021. This is important, if you cannot spend the stipend prior to December 30, 2020, then you will not be eligible for the program.


The Wyoming Business Council will hold two informational webinars for applicants. You may register for either session below
