Workers disassemble a natural gas drill rig that has been operating on the Cottonwood Ranches, between Daniel and Big Piney on US Highway 189. It takes an average of about six weeks to drill a typical well. Deep wells can take up to four months or longer.
Semi-trucks line Highway 189 waiting to haul away parts of a natural gas rig that has been drilling a well on the Cottonwood Ranches between Daniel and Big Piney. The drill rig will be reassembled at a new location.
