No 2 Govt Tip Top Well

The #2 Gov't. Tip Top Well belonged to the Western Oil Refining Company. This well blew in while coring at 980 feet, making 60 million cu. ft. of gas a day on September 9, 1952. This is one photo that is a part of the Sublette County oil and gas history display at the Museum. Some of the mountain men here in the 1830s wrote comments in their diaries about oil seeps coming to the surface of the ground in the LaBarge area, south of Big Piney.
