Just when all the local economic news is bad, we get this from the Tribune:
The Sinclair Refinery in Casper is undergoing one of its most significant overhauls since it opened in 1923, and hiring people by the hundreds in the process.
“We believe in operating the refinery in Casper long-term,” Ruble said. “With the crude units, and boilers, electrical, all that stuff - theoretically we should be good for 100 years.”
On the other hand, Alpha has laid off 37 miners and natural gas driller QEP reported a $863 million loss on Wednesday.
