Gov. Mead Headed to the Middle East

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead says he'll be in the Middle East for a weeklong trip to meet with energy industry officials about research that's going on at the University of Wyoming.

Mead left Saturday, but declined to say exactly where he's going because of security concerns. Mead says he'll be able to release more details on his trip when he returns later next week.

Mead says UW has been doing research that could have application to hydraulic fracturing - the practice of pumping water, sand and chemicals underground to open oil and gas deposits.

Mead says he and UW officials plan to meet with energy company representatives on the trip and hope that they will provide support for the UW research.
