Extra notes: Think old wild west and cowboys of Wyoming as far as theme, but not too hokey. Still needs to be professional.

We drill and operate natural gas wells in Wyoming. We need a modern and professional logo with a western twist. Dark blue base of flame getting light towards the tip. The gas is from coal seams, so dark gray is a good color. We have pipelines, mountains...

Several of these look good, but all of them are still too simple and a little lacking on fonts. More artistic detail would be great.

Thanks for everyone working on this. We'd really like to see something completely different than these submitted. Anyone have any other ideas since many of these are very similar?

The flame in #17 looks good. Many of the blue colors are still very feminine, even though our slider is all the way masculine on the form. Some of the fonts are hard to read. We'll sort these very soon and review the new submissions. Thanks

Bikin...it's very hard to read your font, especially the smaller words.

We like the flame on Entry #20, but don't like the large MTG. Please make "MTG Operating Company" all the same color.

Like the layout and flame of #43, but the typestyle of #53.

We like "MTG Operating" to look like one statement and not have emphasis on just the initials. Also, all in black. A flame that has graduating colors and doesn't look like a raindrop (google natural gas flame) is what we're looking for. Maybe even having it sitting on a map compass, similar to where #43 is heading.

Thanks.
