    Here is an excerpt from the state's web page given in source below…

    ====================
    EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION IN WASHINGTON

    Much of the Puget Lowland and Columbia River basin have some potential for natural gas production (Johnson and others, 1997; Lingley, 1995; Lingley and von der Dick, 1991; Lingley and Walsh, 1986; McFarland, 1983; Walsh and Lingley, 1996). Oil exploration is of relatively little importance in Washington because coastal areas north of Grayland are the only parts of the state with reasonable potential for oil discoveries (Palmer and Lingley, 1989; Snavely and Kvenvolden, 1989).

    About 600 gas and oil wells have been drilled in Washington, but large-scale commercial production has never occurred (McFarland, 1983). Small amounts of gas were produced from the Bellingham Gas Field east of Ferndale and the Rattlesnake Hills Gas Field north of Richland (McFarland, 1983). The most recent production, which was from the Ocean City Gas and Oil Field west of Hoquiam, ceased in 1962, and no oil or gas have been produced since that time.

    Additionally, Washington Senator Maria Cantwell is determined to protect coastal and waterway areas for fishing, tourism, and native culture preservation according to treaty. So it is not a good place for the O&G business to be exercising itself.
