The ThinkProgress graphic lists Missouri (MO). Checking the original report, Missouri is not listed on the source table (Table 6. Methane Emissions from Wells Completed in 2014 page 25) or anywhere else in the report.
Montana is the State listed on Table 6 in the report that corresponds to the data represented in the graphic: methane emissions equivalent to approximately 80,000 cars.
