“Boulder County motion granted by COGCC to indefinitely postpone hearing on 140-well Crestone project” The Daily Camera

By Sam Lounsberry, The Daily Camera 10/4/18

“A hearing on Crestone Peak Resources’ plans to drill 140 wells north of Erie was indefinitely postponed Thursday as a Boulder County lawsuit against the oil and gas company makes its way through the courts.”

“The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission — the state agency tasked with reviewing oil and gas drilling applications — granted the county’s motion to delay a hearing on Crestone’s plans to drill five multi-well pads on three sites along Colo. 52 north of Erie that would drain 10 square miles of hydrocarbons through horizontal drilling.”

“Boulder County’s lawsuit contends 10 of the mineral rights leases Crestone is using to propose drilling in the area are either expired or would be violated if they were included in the company’s drilling plans.”
