Workover Rig Across from the Livingston Pad

Many residents questioned why there was a second smaller rig across from the Livingston Pad this past weekend. This morning, the City and County of Broomfield posted an announcement. It states that Extraction is plugging and abandoning Livingston 43-7 well for the next one to two weeks during daylight hours.

The announcement also states, “This equipment could include an enclosed flare in order to eliminate any gas prior to entering the wellbore. All plugging and abandonment activities will be limited to the well pad, tank battery or lease roads.”


You can read the entire announcement here.  The location is shown on the map to the right.
