  • 4117 FREMONT Aug. 2, 2010 Operator: Old Operators - Status Unknown CHEMICAL HAZARD Description: Mr. Rix is concenrned that soils removed from around the well bore during plugging operations in June 2010 may need to be disposed of off site. Resolution: Sampling and analysis of the exacavated and stockpiled soils indicate that the criteri of Table 910-1 were met with exception of ag parameters EC and SAR. Mr. rix said he ahd utilized the soils to backfill an exacavatio on his property and that the soils were buried to a depth of 3 feet by clean fill.
  • 3866 FREMONT April 27, 2011 Operator: Pine Ridge Oil & Gas Llc NOISE Description: I received a complaint from Andy Wildhaber (720-934-6168) of Coal Creek regarding the noise at night from Comet Ridge's drilling operations. Apperently he lives several thousand feet from the location and the noise is quite loud at his residence. Resolution: I contacted Mr. Wlidhaber to verify exact locaion of complaint. He indicated that the rig had rigged down and left prior to his filing the complaint. the actual location is Pine Ridge Greenback 33-29 APiI #043-06198. Upon my arrival at that location on 4/28/2011 I found that the drilling rig was gone and a completion riig in place. Noise readings taken at 350' from the rig and in the direction of Mr. Wildhaber's home were within COGCC compliance levels (avg 68 dba). I also traveled to where thwe rig was currently working and took noise readings. Due to fencing reding were taken from 130' and dba levels averaged 75.6. i spoke with Mr. Wildhaber later that day and explained my findings. i explained that since there was no violation at that time no further action could be taken. He indicated he understood and said he would contact COGCC if there were any more issues.

  • 3569 FREMONT June 11, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator BASELINE WATER REQUEST Description: Mr. Jackman requested baseline sampling and analysis of his domestic water well prior to drilling of the Pathfinder oil and gas well. Resolution: Summary letter mailed to Mr. Jackman. Overall water chemistry is indicative of source in coals in the area. Gas composition and isotopic composition of methane indicate source of gas is not likely to be Pierre Shale from which most oil production in the area is from.
  • 3568 FREMONT June 11, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator BASELINE WATER REQUEST Description: Ms. Cox requested baseline sampling and analysis of water from her domestic well prior to drilling of the PathFinder well. Resolution: Groundwater from the Cox domestic water well is of sodium-bicarbonate major ion character. Water well records indicate the well penetrates several coal seams. Overall water chemistry is of similar nature to water produced from coals. The measured pH is outside the acceptable range listed in the groundwater standards. Concentrations of total dissolved solids and fluoride are greater than threshold in the groundwater standards. The measured concentration of dissolved methane present in the gorundwater poses a potential safety concern if water is brought directly into enclosed, unventilated spaces. Gas composition and methane isotopic ratio indicates source of methane is not the Pierre Shale formation from which oil is produced nearby.
  • 3567 FREMONT June 12, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator STORMWATER BMPs Description: Complaintant indicated stormwater BMP's were not being used or were installed incorrectly Resolution: Reviewed entire locatio with construction Supervisor to address problems with current BMP's and need for more due to terrain.

  • 2588 FREMONT Sept. 27, 2015 Operator: Incremental Oil & Gas (Florence) Llc ROADS Description: Our road is used by the oil companies that are leasing and own properties located on Kelsey Court. And this under developed road has been destroyed by Semi trucks and other vehicles owned by the oil companies that drive on it during unsafe conditions. In doing so have created this road not accessible for emergency vehicles. As well has I have to wonder if they are appropriate conditions for these trucks carrying possible toxic substances. They are at risk of spilling and or other situations putting us land owners at more risk. Please help us. I contacted my local government designee, We in Fremont county do not have land use regulations. I believe it is the states that we use. Resolution: On (10/14/15) at 3:00 pm I arrived at the Fremont Administration Building in Canyon City. I met with Ms. Susan in the Clerk and Recorder's Office and got a copy of the Plat for Kelsey Court (aka: Two Creeks). Then I met with Justin in the Assessor's Office. He then pointed out that the Developers of the Two Creeks Subdivision have responsibility for maintenance until they release this right. Then it falls to the adjacent property owners of the easement of the Two Creeks road. I left Administration Building at 4:05 pm. This road is a private road, not a lease road. At 5:30 pm I met with Mr. and Mrs. Vendetti. I told them I had looked at the road on (10/02/15) and tried to go to the Clerk and Recorder's Office, but it was closed on Fridays. I told them I had gone there today and also the Assessor's Office. I gave them a copy of the Plat for the Two Creeks (aka: Kelsey Court) Subdivision and the information I had gotten at the Assessor's Office. They thanked me for the information and I left their home at 7:30 pm.
  • 2575 FREMONT Oct. 9, 2015 Operator: Incremental Oil & Gas (Florence) Llc ROADS Description: Complainant reports: The road is located just outside of Florence CO, the name of road is Kelsey Court. We have 2 oil fields down this road and we have semi trucks that travel at least 2 times a week to collect their product. When I first bought my property 4 yrs. ago I was told that the oil company will maintain the road because they use it. Not only do the semi trucks come down the road but there is the guy who checks and maintains the pumps that travels down the road also. He comes at least 2 times a day. They come no matter what the condition of the road is, when it rains the road is nothing but a big mud pit. There is not gravel on the road due to the traffic, and we not have ruts and huge craters in the road, but yet their turn off and around their oil pumps their is gravel and a road grader comes and maintains it, but yet it drives down the main road and does not drop it's blade to help improve the road they use to get to their oil fields. Because of the road being in such poor shape we have had 2 instances where we had to call for a ambulance and it took them 45 min. to get down our road, which is maybe a 1/4 of a mile long. My son could run faster along side the ambulance than it could drive. We pay for emergency services in our taxes and we can't even get emergency help quickly when needed. This is not right. Please help! One of the neighbors did ask the guy who maintains the pumps about maintaining the road and he said since we have been dragging a form of drag behind out vehicles, to try to level out the road, that it voids out them doing any maintenance to the road. Complainant has not contacted Incremental Oil and gas yet. Resolution: On (10/14/15) at 3:00 pm I arrived at the Fremont Administration Building in Canyon City. I met with Ms. Susan in the Clerk and Recorder's Office and got a copy of the Plat for Kelsey Court (aka : Two Creeks). Then I met with Justin in the Assessor's Office. He then pointed out that the Developers of the Two Creeks Subdivision have the responsibility for maintenance until they release this right. Then it falls to the adjacent property owners of the easement of the Two Creeks road. I left the Administration Building at 4:05 pm. This road is a private road, not a lease road. I called Mrs. Meitl on (10/19/15) at 3:40 pm. I told Mrs. Meitl I could meet with her and give her a copy of the Plat for the Two Creeks Subdivision. She told me that was not necessary. She told me she met with Mrs. Vendetti (First Complaintent) and some of the other people in the Two Creeks Subdivision on (10/18/15). She said they discussed the information, that I had provided to the Vendettis. I told her I would get her a copy of the Plat, when I was in the area. She thanked me for the research and the phone conversation ended at 4:45 pm.

  • 3521 FREMONT Aug. 3, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator ODOR Description: Mr. Jackmann called Field Inspector Leonard at 9:05 pm on 7/31/2012. He said that the odors coming form the wellpad were so strong he had to close the windows in his home Resolution: No odors were detected, see COGCC Doument # 668200046. Rig was idle at time of inspection.
  • 3517 FREMONT July 31, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator BASELINE WATER REQUEST Description: Vicky Bappe requested baseline sampling and analysis of groundwater from their domestic water well related to drilling and completion of the Pathfinder oil and gas well. Resolution: The measured pH of the groundwater and the concentration of total dissolved solids exceed CDPHE WQCC groundwater ranges or thresholds. The concentration of all other tested parameters was less than groundwater threshold concentrations. The concentration of dissolved methane present in the groundwater is of safety concern if the water and methane are brought into small enclosed, unventilated spaces.
  • 3516 FREMONT Aug. 13, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator ODOR Description: Mr. Jackman called at 12:02 pm on 8/11/2012 stating that there is a strong odor coming from the location.

  • 2341 FREMONT April 18, 2016 Operator: Cinnamon Creek Oil & Gas Inc AESTHETICS Description: Oil derrick has no barrier or fence which keeps people out and the rig secured for operator use only. Operator states there was a fence but "they" took it down. Previous owner who still owns that piece of lot states there was never a fence since early 1970 when she signed lease. Operator exercises no weed control or maintenance of area. Storage tanks are located fairly close to neighbors house. Do not know ordinances about this. Electrical line is exposed from power meter pole box to point at which it enters ground and is above ground and exposed at pump. Operator states the line is buried between tanks and pump and lies on top of flow pipe. It appears to be very shallow. I have concerns about electrical safety and power line being directly over pipe. Shouldn't it be covered with conduit from point A to point B? The operator is hostile and aggressive when questioned and continually accuses people working on trees or irrigation system of violating his property. Derrick and storage containers at far NW corner of property with access road off of Elm St. One derrick and two storage tanks clearly visible in field Residence is 1511 Locust St. at corner of Elm and Locust. Resolution: On (05/06/16) at 4:00pm, I arrive at Alger # 1 and do field inspection. I note that there are no weeds and no fence around pumpjack. I don't see any exposed wiring. I leave well site at 4:15pm. On (05/17/16) at 3:34pm, I call Rick Mills(Cinnamon Creek Oil & Gas Inc.). I let him know about the complaint on the Alger #1 well. He informs me that he spoke with Dru Meloche and told her that he would put a fence around pumpjack and have electrician look at the wiring and address any housekeeping issues. He informed me that she was satisfied with what he was going to do. I told Mr. Mills to let me know when the work had been done and I would reinspect the well. End phone conversation at 3:50pm.
  • 1666 WELD May 11, 2017 Operator: Invalid Operator ONSITE INSPECTION REQUEST Description: I was contacted the other day by a resident living near the area of the Harwood Funeral Home crematory, located at 225 E. Main Street, Florence, CO 81226. The caller's complaint was that the crematory was smoking, so I informed her to contact the EPA. I now have a completely different question. The crematory that is being operated there has had little to no maintenance that I am aware of for a number of years. This crematory is also sitting on-- and run by-- a natural gas well. The piping for that gas line seems to be uncovered, rusty and appears to be running along the side of a ditch. This property was just sold to its new owner, Lloyd Harwood. From what I understand, the previous owners of the property installed the crematory without prior approval through city government and possibly state government, as well. I was under the impression that when a property with a crematory changes ownership, the crematory would need to be changed into the new owner's name. When I contacted your office, I was told that the crematory was still under the names of the previous owners, one of whom is now deceased and the other has just been convicted of murder. With this crematory sitting on a natural gas well in the middle of downtown Florence, Colorado-- a residential area-- I respectfully request that this facility be inspected for the safety of the residents and the community.

  • 1301 Aug. 10, 2017 Operator: Invalid Operator OTHER Description: CRESTONE PEAKS PROPOSED CDP AREA. We are now three months into the nine month period during which the various oil and gas operators agreed to develop a comprehensive drilling plan for the Crestone Peak application lands. My concern is that decisions about oil and gas locations will be made 1) without effective participation in those decisions by either the county or members of the public and 2) without landowners and/or the county understanding their rights under both property law and the COGCC Rules. Do you have a SPECIFIC map showing where the proposed horizontal wells would be located pursuant to Crestone's proposal? I don't think it would be very hard for the COGCC to come up with the map I am suggesting and publish it or make it available so everybody can see it. THE PEOPLE WANT AND DESERVE ANSWERS TO THEIR QUESTIONS! NOW, NOT AFTER DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE!! Resolution: Complainant was provided a link to the COGCC website relating to the Crestone Peak Comprehensive Drilling Plan (CDP) in Boulder County with the requested information.

  • 2309 May 6, 2016 Operator: Invalid Operator NOTIFICATION Description: Extraction Inc. in its application for a drilling location permit at the Triple Creek location did not properly complete the location application because they failed to identify that the location fell within an Urban Mitigation Area (UMA). Because of this proper public notice was not given to local residents. Initial information given to the local residents indicated that Extraction was going to use pipelines which would allow its production facilities to be located offsite. Later residents were informed that there would be 22 tanks, separators etc. in the middle of their neighborhood. A facility this large (A Large UMA Facility) is too large for this area. Not only is this a residential area there are at least 4 schools, a nursing home, shopping center, wild life habitat concerns and 2 emergency facilities in the immediate area. We don't feel that Extraction Inc. complied with the regulations in its application to the COGCC nor does a LARGE UMA FACILITY belong in the Triple Creek location Resolution: The COGCC engaged with Extraction and the local government regarding the Oil and Gas Location Assessment (OGLA) permit for the location. COGCC found there was an error made by the original permittee on the OGLA, but did not find that any violation of COGCC Rules occurred at this Location, and no enforcement action will be taken. In order to remedy the inconsistencies between the State permits and Local USR, the operator committed to submitting a Form 2A to amend the permitted location and bring it into compliance with the Large UMA Facility Rules adopted by the COGCC in January 2016. The Form 2A application will be subject to the notice provisions of Rules 305A and 305, the consultation provisions of Rules 305A and 306, the mitigation measures described by Rule 604, and public comment as described in Rule 305. COGCC Oil and Gas Location Assessment Specialists will review the application for compliance with all applicable COGCC Rules and review all proposed operating practices to ensure that the project can be developed in a manner consistent with our statutory obligation to “foster the responsible, balanced development, production, and utilization of the natural resources of oil and gas in the state of Colorado in a manner consistent with protection of public health, safety, and welfare, including protection of the environment and wildlife resources.” (C.R.S. § 34-60-102) Following COGCC’s technical review of the application and the proposed Best Management Practice (BMPs), the Director may attach technically feasible and economically practicable conditions of approval to the Form 2A in response to legitimate public health, safety, or welfare concerns expressed during the comment period, as provided for in Rule 305.
