- 3716 WELD Nov. 3, 2010 Operator: Invalid Operator OTHER Description: Caller inquiring as to source of black smoke from drill site located east of Fredrick. Resolution: Curtis left me 2 voice messages in regards to the November 3, 2011 incident resulting in black smoke observed east to the Town of Fredrick. The location is the Strear V03-73HN (API 05-123-33567) located in the SESE of Section 3, Township 2 North, Range 67 West. The site is just north of WCR 24 within about 1.5 miles to the east of the main Fredrick City limits. Noble is in the final process of completing the well and crews performing the flow-back had parked a trailer adjacent to the flare line. The flowback experienced a slug of condensate that extinguished the flare and discharged some of the fluid onto the adjacent trailer tire(s) which caught fire and was responsible for the black smoke observed at the location. The fire was promptly extinguished and, as best Curtis knew, did not involve any City of County emergency response, but was handled at the site by the site personnel. No injuries and minor equipment damage (trailer tire(s)). The site personnel have sbben instructed to properly position equipment away from any flareline for future site operations to avoid a repeat. Form 22 (Accident Report filed).

- 2700 WELD June 1, 2015 Operator: Invalid Operator NOISE Description: NOISE: Triton Water Resources, located just north of our property has had a generator or pump of some sort running 24 hours a day for several weeks. We are unable to spend time outside of our home, or have the windows open. It sounds as if a bus is running in our driveway ALL THE TIME. We called Triton Water Resources directly and they said they would try to make the noise more managable, but the project was not long term, so it should only be bothering us for an additional 90-120 days. After 10 days no attempt has been made to alleviate the situation.

- 2701 WELD May 22, 2015 Operator: Invalid Operator OTHER Description: This well was drilled as a salt water disposal well last Summer, but Select Energy has yet to provide proper documentation of completion by submitting a Form 5, and by filing copies of relevant wire-line logs, including a CBL. As far as the records of the COGCC show, the well could be open from below whatever surface casing may have been installed, to TD, listed as 10,100 ft. According to recent correspondence from Bob Koehler of your office, the permit has recently been pulled for this well. The failure of Select Energy to properly complete this facility has put the interests of petroleum lease holders in the area at risk by exposing petroleum reservoirs, non-producing intervals, and possibly shallow aquifers, to contamination by the native formation water or petroleum resources from the Cretaceous section, including the Niobrara formation. In addition, I believe that there is the potential of contamination from injected oil field wastes from the neighboring injection well operated by Expedition Water Solutions, EWS no. 1 (API 05-123-39770). Both of these situations would be bad news for the petroleum industry and SWD projects in the area, as well as and in the basin as a whole. Given the sensitive nature of this situation, and the rather small community of petroleum producers and salt water disposal companies in the Denver basin, I would prefer to remain anonymous. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Resolution: Select Energy filed a Form 5 (Doc# 400839966) on May 27, 2015 and a Form 5A (doc#400844894) on May 28, 2015. These documents are currently being by COGCC staff. Select Energy will be required to submit a new UIC Application consisting of Forms 31, 33, and 26. Based on the proximity to basement of the bottomhole and to the EWS #1 well there would be restrictions on pressures and volumes if UIC application is approved.
- 3829 WELD June 7, 2011 Operator: Invalid Operator WATER WELL Description: Landowner would like to have COGCC resample his water well. Well still has sulfur ordor Resolution: Sample results show no impacts from O&G activity. Biogenic methane gas present and water well positive for nusiance bacteria (IRB and SRB).

- 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.
- 3269 ADAMS July 26, 2013 Operator: Invalid Operator BASELINE WATER REQUEST Description: Baseline water well sample. Resolution: No oil and gas impactes observed. Letter and analytical results sent to water well owner.

- 2618 Aug. 25, 2015 Operator: Invalid Operator SOIL CONTAMINATION Description: LaSalle disposal off CR 49 and CR 34 by Select Energy Services ,is allowing runoff from truck washing to get on dirt. The trench fills up and over flows and they just let is soak in. They put a new concrete slab down to "contain" it but they never fixed the problem. The ground around and under d the truck wash is contaminated Resolution: The site is under regulatory jurisdiction of both the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Weld County. Because the company is not an oil and gas operator, they are not under the regulatory jurisdiction of the COGCC. This complaint has been referred to CDPHE and Weld County./
- 2638 436154 Feb. 17, 2015 Operator: Invalid Operator Description: NOISE Resolution: I live just southwest of the site. 100 yds. away Noise is coming from huge fan on outside of housing for equipment inside.

- 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 âfoster 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.â (C.R.S. Â§ 34-60-102) Following COGCCâs 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.

- 3718 Jan. 5, 2012 Operator: Invalid Operator SPILLS Description: Complaint relayed by CDPHE Case#2012-0012; complainant reported CDPHE that he regularly witnesses "Fracking trucks" dumping "remains" in a ditch along the frontage road, on the South side of I-70 midway between Silt and Rifle. He stated that this has gone on for months, it occurs 24 hours a day and most occurs within the same 50 yard stretch. He is concerned that waste will drain to waterway. Resolution: I, Soraya Baroumand, and Bill West, District 45 Water Commissioner, met with Alina Vazquez of the EPA Criminal Investigation Division, at the locations previously reported as areas of alleged illegal dumping along an irrigation ditch; namely, a large dirt parking area adjacent south of the I-70/Garfield County Airport eastbound exit ramp, and at turnout areas on the frontage road, west of Mamm Creek Road alongside theâLast Chance Ditchâ. During our field visit of March 6, 2012, diversion of irrigation water via pumping and hauling was observed, (as I previously observed and January and February 2012). Screens and hoses appeared clean and no leaks from the bobtail trucks and associated equipment were observed. Furthermore, bobtail units observed were designated for freshwater hauling only. Also, no surficial staining or discharge at the ditch access turnouts was observed. The surface water diversion is known as the Alternate Points of Diversion for the Last Chance Ditch per court decree 05CW52 of the District Court in Water Division 5. The Last Chance Ditch is administered by the district 45 Water Commissioner year round. Further information regarding these points of diversions, pumping sites, or other water right matters can be obtained by contacting Bill West, District 45 Water Commissioner at 970 930-5365 or via email: email@example.com If there questions, comments or concerns regarding this complaint or other like matter, please contact me at 970-876-9910 or 970-620-3277 or firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.

I have been witness to multiple cover up and behind the scenes safety violations in the transmission and pipeline safety departments. I have been threatened with physical violence and termination if I did not stop voicing my concerns. The physical threats came from Jim Arehart, Ryan Echer, Jay Fowler and Joe Quinn. Termination Threats came from Michael Noon and Landon Haack. I am in fear of my safety and employment. The complaints I have are; 1. The MAOP verification tests that were conducted on the pipeline between Glenwood Springs and Edwards Colorado in 2014 were improperly documented. In Jan and Feb of 2015 a Former pipeline safety employee in Glenwood Springs was trying to document and verify the MAOP testing, he discovered that there were no records for this testing. When he refused to cooperate with falsifying these records he was terminated. 2. There are may falsified records and many safety concerns and defects at the Slick rock facility in South West Colorado. This facility was rebuilt in 2012 2013. There were dozens of falsified welding records on faulty weld joints. The Employee that raised this concern was terminated. Additonaly I have seen pictures of a blow down device that is more than 30 feet of the ground and used frequently without any fall safety devices. 3. There is a pipeline defect on the Grand Mesa at the Big Creek Camp Ground on our 6 inch transmission line. I read an email from the Pipeline Safety Guy that was fired last Spring that was written to Jim Arehart. It complained that this defect exceeded the allowable size for a dent, was never X-rayed, and was repaired with some type of cast by personnel there were not qualified to applied the cast. This defect is very near a very popular camp site. This kind of reminds me of Carlsbad. When I was asking about this defect while at dinner with Arehart, Quinn, and Echer, my personal safety was threatened if I did not keep my mouth shut. A month later Haack pulled me aside in Golden and informed m Resolution: Sent letter to anonymous complainant stating: "The COGCC does not regulate pipelines after sales meters or the point of custody transfer. Pipelines after the point of transfer are regulated by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) Public Utilities Commission (PUC).

Issue: On Saturday September 9, 2017 around 11:30am we notice water and bubbles coming from under ground around our water well and unknown gases coming from inside the casing of the water well. Few minutes later we decided to contact an emergency number located in a gas valve that's inside this property, immediately Anadarko company showed up and test the area for gases that show positive around the water well, also positive in 4 other water wells in this neighborhood. Right after they evacuate everyone until fire department arrived. Fire department check some of the houses and told everyone it was save going inside the houses. we have concerns because fire department did't check the water well area as we request and didn't check all the houses only 2. Anadarko was concern and shot down all there lines around the area but the gas continue caming out. Anadarko explain that non of there lines is causing this problem and have no idea where the gas is coming from. After conversation with Greg Deranleau from Colorado oil and gas commission yesterday September 11. he send Chris Canfield to inspect the are and collect samples. Chris told us to follow this complaint do to the unusual situation. Our big concern is that gas continue going out also large amount of water (500 gallons every 3 hours approximately). At this moment we have to pump out all this water away from the area and the fact of no answers of what is going on !!!!!. We are extremely worry about our safety . we understand that is a process to follow but at same time we need this resolve ASAP. . Please let us know if is anything else we can do to accelerate this process or if we also need to contact any other agency . Permit number 260406, well is for household use, installed 12 years ago. Resolution: Landowner determined that water rising along water well casing was from his own well and due to a leak in pipe between well and house located at or near pitless adapter to well. Analytical data on gas composition and isotopic ratios of methane and ethane indicate source is likely microbial. Analysis of general water quality does not indicate impact from nearby oil and gas activities to the water quality of groundwater in the Anaya water well.
