  • 4644 DENVER July 9, 2019 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission ODOR Description: I am not writing this to simply complain about the oil and gas activity in the area. For the most part it hasn't impacted us other than being a major eye sore and a bit of an embarrassment for when guests are over. But last night at 10:30pm, I let my dog out and for the first time in a long time smelled an overwhelming stench of diesel. It smelled like the off gassing of those playground surfaces they re-did in Vista Ridge a few years ago, but there aren't any of those around. It was the strongest I've smelled in a long time and I'm not simply complaining to complain. I just wanted to document in case anyone else noticed. It may or may not be from any of the drilling operations, but wanted to log the issue. Resolution: Inspection in response to complaint.

  • 4720 DENVER June 5, 2019 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission ODOR Description: Those of us the live around Interchange B have been submitting numerous complaints in the last 2 - 3 days for the odor of Gibson D822, a drilling mud that is a Category 1B carcinogen, containing benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. We have had a variety of health issues up here directly related to air emissions from this drilling mud. I have requested that the CAMML mobile CDPHE van come over to our neighborhood and let us know exactly what we are breathing because we are worried about getting cancer and other diseases and illnesses caused by this industry. National Jewish has told me this is unhealthy for all that live close. The CDPHE has told me the CAMML van cannot come to Interchange B pad because it was booked for Livingston which is where is currently is. Livingston is doing construction not drilling and those of us in Adams are truly your guinea pigs. It makes absolutely no sense for Broomfield to measure air emissions with the CAMML at Livingston during construction phase when we are suffering and our health is being damaged over at Interchange B. This is making us sick and this may have long term repercussions to our health. What facts does Broomfield possess to tell us this is just a nuisance and that our health is not being damaged short or long term? Either pause Extraction at Interchange B or get the CAMML van over here and measure what you are making us breath. Can the COGCC please ask BF to get the CAMML van over to Interchange B to measure what we are breathing? Resolution: CAMML is operated by CDPHE staff. COGCC does not have the authority to determine CAMML usage or placement. Complainant was directed to CDPHE.

  • 4975 DENVER Dec. 30, 2018 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission NOISE Description: Location: 1st ave, east side of Evans Issue: Basically same as previous negated concerns, here is some addition data. 11-17-18 11:00 am 50.5 dBC 11-29-18 9:30 pm 55.0 dBC 11-30-18 4:20 p.m. 53.8 dBC 12-2-18 10:00 am 51.8 dBC 12-5-18 8:05 pm 52.3 dBC 12-8-18 8:00 am 51.0 dBC 12-19-18 4:45 pm 56.0 dBC 12-21-18 5:00 pm 54.0 dBC 12-22-18 2:45 pm 52.0 dBC 12-28-18 9:15 pm 53 dBC Please step up and fulfill your actual role. You are not a taxpayer subsidized advocacy group for the oil and gas industry.I don't even think they actually want one. It cost them over 40 million dollars to advocate for themselves last year. If you would have held them accountable for the issues citizens let you know about, citizens and the industry would be better off. Industry leaders who can make changes don't even get the majority of these complaints. Your shielding them has hurt them as much as the citizens of Colorado. I know that the vast majority of Oil and Gas owners are good citizens and would not allow this ongoing suffering of so many citizens. It is actually your non action on complaint after complaint that has fueled this issue. Noise is described as : noise you hear and feel, continuous, Occur all day, for the last few months it has been louder in the evening and night. Resolution: Inspection in response to complaint. 18#200446840 Field Inspector Assigned: Adam Kraich 18#200446850 Complaint Received: 18#200446865 Date: 1-2-2019 Complaint Contacted: Date: 1-2-2019 @16:07 Location #: 440176 Inspection Document #: 694400080 Nature of complaint: Noise Field Inspector Actions: On 1-2-2019 I received a complaint in regard to noise, with minimal information on location. On 1-2-2019, I contacted the complainant via phone call, who informed me they have performed their own sound measurements at the complainant’s property, as well as across the road from a PDC location they believed to be the source of the noise. The PDC location (Elbert 1-12 ID# 322783) is 1.23 miles east of the complainants address, with a new electrical substation, City of Evans wastewater treatment facility, an occupied industrial park, railroad tracks, a 24 hour truck stop, HWY 85 and well as HWY 34 (see aerial photo). On 1-2-2019, I performed a sound study at the nearest location, the Greeley Directional facility (location ID#332837) as it was the nearest facility. The location was in production at the time of inspection. The sound study indicates compliance under rule 802.b. See sound study attached to inspection document. On 1-9-2019, I was able to perform a sound study on the Elbert 1-12. I was unable to perform sound studies on dates prior as the waste water treatment facility, as well as substation were undergoing heavy industrial activities, as well as contributing weather factors. I confirmed all VRU and ECD infrastructure was in operation at the time of the sound audit. (See photos attached to inspection document). The sound study indicates compliance under rule 802.b. See sound audit document attached to inspection document. On 1/12/2019, I planted a continuous sound monitor 25’ form the complainants address. The sound study was performed form 1/12/19 @10:55am, and ran continuously through 1/15/19 @15:19. The sound study shows compliance under 802.d. Please see

  • 5050 DENVER Sept. 20, 2018 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission OTHER Description: t seems that COGCC and CDPHE employees don't take very seriously how the poisonous toxic fumes coming onto our property and into our homes out here in SW Weld County are causing health damages. Maybe you need help with your education around the Industry you seem to support, when you should be fining them and stopping them from causing harm to us. The TEDX video might help you with this matter. The Science of Fracking and Health Webinar Series METABOLIC DISRUPTING POTENTIAL OF UNCONVENTIONAL OIL AND GAS OPERATION CHEMICALS AND MIXTURES Research has shown hormone disruption in mice exposed during pregnancy to a mixture of common fracking chemicals at likely environmentally relevant concentrations. Dr. Chris Kassotis presents his new research demonstrating metabolic disrupting activity in the fracking chemical mixture, fracking wastewater, and in surface water near unconventional oil and gas operations. The study found all mixtures were capable of inducing fat cell development and proliferation at very low concentrations and identifies the likely underlying molecular mechanisms for some of these effects. The webinar is available for viewing now . Watch it on TEDX's website , where you can read more about the presenter and access the published study. Or you can view it on our YouTube channel and subscribe to receive notification of new webinars. Chris Kassotis, PhD is an NRSA Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. He completed his PhD at the University of Missouri working with Susan Nagel to assess unconventional oil and gas operations as a novel source of endocrine disrupting chemicals in water, and the potential for adverse human and animal health outcomes from exposure. He is now working in Heather Stapleton's lab at Duke to assess the adipogenic activity of complex chemical mixtures present in indoor house dust and other matrices as well as to develop new assays to isolate and characterize novel endocrine disruptors in complex mixtures.

  • 5136 DENVER Aug. 13, 2018 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission NOISE Description: I hear inside my house, throughout the day and night, intermittent low pitched humming sounds. I could actually hear the same low pitched sound outside my house, in my back yard a few days ago. My issue is throughout the day and night I hear an intermittent, from a split second length to 5-6 seconds long low pitched sound, throughout my house! In my basement or bedroom It does not matter. It is close to a low C sound that I hear but my wife cannot. I have been hearing it for a number of weeks and it has become annoying and intrusive to just having peace in my own house! I wish I could find out what causes the sound. I do know that drilling is/has been approved for under our subdivision (Hawkstone). I'm curious if anyone else in Hawkstone has complained. Resolution: On 8/14/2018, COGCC inspector performed a complete inspection of the facility closest to the complainant's residence (#436310). The well was hard shut in at the wellhead. Additionally, the equipment on location was de-energized,including VOC combustors (FIR #691300435). Inspector also inspected a facility west of the complainant’s subdivision and found the well hard shut in as well as de-energized equipment. Complainant referred to local government as we have eliminated the source of C-scale from being an oil & gas issue.

  • 5245 DENVER May 11, 2018 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission OTHER Description: ,I have submitted complaints going back many years for oil and gas activity in Las Animas County. In the past my complaints have become a permanent part of the COGCC record, however recently the COGCC has purged my complaints from the database. Why is this? Every complaint that I have made was backed up by facts and the COGCC should leave my complaints for the public to see, Select purging of complaints from your database shows that a bias exists in the COGCC in favor of oil and gas interests. A state agency should be transparent however the COGCC exhibits corrupt tendencies when the operate with a bias in favor of the industry they they are supposed to regulate. Resolution: Review of COGCC’s database shows Mr. Nelson has filed ten (10) complaints since August 9, 2001. All ten are accessible via website tools

  • 5301 DENVER April 18, 2018 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission AIR QUALITY Description: ,Anadarko took a water sample from our well at 19357 Weld County Rd. 8. The methane concentration in the original test was 12.8 milligrams per liter. In a secondary test, where it was confirmed that the methane was biogenic, their representative informed me that the methane was testing at 77 milligrams per liter. After speaking with the tenants who occupy the two residences at 19357, they indicated that they have noticed an increase in the spitting that occurs when any faucet is turned on. This is caused by a build up in methane in the lines. One tenant has lived on the property for seven years and the second for four years. I have also noticed this same fact in my residence at 19207 Weld County Rd. 8 and when I fill stock tanks for the horses at the barn. Also, in the early mornings I have noticed a strong deisel and methane smell in the area. There are at least seven new wells being drilled within a mile radius of our homes. In general the air quality has not been good since all of the fracking started in this area, and there is much more big rig traffic in the area. I have smelled these odors mostly in the morning when there is no wind. Resolution: Regional air quality concerns are under the jurisdiction of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Air Pollution Control Division (APCD)

  • 7693 DENVER July 9, 2015 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission OTHER Description: In 2003, I made investments with your company totaling $1,183,174.00. During the time that I made my investments, I spoke with several representatives, however I mainly corresponded with Steve Ziemke, Vice President of Heartland Energy, Inc., hereinafter, (“HEI”). During our conversations, offerings of various oil and gas partnerships were supported by geologist reports and promises of lucrative revenue potential based on low risk investment with high return. Along with tax incentives, I was convinced to invest. As an investor, I was never informed that HEI was owned and operated by Charles Reed Cagle who, while operating several other companies, solicited the same type of investments. Mr. Cagle has been found guilty by at least two state commissioners regarding these types of investments. In fact, fraud was proven on at least one occasion by the state of Colorado which ordered a Complaint for Injunction. Your company and its owner/operator has already been found in violation of several civil laws that govern the business of these investments. Furthermore, all of the offering information I was supplied with was materially misrepresented solely for the purpose of convincing me to invest. Please note that at the time of my investment, I was over 65 years of age. As you can see, I am displeased with the way my investment has been handled and your company’s lack of interest in righting the wrongs that have taken place. As I have given your company adequate time to provide returns on my investment, the lack of progress is unfortunate but not an excuse. I demand my money be returned to me plus $1,316,826.00 for mental anguish and suffering, bringing the total owed to me to $2,500,000.00. Resolution: This is an issue outside of the jurisdiction of the COGCC and more appropriate for a court of law. Sent a letter to the complainant regarding this.
  • 7716 DENVER June 2, 2015 Operator: Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission NOT ENOUGH DATA Description: Very concerned about the fact that this authority for oil and gas in Colorado, adheres to the notion there is no such thing as "local control" or local regulation of oil and gas activity, yet it is the same "local control", say in the form of a city council, that makes the final decisions to permit oil and gas and uranium recovery in places like Fremont County, Colorado, in places like the Florence Oil Field, halfway between the superfund disaster site Cotter, with known nuclear groundwater contamination and migration off site for decades by the State of Colorado and Cotter, and the SuperMax, a federal prison in Florence, CO, which maintains the highest level of security of any federal prison in the United States, due to the fact it is housing the worlds most dangerous terrorists. Seems to me as the Colorado Oil and Gas authority for the State of Colorado, you have shot yourselves in the foot so to speak, with a locally controlled decision so egregious, and one you all apparently have no issues with, that the argument against local control is null and void by these facts. As well, the commission is not addressing sound science by failing to address and publicly acknowledge that fracking activities are causing earthquakes, that Cotter documents from 2 decades ago that the state maintains as an Agreement State with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, indicate magnitude 5 and greater earthquakes have been recorded in Southern Colorado for decades, prior to the modern day fracking industry dominating any and every space they could, and with the higher earthquake risk now associated with fracking through sound science, and state and federal laws which require proper disclosure to the public when a "normal" activity carries a higher risk of a dangerous outcome, why none of the people who are charged with upholding public interest and the health and well-being of the public per their job descriptions as public servants, are raising hell when decisions like these are being made? Because of this poor decision and lack of o Resolution: No site specific information nor no specific issue identified in the complaint that would allow the COGCC to investigate. Closing due to the lack of ability to identify what the issue is that COGCC can investigate and assist.
