Setback Stakeholder Group

During the 2007-2008 rule making process, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission deferred action on the well to building setback requirements set forth in Rule 603.. Since that time, some local governments, environmental groups, and individuals have continued to raise questions and express concerns about these requirements. In response to these questions and concerns, the COGCC Director recommended at the January 2012 Commission hearing that the Commisson staff commence a stakeholder process to discuss this issue. The Commission agreed to the recommendation.
