Locations under Development

Well Maintenance

State 30-16 Well

As part of the work to address the impacts near the State 30-16 well, a workover rig is on location to perform remediation. In early July, we installed panels around the project area to avoid any noise or light impacts to the surrounding community. At this time, we believe that the workover rig will be on-site at least through the end of August. As work progresses, we commit to providing frequent updates to state and local government, the school district, and to the community.

 

Our evaluation and testing continue to show no risk to the health, safety, and welfare of the community and environment. In addition, there are no detectable impacts beyond the fenced project area. Since we began air monitoring in August 2021, there’s been no instance where levels approached the Health Guidance Value. Additionally, no methane has been detected at the surface. We will continue to post project updates and air monitoring reports at oxycoloradostakeholder.com/project-updates. 

 

Background: Last year, our teams detected methane in an isolated, below-ground area near the recently retired State 30-16 well approximately 5 feet below the surface. We notified the appropriate local and state entities and took the following safety measures:

·         installed continuous air monitoring,

·         placed a fence around the location, and

·         added additional subsurface sampling points for further testing.
