State 30-16 Well

During routine inspections associated with our plugging and abandonment process, methane was detected in an isolated, below-ground area near a retired well approximately 5 feet below the surface. No methane was detected at the surface. We notified the appropriate local and state entities and let them know that, in conjunction with our third-party consultants, we continue to believe there are no risks to the health, safety, or welfare of the community, our employees, or wildlife.

 

We are implementing several additional safety measures:

  • Installed continuous air monitoring on-site.

  • Placing a fence around the location.

  • Adding more subsurface sampling points for further testing.

 

Additional testing is ongoing to verify the preliminary results before submitting a remediation plan to the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC). We will continue to work with the COGCC on this matter.
