The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission invites the public and all stakeholders to engage in its rulemakings by providing comment through its new online portals.
As part of its implementation of Senate Bill 19-181, the COGCC is conducting rulemakings on four topics: alternative location analysis, cumulative impacts, flowline and mission change (protecting public health, welfare, environment and wildlife). The commission is offering multiple ways for stakeholders and the public to engage and provide comments during this process.
SB 19-181 ensures that oil and gas development and operations in Colorado are regulated in a manner that protects public health, safety, welfare, the environment and wildlife resources. The COGCC is reviewing its rules and procedures to evaluate what changes are required to reflect the new law’s requirements.
COGCC staff will review all comments submitted. Comments will be taken into consideration while developing staff’s recommendations during rulemaking. The public comments will be also available for COGCC’s commissioners to review as well as to the public.
