In February 2017, Crestone Peak Resources began the first step in our phased approach of re-entry into Boulder County. We filed a Rule 216 Comprehensive Drilling Plan (CDP) Application with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) because we recognize the need for a collaborative, methodical and transparent planning process for responsible oil and gas development.
Crestone is dedicated to ensuring that all necessary stakeholders are involved in the planning process and believe that the CDP is one of the best ways to make sure this occurs. Those stakeholders include the COGCC; Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE); Commission of Public Works (CPW); Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT); Colorado State Land Board (CSLB); Boulder County and affected surface owners.
With more than 5000 acres of assets in Boulder County that Crestone (and our predecessor) has been prohibited in accessing for more than five years, we feel a CDP is the only way to approach development, particularly in this area.
