Cooperative Relationships

We believe in an open, two-way dialogue in which we provide clear information, listen to feedback and are accountable for our actions. Crestone has worked cooperatively with local communities to create tailored operator agreements that supplement our efforts to operate safely, responsibly and with respect for the environment, while minimizing the temporary impacts of our operations on communities. These agreements supplement our efforts to listen to feedback and concerns from communities and adjust our operations, when possible, based on the latest technologies, mitigation techniques and industry best practices.

Town of Erie
In 2018, we worked cooperatively with the Town of Erie to refresh an operator agreement originally negotiated in 2015. Our agreement reflects the latest technologies and best management practices to minimize the temporary impacts of our operations on surrounding communities for the agreed-upon term.
Town of Firestone
In December 2018, we entered into a cooperative agreement with the Town of Firestone, assuring local residents and businesses that we will go above and beyond to employ the best and safest technology throughout all phases of development in their community.

Adding Value

We’re proud of the work we do and equally proud to call Colorado home. The oil and gas industry is pivotal to our state’s economy, so we must do our part as a responsible operator. By partnering with and supporting local organizations and businesses, Crestone contributes to the strength and sustainability of the communities where we operate.

In 2018, we gave more than $395,000 to non-profit organizations throughout the DJ Basin. Recent and current organizations and initiatives we support, include:

Honor Flight Network
Sponsor World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans travel to visit memorials in Washington D.C.
Habitat for Humanity
Building affordable homes in southwest Denver.
Weld Food Bank
Donations of funds and food to provide meals to the local community.
County Fairs
Participation in local county fairs and donating products to local food pantries.
Local PTAs
Partnering with Parent Teacher Associations in neighboring communities to help bring their programming to life.
