Safeguarding Public Health and the Environment

Crestone safeguards public health and the environment while producing energy in Colorado by going beyond what the regulations require. The company has been a pioneer in identifying, investing in and adopted new technologies for reducing the temporary impacts of energy production on nearby communities, including protections for air quality, water, wildlife and quality of life.

In 2020, Crestone became the first energy company in Colorado to adopt a continuous, real-time air quality monitoring system for the vast majority of its Colorado production locations. For more information on the pilot program and technology from Project Canary, see the news release here.

Crestone also was the first U.S. onshore oil and gas producer to adopt an innovative high-performance drilling fluid that is non-toxic, biodegradable and virtually odor-free.

Crestone was recognized recently for these efforts and named a 2020 ‘Gold Leader’ by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Environmental Leadership Program.
