Annotation: This 2017 agreement (aka MOU) follows a 2013 agreement between Broomfield and Sovereign Operating Company (see document CO173) which was supplemented in 2016 after Extraction became the successor-in-interest to Sovereign. Extraction is also the successor-in-interest to a surface use agreement between Broomfield and Noble Energy. This agreement was made to achieve the goals of Broomfield and Extraction to develop oil and gas in a cooperative manner, including adopting the best management practices set out in Exhibit B at the well sites set forth in Exhibit A.
