Best Practices for Community and Environmental Protection
The first Intermountain BMP Project workshop, sponsored by the Natural Resources Law Center and the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, was held in Rifle Colorado on October 14, 2009 at the Garfield County Fairground for over 170 participants.
Speakers from Federal, state and local governments, the community, industry and environmental consultants, and conservation groups focused presentations and discussion on a greater understanding of what BMPs are appropriate to the western slope of Colorado and how they are integrated into developments.
Prior to the main workshop sessions, Williams Production RMT hosted a field trip for almost 60 participants, highlighting their clustered development and centralized fracing in Hayes Gulch and their use of an H&P Flex Rig 280 to drill several wells on a pad in an agricultural community south of Rulison. Following the all day workshop sessions and a participant dinner, CDR Associates facilitated a discussion of Constructive Engagement.
