Representative Saine and Representative Gray, co-prime bill sponsors, presented Senate Bill 18-230. The bill permits the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) to authorize more than one drilling unit in a pooling order for oil and gas resources. Drilling units may cover any pool, or a portion of a pool. A statutory pooling order must specify that a nonconsenting owner is immune from liability for costs arising from spills, releases, damage, or injury resulting from oil and gas operations on the drilling unit.
Representative Saine distributed amendment L.007 [Attachment L].
