Proposed Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Rules

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) has proposed numerous revisions to their oil and gas regulations, several of which could affect pipeline operators in the state. These include:

  • New definitions for Gas Gathering System; Gathering Line; and Oil and Gas Facility
  • New gas facility reporting and registration requirements
  • New financial assurance requirements
  • A requirement to, where practicable: consolidate facilities and pipeline rights-of-way in order to minimize adverse impacts to wildlife resources
  • A requirement that any operator of a COGCC-jurisdictional pipeline become a member of the Utility Notification Center of Colorado
  • New pipeline construction requirements.
