Oil & Gas Updates
Columbine Pad & Production Facility
In two separate actions, the Board of Trustees approved a Special Review Use and Final Development Plan for the Columbine 4-29HZ Pad and Production Facility. The resolutions approved are for seven (7) horizontal oil and gas wells and associated production facilities on a well pad located south of Grant Street (WCR 18) and east of Frontier Street (WCR 15). Before any construction or drilling, the applicant, Kerr-McGee Oil & Gas, must receive approval and permitting through the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC).
The Town of Firestone Development Code regulates siting, access roads, fencing and color of oil and gas wells and associated above ground production facilities through the review of the required Special Review Use and Final Development Plan applications for proposed oil and gas facilities. The COGCC governs the permitting and regulation of oil and gas wells throughout Colorado.

McGavin Pad & Production Facility
During last night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees continued the public hearings for Resolutions 22-06 and 22-07. The decision to continue public hearings came after OXY sent a late afternoon request to continue public hearings.
These proposed resolutions are for the McGavin 6-19HZ Pad and Production Facility Special Review Use and Final Development Plan. This proposed well pad and production facility is for twenty-six (26) horizontal oil and gas wells located south of Pine Cone Avenue (WCR 20) and east of Colorado Boulevard (WCR 13).
PLEASE NOTE: The Board made no decisions on either Resolution 22-06 or Resolution 22-07. The Board of Trustees will have the public hearings on January 26, 2022, at the next Regular Board of Trustees meeting. At this time, the public will have the opportunity to speak on both of these items.
