    May 4 -- In our last posting on April 29, we informed members that the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) released another notice regarding upcoming Mission Change rulemaking to implement SB19-181.

    At its April 29 Hearing, the COGCC announced a revised schedule for the Mission Change Rulemaking. The COGCC determined that it was not feasible to begin the Mission Change rulemaking hearings on April 29. The schedule announced on April 29 provides additional time for parties to identify issues with proposed Mission Change rules and to come up with solutions. The new schedule also incorporates the hearing schedule for the 800, 900 and 1200 Series Rules. On May 1, 2020, Staff released draft 800, 900 and 1200 Series Rules. Staff is soliciting stakeholder input on the 800, 900 and 1200 Series Rules (Underground Injection for Disposal and Enhanced Recovery Projects; Environmental Impact Prevention; and Protection of Wildlife Resources, respectively).

    COGCC Staff requests stakeholders provide written feedback on these draft rules no later than 5:00 pm Friday, May 15, 2020.
