COGCC Weighs In On Ursa Permit Rejection

Nov 9, 2017

Form 2A of Ursa Resources’ application to drill 24 new natural gas wells and a wastewater injection well in Battlement Mesa was recently rejected by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Greg Deranleau, COGCC’s Environmental Manager, to find out more about the rejection and waivers that would allow gas drilling within 500 feet of homes.
