The Commission unanimously approved the amended minutes from the August 2002 meeting.

 

Directors Report: Director Griebling provided a written report and discussed the following: Statistics show that the number of permits is approximately 10 percent below last years number of permits. It is the second highest record level. RSVPs for the October 2nd, 2002 Northwest Oil and Gas Forum are required and accepted through September, 24, 2002. The Air Pollution Control Division has set up air sampling canisters in various areas in the Grand Valley and Rifle regions. They have found that no significant impacts from oil and gas have occurred. Morris Bell was thanked for his work in preparing comments on the La Plata County Impact Report. His comments were attached to the staff report. Carol Rensel and Audra Serlet were introduced to the Commission and welcomed to the staff. Brian Macke was recognized for all of his work at the Colorado State Fair and the staff who worked at the booth was thanked as well. Three variances under Rule 502.b. were granted this month.

 

Director Griebling recommended a possible rulemaking to require a notice to offset mineral owners in certain drilling and spacing units. Chair Sonnenberg suggested that the rulemaking be docketed for December if there were no objections from the Commissioners.

 

Assistant Attorney Generals Report: AAG Harmon reminded the Commissioners that September 23 was the deadline for the Commissions response in the Delta County case. An appeal has been filed in the Rule 303.a. case. The Town of Frederick case has been appealed to the Colorado Supreme Court.

 

Director Griebling handed out a letter from people in favor of development in Delta County.

 

Commissioner Comments: Commissioner Casey mentioned her concern that production from the Lewis Formation is reported as a part of the Mesaverde Formation, rather than being defined stratigraphically on its own. The staff will look into this and report back to the Commissioners.

 

Audience Comments: Ken Wonstolen, COGA Mr. Wonstolen complimented the staff and Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on the Colorado State Fair exhibit. October 24, 2002 is the COGA annual meeting and lunch. All of the Commissioners will be invited. COGA has been working with the Air Pollution Control Commission (APCC) staff on flashing regulations. They have a meeting on October 17 for a rulemaking and would like to have a COGCC Commissioner attend. COGA wants to remind the APCC that the COGCC has some authority over air emissions and think that the COGCC should let the APCC know of their willingness to work with them. Chair Sonnenberg said he will meet with the staff and phone in Commissioner Klish and Commissioner Mueller to decide how Chair Sonnenberg will respond at the APCC hearing. He will then email the other Commissioners to let them know how he will respond. Chair Sonnenberg also suggested that letters be sent out annually to legislators about this time of the year to advise them of what the COGA sees on the legislative horizon. A letter has been sent to the leadership in the General Assembly to encourage no changes to the COGCCs budget or funding.

 

Executive Directors Report: Mary Marchun, the new legislative liaison has been responding to legislators questions on the COGCC and the makeup of the Commission. She is trying to participate in CCIs new Commission orientation and also wants to participate in the orientation session for new legislators. A forum to address water issues related to coalbed methane wells is planned to be held on October 30, 2002 in Trinidad. (This meeting date was subsequently changed to November 20, 2002). A large cut, more than previously thought, is likely for the state budget. Severance tax, along with other cash funds will be considered for help with the $300 million shortfall. The next meeting of the Royalty task force will be September 25, 2002.
