I want to comment on a proposed oil and gas location. Should I file a complaint to do this?
No, please do not file a complaint.
You can enter a comment directly on the actual pending application for that location. The application for every drilling permit and every oil and gas location is open for a 20 day public comment period. (This comment period can be extended to 30 or 40 days by your Local Government.) During the comment period the general public can submit comments and concerns to the COGCC related to the proposed oil and gas operations. Entering a comment is the most effective way to voice and express concerns related to a proposed oil and gas location. Your comments are included in the application and are reviewed by COGCC staff when the application is processed for approval.
Instructions for making a public comment on a proposed oil and gas location can be found at:
