Construction
(604.c.(2).E.) This location will be a multi-well pad, located in a manner which allows for the greatest distances possible from building units, the installation and removal of noise mitigation, and construction of all-weather access roads. In order to minimize potential impacts to the surrounding lands, the facilities will be located on north side of the pad. The City of Greeley has approved the location of the wells and production equipment. Extraction will be using electricity to power the site to further reduce noise emissions. Per the City of Greeley code, fencing and landscaping will be installed around the location for visual mitigation.

Noise mitigation
(604.c.(2)A. and 802) Noise levels will be assessed to maintain compliance with COGCC Rules 604.c.(2).A. and 802 during drilling and completion operations. Construction activity will take place during daylight hours only. Should noise levels exceed the maximum permissible levels for Industrial Zones, as measured at the nearest Building Unit per COGCC Rules 604.c.(2).A. & 802, additional mitigation measures will be considered and implemented to maintain compliance. A 32-foot sound wall will be installed on all sides of the pad during the drilling and completions phases, while allowing for ingress and egress. An electric rig will be utilized for the drilling phase and quiet fleet for the completions phase. Extraction is currently working with the local power company to supply high-line power to the facility. The use of utility power to operate at the site provides reduced noise at the location.

(803) Permanent lighting will be installed around the facility to allow both the operator and haulers to conduct safe operations at night. All light sources during all phases of operations will be directed downwards and away from occupied structures. Temporary sound walls will be installed on all sides of the pad during drilling and completion operations and the rig floor will be shrouded to further reduce light emissions. Additionally, lighting shield devices will be installed on all lights.

Emissions mitigation
(604.c.(2)C.iii) During flowback, production will be sent through a temporary high-pressure separator and into separate controlled oil and water tanks, which means the tanks will have a dedicated vapor control system (VCS) line to capture any vapors. VCS lines are routed at a minimum of 75’ away from the tanks to a combustor to burn. Any gas from the temporary separator will be routed at a minimum of 75’ away to an enclosed combustor to burn. This is only until the well cleans up to the point that it can go down the flowline to the production facility.

Emissions mitigation
(604.c.(2)F. & 604.c(4)B.ii.) Extraction will perform Audio Visual and Olfactory (AVO) inspections at a minimum frequency of minimum to identify fluid leaks, including, but not limited to, visually inspecting all wellheads, tanks and fittings. As part of Extraction’s Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) program, all facilities including above ground flowlines and piping will be inspected monthly with an infa-red camera. This frequency may be reduced as production declines in accordance to Colorado Department of Health and Environment - Regulation 7 Section XVII. Additionally, inspections will be completed monthly, if not more frequently, as part of Extraction’s internal Audio, Visual, and Olfactory (AVO) Monitoring Program. Records of the AVO inspections will be maintained through Extraction’s field data capture software. In the event that a leak is identified, reporting and repair will be initiated through Extraction’s internal process.
