Planning
COGCC Rule 803 Lighting Planning: • Lighting on location is considered temporary and will be used during recompletion activities. Permanent lighting will not be installed and utilized during normal production operations. Temporary lighting will be directed downward, inward, and shielded towards location to avoid glare on public roads and Building Units within 1,000 feet. Lighting will be turned off when practical, i.e., no operations being conducted.

Planning
Floodplain Requirements (COGCC Rule 603.h) Noble has applied for the Floodplain Development Permit (FHDP) permit with Weld County. The D19-01 well pad lies within the FEMA 100-year floodplain delineation. The pad will incorporate drainage and hydrologic considerations during design and construction with wellheads and flowlines oriented parallel with floodwater flow and automation for immediate, remote shut in capabilities. Structural guards/barriers will be installed upstream of wellheads to deflect flood debris, vulnerable slopes will be stabilized, and access road lengths will be minimized.

General Housekeeping
Housekeeping will consist of neat and orderly storage of materials and fluids. Wastes will be temporarily stored in sealed containers and regularly collected and disposed of at offsite, suitable facilities. If spills occur prompt cleanup is required to minimize any commingling of waste materials with stormwater runoff. Routine maintenance will be limited to fueling and lubrication of equipment. Drip pans will be used during routine fueling and maintenance to contain spills or leaks. Any waste product from maintenance will be containerized and transported offsite for disposal or recycling. There will be no major equipment overhauls conducted onsite. Equipment will be transported offsite for major overhauls. Cleanup of trash and discarded materials will be conducted at the end of each work day. Cleanup will consist of patrolling the roadway, access areas, and other work areas to pickup trash, scrap debris, other discarded materials, and any contaminated soil. These materials will be disposed of properly.

Storm Water/Erosion Control
Stormwater management plans (SWMP) are in place to address construction, drilling, and operations associated with Oil & Gas development throughout the state of Colorado in accordance with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and General Permit No.’s: COR03N578; COR03N579; COR03N580; and COR03O059. The basis for the Sensitive Area Determination for the 19-01 pad is that (1) the depth to groundwater is less than 25’ for a well that is more than 1,600 feet away from the pad, and (2) the location is in a mapped floodplain. Stormwater from the site is unlikely to have any negative impacts on the shallow groundwater identified. The location is within the mapped floodplain; however, the intermittent stream is 817 feet southeast and the area between the location and the stream is primarily open rangeland, which would allow for significant settling and infiltration. Therefore, stormwater contaminants would be unlikely to reach the intermittent stream if uncontrolled stormwater were to leave the location. In addition, Noble will implement stormwater BMPs to minimize erosion and transportation of sediment off-site. The planned stormwater BMPs include stabilizing soil stockpiles with tracking and/or hydromulch; the use of stormwater diversions such as ditches; and BMPs that will slow stormwater runoff and settle out sediment, such as sediment traps and ripping. However, BMPs may be changed or modified during or after pad construction, as needed.

Dust control
COGCC Rule 805.c Fugitive Dust Noble shall employ practices for control of fugitive dust caused by their operations. Such practices shall include but are not limited to the use of speed restrictions, regular road maintenance, restriction of construction activity during high- wind days, and silica dust controls when handling sand used in hydraulic fracturing operations. Additional management practices such as road surfacing, wind breaks and barriers, or automation of wells to reduce truck traffic may also be used if technologically feasible and economically reasonable to minimize fugitive dust emissions.
