Construction: The following conditions of approval (COAs) will apply: COA 23 - For purposes of safety (steep / high fill slopes) and environmental protection, operator must ensure secondary containment for any volume of fluids contained at the well site during drilling and completion operations; including, but not limited to, construction of a berm or diversion dike, diversion/collection trenches within and/or outside of berms/dikes, site grading, or other comparable measures (i.e., best management practices [BMPs] associated with fluid containment/control as well as stormwater management for the control of run-on and run-off) sufficiently protective of nearby surface water. Any berm constructed at the well pad location will be stabilized, inspected at regular intervals as required by CDPHE (at least every 14 days and after precipitation events), and maintained in good condition. Fill slopes will need to be compacted to industry standards to prevent any slope subsidence or movement to ensure slope stability. COA 24 - The design/build of any perimeter berm or fluid management structures shall be sized, constructed, and compacted sufficiently to contain and/or manage potential fluid releases during operations in a manner that prevents or controls potential sedimentation and scouring on adjacent lands and drainages. Such design/build of perimeter berms or fluid management structures may include, but are not limited to the following: on location berms; diversion ditches; enhanced vegetation; or other design features necessary to achieve the goal of protecting adjacent lands and drainages from potential sedimentation and scouring. COA 28 - The location is in an area of moderate to high run-on/run-off potential; therefore standard stormwater BMPs must be implemented; prior to, during, and after well pad location construction (as well as during drilling, completion, and production operations) at this location to insure compliance with CDPHE and COGCC requirements and to prevent any stormwater run-on and /or stormwater run-off. COA 44 - The access road will be constructed maintained as to not allow sediment to migrate from the access road to nearby surface water or any drainages leading to surface water. COA 76 - Strategically apply fugitive dust control measures to access roads and well pad to reduce fugitive dust and coating of vegetation and deposition in water sources. Operator 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 may be used.

Planning
- Maximize the utility of surface facilities by developing multiple wells from a single pad (directional drilling), and by collocating multipurpose facilities (for example, well pads and compressors) to avoid unnecessary habitat fragmentation and disturbance of additional geographic areas. - Combine and share roads to minimize habitat loss/fragmentation - Avoid constructing any road segment in the channel of an intermittent or perennial stream - Avoid new surface disturbance and placing new facilities in key wildlife habitats in consultation with CDOW. - Minimize the number, length, and footprint of oil and gas development roads - Use existing roads where possible - Combine utility infrastructure (gas, electric, and water) planning with roadway planning to avoid separate utility corridors - Where possible, consolidate pipeline and existing roadways, or roadways that are planned for development - Maximize the use of directional drilling to minimize habitat loss/fragmentation - Maximize use of long-term centralized tank batteries to minimize traffic - Maximize use of remote completion/frac operations to minimize traffic - Maximize use of remote telemetry for well monitoring to minimize traffic

Drilling/Completion Operations
- Use centralized hydraulic fracturing operations. - TEP will ensure 110 percent secondary containment for any volume of fluids contained at the well site during drilling and completions operations. - TEP will implement best management practices to contain any unintentional release of fluids.

Interim Reclamation
- Utilize staked soil retention blankets for erosion control and reclamation of large surface areas with 1.5:1 or steeper slopes. Avoid use of plastic blanket materials. - Use only certified weed-free native seed in seed mixes, except for non-native plants that benefit wildlife - TEP will use certified, weed free grass hay, straw, hay or other mulch materials used for the reseeding and reclamation of disturbed areas. - Reduce visits to well-sites through remote monitoring (i.e. SCADA) and the use of multi-function contractors.
