REPORT OF THE COMMISSION

 

This cause came on for hearing before the Commission on December 9, 1958, at 10:00 a.m., in the Game Room of the Albany Hotel, Denver, Colorado, after publication of Notice of Hearing as required by law, on the application of the Ancora Corporation for an order abolishing a portion of the presently existing spacing pattern in the Young Field, and establishing the N of Section 11, Township 4 North, Range 58 West, Morgan County, Colorado, as a spacing unit; and on the Commission's own motion to consider the realignment of other units in the Young Field, and possible deletions of certain portions of the field.

 

FINDINGS

 

The Commission finds as follows:

 

1. That due notice of the time, place and purpose of the hearing has been given in all respects as required by law.

 

2. That the Commission has jurisdiction over the subject matter embraced in said Notice, and of the parties interested therein, and jurisdiction to promulgate the hereinafter prescribed order.

 

3. That on January 28, 1958, the Commission issued its Order No. 115-1, which, among other things, defined the area and established 320-acre drilling and spacing units for the production of gas from the "D" sand formation underlying the Young Field; and that testimony presented at the hearing indicates that the W of Section 10, NW of Section 13, W of Section 15, and NE of Section 22, Township 4 North, Range 58 West, 6th P.M., Morgan County, Colorado, should be deleted from the area of said Young Field.

 

4. That testimony presented at the hearing indicates that the N of Section 11, Township 4 North, Range 58 West, 6th P.M., Morgan County, Colorado, should be a 320-acre gas unit, which necessitates redesignation of some of the other units in the Young Field.
