REPORT OF THE COMMISSION

 

This cause came on for hearing before the Commission on February 17, 1959, at 10 a.m., in the Auditorium of the Department of Employment Building, Denver, Colorado, after publication of Notice of Hearing as required by law, on the application of the Ancora Corporation for an exception to Order No. 115-1, in the event a well to be drilled in the center of the N NW NE of Section 23, Township 4 North, Range 58 West proves to be a gas well, and that said well shall be the permitted well for the spacing unit upon which it is located.

 

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 s aid [sic] 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 Young Field and established 320-acre drilling and spacing units for the production of gas from the "D" sand formation; and that on December 9, 1958, the Commission issued its Order No. 115-2 which redefined the area and redesignated some units.

 

4. That evidence presented at the hearing indicates that a well drilled in the center of the N NW NE of Section 23, Township 4 North, Range 58 West may be productive of oil in commercial quantities; however, in the event a well drilled in said location proves to be a gas well, an exception to said Order No. 115-1 should be allowed for said well, and it should be the permitted gas well for the drilling and spacing unit upon which it is located.

 

ORDER

 

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED, that an exception is hereby granted for a well to be drilled in the Center of the North Half of the Northwest Quarter of the Northeast Quarter (C N NW NE) of Section Twenty-three (23), Township Four (4) North, Range Fifty-eight (58) West of the 6th P.M., Morgan County, Colorado, and that said well shall be the permitted well for the drilling and spacing unit upon which it is located.
