REPORT OF THE COMMISSION
This cause came on for hearing before the Commission on February 15, 1980 at 9:00 A.M., in Room 110, State Centennial Building, Denver, Colorado, after giving Notice of Hearing as required by law, on the Commission's own motion to consider the rescinding of Order No. 172-1 for certain lands in Washington County, Colorado.
The Commission finds as follows:
1. Due notice of the time, place and purpose of the hearing has been given in all respects as required by law.
2. 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. On August 16, 1963, the Commission issued Order No. 172-1 which established a 40-acre drilling and spacing unit, consisting of the NW/4 SE/4 Section 5, Township 2 South, Range 56 West, 6th P.M., for the production of oil and gas from all sources of supply down to the top of the Skull Creek formation underlying said unit.
4. Since the permitted well for said unit was drilled as a dry hole and plugged and abandoned, and in order to promote future development, Order No. 172-1 is no longer necessary and should be vacated and the area described in Finding 3 herein should be governed by the general rules and regulations of the Commission.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED, that Order No. 172-1 is hereby rescinded and operations in the area, as described in Finding 3 herein, shall be governed by the general rules and regulations of the Commission.
ORDERED this 15th day of February, 1980.
