This cause came on for hearing before the Commission on September 8, 1955, at 10:00 a.m., in Room 704 State Capitol Annex, Denver, Colorado, after Notice of Hearing as required by law, on the application of the British-American Oil Producing Company for an exception to Order No. 25-4 for a well to be drilled off the established spacing pattern.
