|IN THE MATTER OF THE PROMULGATION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF FIELD RULES TO GOVERN OPERATIONS IN THE SPINDLE FIELD, SHANNON FORMATION, WELD COUNTY COLORADO||Cause No. 250 Order No. 250-4|
REPORT OF THE COMMISSION
This cause came on for hearing before the Commission on July 18, 1972, at 9 A.M., in Room 132, State Services Building, Denver, Colorado, after giving Notice of Hearing as required by law, on the application of Amoco Production Company, for an order establishing 80-acre drilling and spacing units for the production of oil from the Shannon formation, underlying certain lands in Weld County, Colorado.
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 evidence presented at the hearing indicates that there has not been sufficient development to determine if the Shannon formation is a common source of supply of oil underlying the area requested to be spaced, nor was there sufficient evidence to indicate that one well will efficiently and economically drain 80-acres; therefore, the application submitted by Amoco Production Company, to establish 80-acre drilling and spacing units for the production of oil from the Shannon formation underlying certain lands in the Spindle Field, should be denied.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED, that the application of Amoco Produc-tion Company, to establish, 80-acre drilling and spacing units for the production of oil from the Shannon formation underlying certain lands in the Spindle Field, Weld County, Colorado, is hereby denied.
ORDERED this 20th day of July 1972.
