REPORT OF THE COMMISSION

This cause came on for hearing before the Commission on November 19, 1974 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 to restrict the production from an offset well drilled as an exception to the spacing pattern established for the field.

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 August 20, 1974, the Commission issued its Order No. 288-2 which granted an exception to the spacing pattern for the Lone Tree Field for a well, which was drilled and completed as a producer, located in the NW/4SE/4 Section 31, Town-ship 3 South, Range 59 West, 6th P.M., with the provision that, the-Commission should, at the request of interested persons, take such action as will offset any advantage which the person securing the exception may have over other producers by reason of drilling the well as an exception.
