Encana has developed and implemented a company-wide Responsible Products Program to manage the fluid products used in its hydraulic fracturing operations. This Responsible Products Program helps Encana evaluate the hydraulic fracturing fluid products it uses in its operations for safety, effectiveness and potential public health and environmental impacts. As part of this program, Encana has informed all of its hydraulic fracturing fluid product suppliers that any products containing diesel fuels (as defined by EPA 816-R-12-004), 2-Butoxyethanol (2-BE), benzene or heavy metals (i.e. lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and chromium) cannot be used in hydraulic fracturing at Encana operations. Encana will continue to conduct its hydraulic fracturing operations within the Erie town limits in accordance with its Responsible Products Program.

Well leak detection and repair (a) To identify leaks, Encana will perform audio, visual and olfactory inspections on a monthly basis at all of its new and existing wells and related facilities and equipment within Erie’s Town Limits, provided that such related facilities and equipment are located on the pads for such wells, are part of adjacent tanks used for such pad sites, or are part of storage tanks for such pad sites authorized under Article IV, Section 4 of the Operator Agreement. Encana will also inspect each such well with an infra-red camera on a monthly basis. The initial baseline inspections will occur within sixty (60) calendar days after the Effective Date. After a well has produced for twelve (12) months, the frequency of such inspections shall decrease from monthly to quarterly. If Encana determines that any repairs are required based on these inspections, Encana will promptly initiate these repairs. (b) Encana will report to Erie on the inspection results and any associated repairs the month after the inspection or repair occurs. This information will be collectively reported on a monthly basis in the same format that Encana uses for reporting to the Air Pollution Control Division under Regulation 7, but that is specific to wells located within the Erie Town Limits. Erie will make this information publicly available. (c) This BMP will terminate five (5) years after the Effective Date, after which Encana will continue to comply with the leak detection, repair, and reporting requirements of Regulation 7, as such requirements may be amended.

In an effort to reduce air emissions, Encana intends to construct a central gathering and storage facility at a location in 1N-68W-Section 21 (the “Hub”) to receive liquids from the wells which are the subject of this Agreement. As a result, Encana will not install hydrocarbon storage tanks at these pad sites, which will eliminate potential sources of hydrocarbons from the sites. However, Encana will still install at the pad sites all other equipment and facilities necessary for the production of hydrocarbons, including wellhead equipment, separation equipment, electrical equipment, and temporary flowback equipment (including temporary storage tanks). In addition, this BMP is subject to Article IV, Sections 3 and 4 of the Agreement.

Current Encana drilling operations into and through productive horizons are planned to keep a hydrostatic “over-balance” on the formation. Encana does not intentionally drill ahead with flares and in cases where we do have flares, they are intermittent and only kept for the amount of time it takes to raise our drilling fluid weight to be over-balanced again. In more extreme cases of Well Control Operations, it’s possible to encounter a prolonged flare. This is required in order to bring operations back to normal and ensure proper safety of the rig/rig crews involved during this operation. These flaring instances are rare, but do occur. Encana typically has a good understanding of the pore pressures and will plan accordingly in order to help mitigate potential light impacts to nearby residents.

Road repairs. (a) Erie and Encana recognize that truck traffic accessing the Identified Well Pads may cause damage to Erie roads and that road repairs may be needed to mitigate such damage. To this end, Encana will arrange for a qualified outside consultant to perform a road impact study for all Erie roads that are used to access an Identified Well Pad during the Term of this Agreement. The consultant will conduct the first part of the study prior to Encana’s operations at such Well Pad and the second part of the study after Encana completes all drilling and hydraulic fracturing at such Well Pad. Encana and Erie will use these studies to determine the extent of any damage accruing to the road during the study period. Encana will then promptly pay Erie to repair such damage or else arrange and pay the cost of such repairs itself whichever Erie prefers. (b) Encana shall maintain Financial Assurance to secure its road repair obligations under this Agreement. The amount of such Financial Assurance shall equal Erie’s annual road maintenance budget as of the Effective Date multiplied by the percentage yielded by dividing the total number of Erie road miles as of the Effective Date into the number of such road miles that Encana will use to access the Identified Well Pads. Encana shall select the form of such Financial Assurance and shall maintain such Assurance until Encana fulfills its obligation to repair road damage under Subsection (a).

For this purpose, the noise level shall be measured as set forth in COGCC Regulations 802.b & c, except no measurements shall be taken when traffic is passing the sound level meter, Encana shall be present during all measurements, and building units shall be limited to those units existing as of the Effective Date. As set forth in COGCC Regulation 802.b, the noise levels shall be subject to increase for a period not to exceed fifteen (15) minutes in any one (1) hour period and reduction for periodic, impulsive or shrill noises. (b) For db(C) scale noise, Encana shall comply with the requirements of COGCC Regulation 802, as such requirements may be amended during the term of this Agreement.

Encana will perform a baseline noise survey prior to any operational activity measuring dBA at a distance 350 feet from the noise source (unless there is an occupied structure closer than that – then measurement will be taken 25 feet from the structure). If low frequency noise is a concern, measurement of dBC will be taken 25 feet from the occupied structure towards the noise source. As necessary, based on the survey, Encana will install temporary sound walls to minimize noise and light impacts during drilling and completions and will install permanent noise mitigation at the facility location as necessary to meet all COGCC regulations.
