PRODUCED WATER OR FLOWBACK WATER OR OTHER EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION WASTE SHALL NOT BE TEMPORARILY STORED IN MODULAR LARGE VOLUME STORAGE TANKS (MLVSTs). PRODUCED WATER OR FLOWBACK WATER SHALL BE TEMPORARILY STORED IN FRAC TANKS.
As required for Groundwater Baseline Sampling; Operator shall comply with Rule 609. STATEWIDE GROUNDWATER BASELINE SAMPLING AND MONITORING: c. Inability to locate an Available Water Source. Prior to spudding, an operator may request an exception from the requirements of this Rule 609 by filing a Form 4 Sundry Notice for the Director’s review and approval if: (1) No Available Water Sources are located within one-half (1/2) mile of a proposed Oil and Gas Well, Multi-Well Site, or Dedicated Injection Well;
Within 6-months of completion of the Water Share, all temporary above ground conveyance lines, pumps, valves, and any other associated equipment and materials shall be removed and areas reclaimed.
1) Operator shall file APD's during the summer of 2018 and maintain active permits until drilling commences.
GENERAL MULTI-WELL PIT AND ROAN RIM COAs: Notify the COGCC Oil and Gas Location Assessment (OGLA) Specialist for Western Colorado (Dave Kubeczko; email dave.kubeczko@state.co.us) and the COGCC Field Inspection Supervisor for Northwest Colorado (Shaun Kellerby; email shaun.kellerby@state.co.us) 48 hours prior to construction of the pit. A Form 15 Earthen Pit Permit must be submitted to the COGCC Location Specialist for Western Colorado (Dave Kubeczko; email dave.kubeczko@state.co.us) and approval must be obtained prior to construction of the completion/flowback fluids pit. Notify the COGCC Oil and Gas Location Assessment (OGLA) Specialist for Western Colorado (Dave Kubeczko; email dave.kubeczko@state.co.us) and the COGCC Field Inspection Supervisor for Northwest Colorado (Shaun Kellerby; email shaun.kellerby@state.co.us) 48 hours prior to start of pit and fracing operations. Operator must ensure 110 percent secondary containment for any volume of fluids contained at well site during drilling and completion operations; including, but not limited to, construction of a berm or diversion dike, diversion/collection trenches within and/or outside of berms/dikes, site grading, or other comparable measures (i.e., best management practices (BMPs) associated with stormwater management) sufficiently protective of nearby surface water. Any berm constructed at the well pad location will be stabilized, inspected at regular intervals (at least every 14 days), and maintained in good condition. No portion of any pit that will be used to hold liquids shall be constructed on fill material, unless the pit and fill slope are designed and certified by a professional engineer, subject to review and approval by the director prior to construction of the pit. The construction and lining of the pit shall be supervised by a professional engineer or their agent. The entire base of the pit must be in cut. If there are changes to the pit construction (i.e. changes from the submitted construction layout drawings), then the operator must submit a professional engineer (PE) approved/stamped as-built drawing (plan view and cross-sections) of the completion/flowback pit within 30 calendar days of construction. The completion/flowback fluids multi-well pit must be double-lined. The pit will also require a leak detection system (Rule 904.e). After installation of the uppermost liner and prior to operating the pit, the synthetic liner(s) shall be tested by filling the pit with at least 4 feet of water, measured from the base of the pit (not to exceed the 2- foot freeboard requirement). The operator shall monitor the pit for leaks for a period of 72 hours prior to draining the pit and commencing operations. Operator shall notify the COGCC Oil and Gas Location Assessment (OGLA) Specialist for Western Colorado (Dave Kubeczko; email dave.kubeczko@state.co.us) 48 hours prior to start of the hydrotest. Hydrotest monitoring results must be maintained by the operator for the life of the pit and provided to COGCC prior to using the pit. The nearby hillside and and fill-material bermed portions (if present) of the pit must be monitored for any day-lighting of fluids throughout pit operations. The completion/flowback fluids multi-well pit must be fenced and netted. The operator must maintain the fencing and netting until the pit is closed in accordance with Rule 905. Closure of Pits, and Buried or Partially Buried Produced Water Vessels. Flowback and stimulation fluids must be sent to tanks, separators, or other containment/filtering equipment before the fluids can be placed into any pipeline or pit located on the well pad or into tanker trucks for offsite disposal. The flowback and stimulation fluid tanks, separators, or other containment/filtering equipment must be placed on the well pad in an area with additional downgradient perimeter berming. The area where flowback fluids will be stored/reused must be constructed to be sufficiently impervious to contain any spilled or released material. Surface water samples from the unnamed stream located to the north on Dry Fork (at the location identified as ENPR23ST on attached map, approximately 1.6 miles north of the SG L27 pad) shall be collected prior to pit use and every 12 months to evaluate potential impacts from pit operations. At a minimum, the surface water samples will be analyze for the following parameters: major cations/anions (chloride, fluoride, sulfate, sodium); total dissolved solids (TDS); and BTEX/DRO. Prior to pit closure, operator must submit E&P waste disposal information (if different from original Form 15 submittal) via a Form 4 Sundry Notice to the COGCC Location Specialist for Western Colorado (Dave Kubeczko; email dave.kubeczko@state.co.us) and the COGCC Environmental Supervisor for Western Colorado (alex.fischer@state.co.us)for approval.

• Use solar panels as an alternative energy source for on-location production equipment, where appropriate, economically and technically feasible. • Use multiple gathering lines placed in a single trench to minimize disturbance and construction, where appropriate, economically and technically feasible. • Install pipeline crossings at right angles to the drainages, wetlands, and perennial water bodies, where appropriate, economically and technically feasible. • Maintain a minimum of five feet of soil cover between the pipeline and the lowest point of the drainage or water body channel.
