Conditions of Approval
Operator will implement effective, temporary vehicle tracking control at the location egress to prevent transport of sediment offsite and onto the public road during construction, drilling, completions, stimulation, and flowback operations. Appropriate vehicle tracking control, such as a properly sized cattle guard, will still be required during production operations.

Construction
Berm Construction: Tank secondary containment will be impervious lined steel berms with capacity > 150% volume of the largest tank. Pad will also have tertiary containment of ditch and berm to prevent any spills from leaving site.
Drilling/Completion Operations
Verdad plans to use a Modular Large Volume Tank (MLVT). The planned tank is a 36K BBL tank approximately 148’ in diameter. The MLVT is manufactured by Big Holdings and will be supplied and set up by a third-party vendor. Verdad will follow the COGCC guidance policy dated June 13, 2014 on the use of MLVTs. The MLVT will be on site for approximately 30 days during completion operations.
Dust control
To prevent dust from becoming a nuisance to the public, water trucks will be utilized to spread water across any dust problem areas.
Emissions mitigation
Test separators and associated flow lines, sand traps and emission control systems shall be installed on-site to accommodate green completions techniques. When commercial quantities of salable quality gas are achieved at each well, the gas shall be immediately directed to a sales line or shut in and conserved. If a sales line is unavailable or other conditions prevent placing the gas into a sales line, the operator shall not produce the wells without an approved variance per Rule 805.b.(3)C.
Final Reclamation
P&A’d wells will be identified and marked pursuant to 319.a.(5). Within 90-day subsequent to the time of plugging and abandonment of the entire site, superfluous debris and equipment shall be removed from the site.
General Housekeeping
Cleanup of trash, scrap, and discarded materials will be conducted at the end of each workday.
Material Handling and Spill Prevention
Drip pans will be used during fueling of equipment to contain spills and leaks. AVO (Audio, Visual, Olfactory) inspections of pipe and connections will be performed daily on production equipment to detect leaks which will be immediately corrected, repaired and reported to COGCC as required. Spill prevention Control Countermeasure (SPCC) will be in place to address any possible spill associated with oil and gas operations. All spills will be immediately cleaned up and will be reported if volume exceeds reporting limit. Containment will be used during fueling of equipment to contain spills and leaks during all phases of operations.
Material Handling and Spill Prevention
During drilling operations, we anticipate 4-5 loads, @ 20 yards per load, of cuttings per day will be transported off-site to an approved disposal facility in accordance with Operator’s waste management plan. All loads leaving the location will have a manifest and will be documented. Water-based and Oil-based cuttings will be disposed of offsite and at a licensed, commercial disposal site. No cuttings will be stored on location.
Storm Water/Erosion Control
Storm Water Stormwater management plans (SWMP) will be in place to address construction, drilling, and operations associated with CDPHE permits. BMPs for stormwater will be implemented around the perimeter of the pad prior to or during construction and will vary according to the location. These BMPs will remain in place and maintained throughout operations until final reclamation.
