1)Operator shall comply with the most current revision of the Northwest Colorado Notification Policy. See attached notice. 2)Operator shall comply with the most current revision of the Garfield County Rulison Field Notice to Operators, with the following exception: all field notice requirements specified in this notice to operators are superseded by the requirements of the most current revision of the Northwest Colorado Notification Policy (see condition of approval #1). See attached notice. 3)Operator shall provide cement coverage from the production casing shoe (4+1/2" FIRST STRING) to a minimum of 200' above all Mesa Verde Group (and Ohio Creek Formation, if present) oil, gas, and water-bearing sandstone and coalbed formations. Verify production casing cement coverage with a cement bond log. 4)The Operator shall monitor the bradenhead pressure of the proposed well and all offset wells under Operator’s control which penetrate the stimulated formation and have a treated interval separation of 300 feet or less. Monitoring shall occur from 24 hours prior to stimulation and shall continue until 24 hours after stimulation is complete. Recording shall be at a frequency of at least once per 24 hours with the capability of recording the maximum pressure observed during each 24 hour period. Operator shall notify COGCC Engineering staff if bradenhead pressures increase by more than 200 psig. 5)Operator will perform an anti-collision evaluation of all active (producing, shut in, or temporarily abandoned) offset wellbores that have the potential of being within 150 feet of a proposed well prior to drilling operations for the proposed well.

A closed loop system must be implemented during drilling. The moisture content of water/bentonite-based mud (WBM) generated cuttings managed onsite shall be kept as low as practicable to prevent accumulation of liquids greater than de minimis amounts. After drilling and completion operations have been completed, the WBM drill cuttings that will remain on the well pad location (cuttings management area, the cut portion of the pad, cuttings trench, dry cuttings drilling pit), must meet the applicable standards of Table 910-1. Although “landfarming” of E&P waste is prohibited on the location; this shall not preclude onsite disposal of E&P waste in accordance with COGCC Rules and permit conditions. Representative cuttings samples will be analyzed for all Table 910-1 constituents. Any material which does not meet Table 910-1 criteria will either be manifested and disposed offsite at an approved commercial facility, or amended further onsite to comply with Table 910-1. After the drill cuttings have been amended (if necessary) and placed on the well pad, sampling frequency of the drill cuttings (to be determined by the operator) shall be representative of the material left on location. No offsite disposal of cuttings to another oil and gas location shall occur without prior approval of a Waste Management Plan (submitted via a Form 4 Sundry Notice) specifying disposal location and waste characterization method. If operator determines that long-term onsite management of cuttings is necessary, an approved Form 27 remediation plan will be required as well as a waiver for interim site reclamation. Commercial disposal of drill cuttings will only require notification to COGCC via a Form 4 Sundry Notice.

Drilling / Completion Operations: The operator has indicated in the ‘DRILLING WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM SECTION’ of the Form 2 that ‘Cuttings Disposal’ will be “ONSITE” and that the ‘Cuttings Disposal Method’ will be “Beneficial reuse”, ‘Other Disposal Description’ as “Waste Management Plan attached to Form 2A.” However, there is no Waste Management Plan associated with any Form 2As submitted and approved (2A #400194205, 10-06-11; 2A #400360273, 02-08-13; 2A #400441503, 10-06-13; and 2A #400495725, 11-23-13) and there is no definitive disposal method mentioned on the Form 2As, except for ‘Recycle and Bury. Due to these is discrepancies between the Form 2As and Form 2 refiles, the following COA will apply: •Water/Bentonite-Based Drilling Mud (WBM) Generated Solids / Cuttings Management and Onsite Disposal or Beneficial Reuse: a) A closed loop system must be implemented during drilling (as indicated on the the Form 2 and Form 2A). b) All cuttings generated during drilling must be kept in a bermed portion of the well pad prior to disposition (all cuttings containment areas shall be sufficiently impervious); c) The moisture content of WBM-generated drill cuttings managed onsite shall be kept as low as practicable to prevent accumulation of liquids greater than de minimis amounts; d) A Form 4 Sundry Notice must be submitted for any of the WBM-generated drill cuttings that will remain on the well pad location; e) after drilling and completion operations have been completed, any WBM-generated drill cuttings that will remain on the well pad location must be sampled and meet the applicable levels of Table 910-1. In the event that a certain volume of drill cuttings analytically demonstrate constituents above Table 910-1 levels, the cuttings will be remediated. After the drill cuttings have been amended (if necessary), they will be treated as soil and beneficially reused on location (cuttings management area, the cut portion of the pad, cuttings trench, dry cuttings drilling pit, or utilized in onsite interim reclamation activities); f) All liners (if used) associated with WBM-generated drill cuttings must be disposed of offsite per CDPHE rules and regulations; g) Commercial disposal of drill cuttings will require notification (no prior approval) to COGCC via a Form 4 Sundry Notice; h) The operator will implement measures (covers, misting, etc.) in trucks used for offsite disposal to reduce dust and PM emissions during transport of WBM-generated solids and cuttings materials from the well pad location.

Drilling/Completion Operations
One of the first wells drilled on the pad will be logged with open-hole Resistivity Log and Gamma Ray Log from TD into the surface casing. All wells on the pad will have a cement bond log with gamma-ray run on production casing (or on intermediate casing if production liner is run) into the surface casing. The Form 5, Completion Report, for each well on the pad will list all logs run and have those logs attached.The Form 5 for a well without open-hole logs shall clearly state “No open-hole logs were run” and shall clearly identify (by API#, well name & number) the well in which open-hole logs were run.

Planning
Alternative Logging Program: One of the first wells drilled on the pad will be logged with open-hole resistivity log with gamma-ray log from TD into the surface casing. All wells on the pad will have a cement bond log with gamma-ray run on production casing (or on intermediate casing if production liner is run) into the surface casing. The Form 5, Completion Report, for each well on the pad will list all logs run and have those logs attached. The Form 5 for a well without open-hole logs will state “Alternative Logging Program - No open-hole logs were run” and will clearly identify the type of log and the well (by API#) in which open-hole logs were run.

Drilling/Completion Operations
Closed loop system will be used. No pits will be built. Caerus will ensure 110 percent secondary containment for any potential volume of fluids that may be released.
