Complaint Issue
Issue:     NOTIFICATION Assigned To:    Steve Lindblom Status:     Resolved     3/10/2010
Description: From written statement suppied by the complainant: EnCana Oil & Gas (USA), Inc. ("EnCana") has failed to comply with Rule 305(e) which require notice and an opportunity to request an onsite inspection before proceeding with a permit to drill a new well. Only recently has L.G. Everist, Inc., the surface owner at the site which is to be permitted as Nelson 406032, learned that a formal permit application was filed. Contrary to what may be indicated in your files, EnCana did not receive notice in compliance with Rule 305(e). Instead, Doug Perlman discussed a possible out of window waiver on September 10, 2009. See Exhibit B. L.G. Everist. responded on October 2, 2009. See Exhibit C. After sending the letter on October 2, 2009, L.G. Everist, Inc. did not hear back from Encana. It was only after the 2009 holidays that L.G. Everist, Inc. discovered that EnCana applied for a permit. As you can see, the formal notice requirements for this permit have not been met, and L.G. Everist, Inc. has not been given a fair opportunity for a site inspection or to analyze the requested permit application. L.G. Everist, Inc. requests that COGCC stay [See Rule 303(3)(m)] the pending permit application and schedule an onsite visit between the parties as contemplated by Rule 305(e).
Resolution: Complaint withdrawn by landowner. See scanned documents for letter.
