COGCC Regulations & Their Violations

The Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) monitors the oil and gas industry to foster the responsible development of these natural resources and seeks to serve all parties involved in this field. The commission is concerned with efficient exploration, protection of public health, safety and welfare, prevention of waste, protection of mineral owners' rights and environmental protection. It lays down many rules regarding these matters, specifically covering such issues as:

When these regulations are violated, there are specific procedures that must be followed. This begins with a Notice of Alleged Violation (NOAV) and allows the opportunity to resolve the matter without an enforcement hearing. It is vital you seek the advice of a Colorado oil and gas law attorney, who can seek to achieve a favorable outcome for you and represent you at the hearing should the matter proceed.
