Thank you Western Colorado. The West Slope Colorado Oil & Gas Association members were truly humbled by the hundreds of energy families and employees who showed up last night in support of our industry. The stories told by your families demonstrated our industry is made up of husbands, wives and people who wake up everyday doing their very best work.

Lois,  BLM land belongs to the citizens and leases can be cancelled or at the least reviewed.  I like the fact that the oil and gas industry provides jobs and brings good people to Western Colorado.  I also like the fact that their are people concerned about keeping our water supply pristine!

Like Rose said,  we deserve to feed our babies, but we better be able to drink the water when the energy companies bail on us again!

The energy industry side!?!? An entire family that was sickened and threatened with death from exposure to drilling and fracking around their home was awarded almost $3 million in a lawsuit against Aruba Petroleum for harming their health!

Colorado has the most strict energy development guidelines and regulations in the country.  The operators on the Western Slope go above and beyond to make sure development is done safely and environmentally friendly.  Those of us working in the industry love and enjoy Colorado for all it has to offer, no less than anyone else in the state.  We pump millions into the economies of every town on the Western Slope and beyond…we also snowmobile, mountain bike, ski, snowboard, hike, fish, hunt or just tour around the state, patronizing cafe’s, theatre’s, and lodging for example, contributing to the livelihoods of all business owners. We don’t want that sacrificed any more than anyone else. I caution everyone concerned about energy development…do not be blinded by the fear tactics and rhetoric put forth by anti-energy groups.  Research and understand the facts…the industry will work with you, and will be good neighbors for many years to come.
