Drilling projects proposed in Greeley

GREELEY — Officials say two drilling projects involving dozens of new directional wells are up for consideration in the city of Greeley.

The Greeley Tribune reported that Mineral Resources said the projects would drill several wells from one site. Wells would go down about 1,000 feet before forking in several different directions.

Company officials said past projects show their drilling techniques pose no threat to public safety.

The two projects would drill at least 62 additional wells within city limits.

City officials say their primary concerns are about the aesthetics of the drilling sites and noise pollution. They say there are already wells in the city that have gone largely unnoticed.

A neighborhood meeting on one of the proposals was being held Wednesday.
