State says it will renew study of oil, gas emissions
The Colorado Department of Natural Resources, in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, announced this morning that the state will launch “a significant study of emissions tied to oil and gas development” this summer
The study announcement comes while the state’s oil and gas regulatory authority, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, is holding meetings in the Denver this week about proposed new rules regulating the industry.
Testimony there this week “reinforced the views of experts for both industry and the conservation community that more and better science is needed related to oil and gas emissions,” a press release said.
The CDPHE will contract Colorado State University to conduct the study, which is expected to take years.
