SNOW TALK – WORD OF CAUTION YIELD RIGHT-OF-WAY TO SNOW PLOWS. Town of Meeker Public Works personnel have experienced, during past snow seasons, potentially dangerous situations caused by citizens plowing snow from private driveways and parking lots into Town streets leaving snow ridges, which freeze on the roadway. When a snowplow hits frozen ridges on roadways, the snowplowing equipment may hydroplane making it difficult to control the equipment. The Town encourages snow removed from parking lots and driveways be stored on the owner’s property when possible. If snow must be removed to the street, please remove all ridges, leaving the street surface smooth. If an accident results from poor snow removal practices, the person creating the condition may be responsible. The Town further requests that while crews are loading snow onto trucks in the downtown area, that drivers avoid driving in that block if possible. Under State Law, while snow removal equipment is displaying a flashing yellow or blue light and is engaged in snow removal, all other vehicles should exercise due care and caution in approaching and passing such equipment. Any snow removal equipment displaying the yellow or blue flashing light has the right-of-way at all intersections and may not be required to yield the right-of-way to other traffic, as required by the traffic control signs, or comply with other restrictions governing traffic flow. Please use due care by slowing down at each intersection and looking for snow plowing equipment before entering the intersection. Please treat intersections as four way stops if you can’t see clearly both ways due to snow piles or other obstructions. Your safety is important to us! Thank you for your cooperation.

BEFORE THE OIL AND GAS CONSERVATION COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF COLORADO IN THE MATTER OF ALLEGED VIOLATIONS OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE COLORADO OIL AND GAS CONSERVATION COMMISSION BY EXXONMOBIL OIL CORPORATION, RIO BLANCO COUNTY, COLORADO. CAUSE NO. 1V, DOCKET NO. 1011-OV-13. NOTICE OF ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER BY CONSENT HEARING. On July 11, 2007, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (“COGCC” or “Commission”) approved the original Application for Permit-to-Drill (“APD”), submitted by ExxonMobil Oil Corporation (“ExxonMobil”) for the Piceance Creek Unit Well #296-7A7 (API No. 05-103-10825-00) (the “Well”), located in the SE1/4 NE1/4 of Section 7, Township 2 South, Range 96 West, 6th P.M. On July 10, 2008, the original APD expired. On June 2, 2008, prior to the expiration of the original APD, ExxonMobil re-filed an APD for the Well, which was approved by the COGCC on July 30, 2009. On July 27, 2008, between the expiration of the APD, and the approval of the refiled APD, ExxonMobil drilled the Well. COGCC Staff became aware of the issue when the incident was self reported by ExxonMobil. On August 8, 2008, COGCC Staff issued a Notice of Alleged Violation (“NOAV”) (NOAV #200193990) to ExxonMobil for commencing operations on the Well without a valid permit. The NOAV alleged that ExxonMobil had violated Rule 303.a. and required them to explain the reason for the violation and the procedures that would be implemented to prevent future violations. On September 8, 2008, ExxonMobil responded to the NOAV, explaining that the reason for the violation was a lack of diligence in tracking valid APDs. They also submitted a Form 4, Sundry Notice, detailing procedures to be implemented to prevent future violations. These measures included new tracking procedures, and notification to all disciplines that a valid permit is required before commencing operations. Rule 523. specifies a base fine of One Thousand dollars ($1,000) for each day of violation of Rule 303.a. Rule 523.a.(3) specifies that “the maximum penalty for any single violation shall not exceed Ten Thousand dollars ($10,000) regardless of the number of days of such violation,” unless the violation results in significant waste of oil and gas resources, damage to correlative rights, or a significant adverse impact on public health, safety or welfare or the environment. ExxonMobil should be found in violation of Rule 303.a., as described herein, and that the parties have agreed to an adjusted fine of One Thousand, Five Hundred dollars ($1,500), which takes into consideration the mitigation factor that ExxonMobil has demonstrated a history of compliance with COGCC rules, regulations and orders and instituted several new procedures to prevent these types of violations from recurring in their future operations. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission of the State of Colorado, pursuant to the above, has scheduled the above-entitled matter for hearing on: Date: Monday, November 29, 2010, Tuesday, November 30, 2010. Time: 9:00 a.m.; Place: Suite 801, The Chancery Building, 1120 Lincoln Street, Denver, Colorado 80203.

Pursuant to said hearing in the above-entitled matter at the time and place aforesaid, or at any adjourned meeting, the Commission will enter such orders as it deems appropriate to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public and to prevent the waste of oil and gas, either or both, in the operations of said field, and to carry out the purposes of the statute. In accordance with Rule 509., any interested party desiring to protest the granting of the application or to intervene on the application should file with the Commission a written protest or intervention no later than November 24, 2010, briefly stating the basis of the protest or intervention.
