OIL AND GAS CONSERVATION COMMISSION
OF THE STATE OF COLORADO
PROPOSED UNDERGROUND INJECTION CONTROL PERMIT
PURPOSE OF PUBLIC NOTICE:
The purpose of this notice is to solicit public comment on the Emerald 79X disposal well, a Class II injection permit submitted by Chevron USA Incorporated. The Emerald 79X disposal well will be recompleted from an existing oil well drilled at a location 1212 feet from south line and 1235 feet from east line of Section 26, Township 2 North, Range 103 West, 6th P.M., Rio Blanco County, Colorado.
Class II injection wells are permitted and regulated in such a manner as to prevent the contamination of underground sources of drinking water and to ensure fluid emplacement and confinement within the permitted injection zones. Class II injection wells are permitted to inject waste generated from oil and gas exploratory and production operations. Chevron USA Incorporated has proposed to inject these fluids into the Navajo Formation in the Emerald 79X well through a cased-hole completion at depths of approximately 6,183 to 6,653 feet.
Public comments are encouraged and will be accepted, in writing at the Commission for a period of thirty (30) days after publication of this notice. If any data, information, or arguments submitted during the public comment period appear to raise substantial questions concerning proposed injection well permit, the Director may request that the Commission hold a hearing on the matter.
Additional information on the operation of the proposed injection well may be obtained at the Commission office.
