About the CDP Process
An option provided for by state regulators, the plan provides a wholistic and inclusionary approach to engage stakeholders at all levels including nearby and affected landowners, fire districts, local governments, water districts and state regulators representing the Division of Wildlife, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and others. Unlike permitting energy development one project at a time, a comprehensive drilling plan seeks to permit projects within a defined geographic area.
While this is a time-consuming permitting process, our goal is to prepare and implement a best in class plan that incorporates input and insight from stakeholders.
Mountain View CDP Overview
This producing field in Weld County has helped Colorado become the fifth largest energy producer in the country, providing jobs throughout the area. As our technology continues to improve, we’re recovering more underground resources which is a benefit to the State, the communities, and the mineral rights owners. Working with state regulators, our comprehensive drilling plan will consolidate drilling and production to one operator within the strategic CDP area. When completed and coupled with our reclamation of other wells in the area, our project will reduce the total number of locations in the area by 95%.
Through technological advancements coupled with reclamation of older wells, we can ultimately reduce the surface disturbance in this region by as much as 85%. Currently in the CDP area, 1,012 acres are dedicated to prior energy activity. Under our plan, SRC Energy’s smaller pad sites will use only 150 surface acres and our aim is to reclaim the old surface area reducing the total footprint by as much as 862 acres.
Our identified plan has targeted hundreds of old legacy wells for potential reclamation, which even with our proposal built out, we could reduce the total number of wells in the region by as much as 30%.
Reduced Air Emissions means Improved Air Quality.
Working with a single operator means increased transparency in development schedules and plans as well as conducting orderly, phased and efficient drilling and development.
