Broomfield residents who wanted a public meeting on the latest revision to Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc.’s drilling plan in that city are getting their wish.
Residents will have a chance to make public comments at a special city council meeting 5 p.m. Tuesday at the George DiCiero City and County Building, 1 Descombes Drive.
Broomfield’s operator agreement with Extraction requires that Extraction submit to Broomfield a Comprehensive Drilling Plan, which contains 23 sections on topics ranging from air quality and noise control to emergency preparedness and risk management.
The document provides specific processes and procedures that regulate control measures for the six proposed well pads and the 84 wells allowed under an operator agreement Broomfield signed with Extraction in October.
The Broomfield city manager’s office was expected to administratively approve the latest plan Aug. 1, but public outcry halted that action. The plan is subject to approval by the city manager, and not through a public city council vote, as determined in the operator agreement.
