The operation is anticipated to take 2 days, beginning on 2/1/21.What is liquid unloading?
Gas well liquid unloading is a procedure, implemented periodically, where liquids that have accumulated in a gas well are removed to surface equipment. The liquids accumulation can include oil, condensate, and water, and may be due to a variety of causes, including decreases in gas velocity in the well, decreases in reservoir pressure, or changing gas to liquid ratios. As liquids accumulate, well production can decline and an operator may choose to unload the liquids from the well to restore gas production. This process may result in emissions of natural gas into the atmosphere, leaks, and/or spills and necessitates submission of this notice.
The COGCC requires well operators to send notification within 48 hours of performing liquids unloading to allow an opportunity to perform a field inspection if needed.More:Contact Kerr McGee at 720-929-6000Visit the Town of Erie interactive Oil and Gas Sites map (most compatible on a desktop)Questions and comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.orgView archive of Oil and Gas notifications
