William H Peltier 2 Plug and Abandon Operations &
Maintenance Work at the Coal Creek Site
William H Peltier 2
Crestone Peak Resources has notified the Town of Erie that they will soon begin the task of plugging and abandoning the William H Peltier 2, oil and natural gas well. This location is south of Erie Parkway and east of Green Mill Road.
Starting the week of July 10, 2017, a truck mounted service rig will be on site. A crew will pull tubing out of the well, set permanent plugs, and cement the well per Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) regulations. Once set, the cement casing will be cut-off below surface and a metal plate will be welded into place. Surface equipment that supports this well will be removed as well. The area around the plugged and abandoned wellsite will be reclaimed.
During this activity, an increase in traffic to the location is expected. All access is limited to the designated access road. Equipment you can expect to see during this time includes a truck mounted service rig, crane, various pieces of heavy equipment, water tanks, trucks and worker pickup trucks.
All work will be done during the day, Monday through Saturday. This activity should last approximately two weeks, weather permitting. According to Crestone, seeding the location is weather dependent and will likely be done 30-60 days after all the equipment has been removed.
Crestone has also notified the Town of Erie that they will doing maintenance work a single well on the Coal Creek site, the 31-19, in mid-July. This location is just south of Erie Parkway and west of Montgomery Drive.
This activity will include the use of a truck mounted service rig, temporary water tanks, and worker pickup trucks. All access to this location is limited to the access road. All work will be done during daylight hours. This activity should take about one week to complete.
