Commissioners Approve Shell Gas Well

Published by at 5:46 am under General Information

The Huerfano County Commissioners have unanimously approved the Shell permit for an exploratory gas well west of La Veta. They reduced the water testing provision recommended by P & Z but did increase the Bonding requirements. Other prev. proposals such as prohibiting gas flaring, conducting seismic survey of faults and providing disclosure of fracking chemicals “before” drilling rather than after, were all ignored by Commissioners as they were also overlooked by P & Z.  The new permit is only for this first exploratory well and any subsequent new drilling activity must again come before the Commission for approval.
