Did COGA's Tisha Schuller Lie to the Public about Shutting in all Oil and Gas Wells in the Flood Plain?
You be the judge. Tisha stated numerous times that all oil and gas wells were shut in (closed from producing) in September, yet in October, as indicated below, wells are still being shut in according to Noble Energy. It appears that this was a lie and or, there is a large vacancy in communication with operators and COGA. According to Noble Energy, the industry is still looking for oil and gas wells that were impacted by the flood and turning them off (shutting them in) as they find them.
Todd Hartman of the COGCC said it best: 'We simply could not get to all of the affected oil and gas wellpads because they were under water.' This is precisely how the state and industry has failed. Oil & gas wells should not be placed in areas where you cannot get to them to prevent adverse impacts. YOU HAVE FAILED COGA AND COGCC!
We cannot trust COGA as official COGCC data proves that they are not doing what they say.
