Safety

  1. Risk Assessment
  2. Emergency Preparedness

In October 2018, Broomfield contracted with DNV GL USA (DNV-GL) to conduct a risk assessment of Extraction’s well sites:

  • To identify risks and mitigation measures associated with those risks and to qualitatively evaluate the risks;
  • To identify risks associated with recent oil and gas incidents in other parts of Colorado and any additional mitigation measures;
  • To own a professional third party risk assessment associated with a new oil and gas development to use further in policy efforts; and
  • To identify other mitigation measures that should be added to Broomfield’s regulations.

On February 19, 2019, Council held a Study Session to discuss the DNV-GL Risk Assessment.  The memo for that meeting, including the full Risk Assessment Report, can be viewed here.  At the February study session, council requested that DNV-GL address numerous questions in writing.  The questions and written responses from DNV-GL can be viewed here.

On March 22, 2019, a Community Meeting to discuss the DNV-GL risk assessment was held.  The video of the Community Meeting and the presentation from DNV-GL can be viewed here.
