At the Jan. 22, 2019 City Council meeting, the oil and gas update included information that the construction on the pads and the pipeline were currently on hold.
At the January 22, 2019, Council Meeting, the oil and gas update included information that the construction on the pads and the pipeline were currently on hold due to Broomfield's request that Extraction complete the baseline noise studies on the Northwest A & B Pads and the Livingston Pad before construction continues.
Construction of the Interchange A & B access road and pad is continuing as the collection of noise data in this area is complete. It should be noted that the construction activities associated with the pipeline and the Interchange A & B Pads have been properly permitted. The pipeline does not require a baseline noise study and the baseline noise study for Interchange A & B was completed and submitted to Broomfield previously. As a point of clarification, construction on the Interchange A & B access road and pad and on the pipeline are stopped on an as-needed basis in order for baseline noise data to be collected. If construction continued while the noise monitoring project is being performed, it will impact the sound levels.
Construction on the Livingston Pad, Northwest A & B Pads, United Pad, and the haul road will not begin until Extraction submits the required baseline noise monitoring studies.
Some citizens have reported construction activity at the Livingston Pad yesterday. Per Broomfield's Construction Supervisor in the field, there is currently no construction on the Livingston Pad. There is on-going construction on the permitted Segment 1 of the pipeline.
