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;
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.
DNV-GL is a global quality assurance and risk management company. The agreement with DNV-GL authorized them to conduct a hazard identification (HAZID) process for the Extraction oil and gas well sites. The final report identifies risks and associated mitigation measures for each risk. Representatives of DNV-GL will be at the February 19, 2019, Study Session at 6 p.m. to present the final report.
