Oil & Gas Well Design and Permitting

Various locations across the West

Project Size: NA

Project Description:  The Niobrara Shale is a shale rock formation stretching beneath Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and Wyoming.  Oil and Natural Gas can be found deep below the earth’s surface at depths of 3,000 – 14,000 feet.  Companies drill these wells vertically and even horizontally to get at the Oil and Natural Gas in the Niobrara Formation.

Value Added:

CVL successfully initiated and obtained a wavier during the County Commission land use hearing process to permit a monitoring well in the Niobrara Shale Formation in northeastern Colorado. This allowed for immediate drilling of a monitoring well and met the client’s development and production schedules.

CVL has prepared State Well Drilling Permits and associated exhibits for COGCC well permits 2 and 2a for Tebo 32-2 oil and gas well sites. In addition, CVL has prepared “Use by Special Review” (USR) applications and processed approval though County Commission hearings for multiple oil and gas wells in the Niobrara formation.
