COGCC listens, gets a pretty good earful on oil and gas issues at Glenwood Springs hearing

Glenwood Springs Post-Independent: The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission brought its ears to Glenwood Springs on Wednesday, but not without some criticism for not allowing extra ears and eyes on its afternoon field tours into the western Garfield County gas patch.

Representatives of several industry watchdog groups criticized the COGCC this week for not allowing the public to tag along on field trips to view natural gas facilities.

“Whenever there’s a quorum of (commission members) gathered, the public should have the opportunity to hear and see what you see,” Leslie Robinson, chair of the Grand Valley Citizens Alliance, said in her comments to commissioners at the Wednesday morning listening session at the Hotel Colorado.
