Western Colorado and the Natural Gas Industry
The oil and gas industry makes an enormous contribution to the local economy in the Silt area. Although the industry has been in the area for more than fifty years, a production boom began in the late 1990s that still exists today. The Colorado Oil and Gas Association provides a wealth of industry information on the COGA website.
Information about the rules that govern the oil and gas industry in Colorado are available on the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) website.
