Risk Assessment Report Completed
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.  View the Study Session memo, including the risk assessment report  here.
