We’re proposing to construct two new natural gas storage wells in the Wolf Creek Storage Field in Colorado.
We appeared before the Pitkin County Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday, March 19, to apply for a drilling permit. The new wells will be drilled within the existing well pad locations and won’t increase the facility’s footprint.
Wolf Creek Storage Field
The Wolf Creek Storage Field is an underground natural gas storage area serving Black Hills Energy customers in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley. Natural gas is gathered in the storage wells during the summer and used during high demand winter months.
We’re committed to providing safe, reliable and affordable energy in a way that protects the environment and the interest of our customers. We'll apply for and obtain all necessary environmental permits required by the regulating entities and will maintain a rigorous environmental protection program throughout the project.
An increase of truck traffic on 4 Mile Road and 300 Road is anticipated during the work, but there should be minimal impact to the public.
