Chevron s commitment to environmental stewardship l.jpg
Chevron’s Commitment to Environmental Stewardship

  • Assistance to state agencies as a landowner in responding to Garden Gulch

  • Engagement with Mineral Lessees as the Landowner

  • Stormwater Management Programs

  • Carbon Footprint Assessment, Alternative Energy Opportunities and Resource Conservation

  • Surface Use Location Selection Process for Fee Acreage


Assistance to state agencies l.jpg
Assistance to State Agencies

  • Recent Garden Gulch Activity

    • Worked closely with all regulatory agencies to provide information and access to property

      • No regulatory obligation as landowner

    • Provided CDOW access to conduct water and fish studies and samplings

    • Provided on site access for EPA, CDPHE, CDOW, Garfield County and the Colorado Water Quality Control Commissioners – irrespective of statutory right of access


Stormwater management best management practices bmps l.jpg
Stormwater Management Best Management Practices (BMPs)

  • Controls

    • Workforce training and awareness raising

    • Utilization of stormwater program service providers for construction and inspection

    • Preventing erosion and/or sedimentation with best management practices applications

      • Silt Fence

      • Retention Basins

      • Check Dams

      • Seeding and Mulching

      • Grading/Roughening Techniques

      • Road and driveway surfacing

    • Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure plans for reducing spills and/or consequences


Stormwater management bmps cont l.jpg
Stormwater Management BMPs cont.

  • Emergency Response Plans

  • Methods of handling/disposing of contaminated soils

  • Post Construction Controls

    • Interim period between construction completion and final stabilization of the area

    • Must be inspected once a month


  • Surface use location selection process l.jpg
    Surface Use Location Selection Process

    • The purpose of the process is to make quality land use decisions for the Piceance Development Program.

    • Quality means balancing the environmental and surface use aspects with asset development.

    • Similar processes are employed with mineral lessees on Chevron lands and where Chevron operates on other’s lands.

    • Initial location selection

      • Geologist recommends the pad location & description

    • Area review

      • On-site review and report with aerial photo of any findings

        • Road access

        • Grazing and/or irrigation impacts

        • Pad orientation

    • Drilling and Geology Review

      • Will pad location and orientation work


    Surface use location selection process cont l.jpg
    Surface Use Location Selection Process cont.

    • Formal Review of Site

      • Record issues and mitigation recommendations

        • Disturbed area

        • Access road(s)

        • Visual/noise impacts

        • Grading

        • Rig layout and well slot coordinates

        • Pit liners

        • Production facilities

        • Wildlife habitat and migration

        • T&E species considerations


    Surface use location selection process cont8 l.jpg
    Surface Use Location Selection Process cont.

    • Mitigation Plan/Stakeholder Meeting

      • Determine if process can proceed or if recycle is necessary

    • Land Survey

      • Disturbed area to be identified

    • Detail Pad Design

    • APD/SUP Preparation

    • Construction and Operations Review for Final Pad Design
