The Colorado Legislature is Considering a Change that Could Impact SRC Energy

SRC Energy Inc. (NYSE: SRCI), an oil and natural gas company, engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids primarily in the Denver-Julesburg Basin of Colorado.

SRC Energy’s core area of operations is in the Wattenberg Field, a very prolific oil and gas producing area where management has long-term, hands-on experience. The Wattenberg Field is in the Denver-Julesburg Basin (DJ Basin). The DJ Basin is a hydrocarbon-rich area centered in eastern Colorado that extends into southeast Wyoming, western Nebraska and Kansas. Oil and gas have been produced from the DJ Basin since its discovery in 1901.

Colorado is considering legislation that would change the way oil and gas drilling permits are issued. The Senate voted 19-16 to concur on the amendments made to SB19-181 in the House. The bill would change regulations by expanding the authority of local government/communities over drilling sites. The bill also strives to address concerns about climate change, pollution and threat to wildlife from drilling operations to, while protecting the interests of unwilling mineral rights owners.
