Odor Complaint Response from Crestone
Crestone Peak Resources has notified the Town of two new steps they are taking to evaluate and address reports of odors at the Waste Connections well pad located north of Vista Ridge.
Crestone has installed a chiller at the Waste Connections well pad to reduce the temperature of drilling fluid as it is piped through a recirculation system, reducing the possibility that detectable odors will be produced near the well pad.Air sampling, analysis and mitigation evaluation:
Additionally, Crestone has engaged Scentroid, a world leader in odor detection and mitigation, to conduct on-site air sampling and analysis. The Scentroid team will visit the Waste Connections pad and surrounding areas beginning on July 10 to collect data. The team will employ several assessment technologies, including portable gas analyzers, passive samplers, thermal cameras and field olfactometers, which are portable odor detection and measurement devices. Scentroid will then provide Crestone with any recommended mitigation strategies to improve our operations at Waste Connections and in our upcoming operations at the Pratt well pad.
View a fact sheet below with additional detail on these initiatives. Crestone will share this information with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Erie residents and local media to keep them appropriately informed.
