Why wasn't I notified about an oil and gas facility that is being developed close to my property?

The Weld County Oil and Gas Location Assessment (WOGLA) process dictates that notice of a proposed oil and gas location be sent out to all building unit owners (residences) within 1,000 feet of the location. If your house is outside the 1,000 foot notification zone, you will not receive a notice of the planned development. Please refer to the Weld Oil and Gas Location Assessment (WOGLA) or Location Assessment for Pipeline (LAP) pages on the left hand side for Weld County Oil & Gas Regulations to read more about the LAP and WOGLA process, including notification requirements.
