Oil and Gas Resources

One of the specialties of the University of Colorado Law School is natural resources law, and the School’s Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment is sponsoring the Intermountain Oil and Gas BMP Project. The Project’s website features a helpful resources page that includes information on oil and gas development, GIS, reclamation, hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), coalbed methane, air and water quality, effects on wildlife and vegetation, and much more. Each topic includes background articles and links on the topic. This website is a great place to start for anyone researching the development, best management practices, and environmental effects of oil and gas in Colorado.
