Most Coloradans know that oil and gas production has skyrocketed in Colorado, but a 1975 resource from the Colorado Geological Survey illustrates the industry’s development visually and using statistics. Oil and Gas Fields of Colorado includes two parts: a map, and a book of statistical data. You can see how much the industry has expanded by comparing the 1975 map to a current map courtesy of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. COGCC also has data files to compare with the 1975 statistics.
