Hydraulic fracturing has been a common technique in Colorado oil and gas extraction since the 1970s. Colorado does not track the number of oil and gas wells that use hydraulic fracturing.
FracTracker Data Folder Contents
FracTracker provides state-specific data on issues such as:
- Locations of oil and gas facilities
- Pipelines and processor locations
- Production amount of oil and gas generated
- Amounts of waste generated from oil and gas
The data folders may also contain information on other energy generation locations, data from different years, and data on violations committed by oil and gas facilities. Amount of information and types of information will vary by state. Get data.
More Data Sources
Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission provides data on notices of alleged violations to oil and gas operators, pending permits, approved permits, and the subsurface wells (wells horizontally drilled under the ground) in Colorado.
