Featured Educational Presentation: Colorado Energy and Carbon Management Commission: Transitions and Opportunities. Our presenter is John Messner, Commissioner, Colorado Energy and Carbon Management Commission.
Presentation Summary: The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) has been renamed the Colorado Energy and Carbon Management Commission (ECMC) and given a new mission. Since 1951, COGCC had regulated oil and gas, including the implementation of SB 19-181, which in 2021 changed the mission of the Agency from “fostering” to “regulating” oil and gas in a manner protective of the public health, safety, welfare, wildlife and the environment.
Effective on July 1, 2023, the Colorado Legislature and Governor changed the name and mission of the Agency to become the Colorado Energy and Carbon Management Commission (ECMC). Presentation will include discussion on new mission, what that means for current mission, and what additional opportunities may be considered. The ECMC continues to regulate oil and gas and now also regulates deep geothermal energy, carbon capture and sequestration as well as natural gas storage operations.
