COGCC redesigns website for better public access

Staff reports

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission released a more user-friendly website this week.

The new site,, provides a contemporary look and feel, and it streamlines the organization of large amounts of data and content available to the public.

The agency has streamlined the complaint process, aggregated spill data and converted its water quality data to a downloadable format, according to a news release from COGCC.

The newly designed site also improves search capabilities while maintaining or enhancing all content and functions of the previous site, the release stated.

"We recognize the high public interest in the COGCC, its work and data it maintains," COGCC Director Matt Lepore said in the release. "Our agency has always been among the most transparent in the country in providing access to volumes of information about the regulation of the oil and gas industry in Colorado. With this redesigned website, we've taken another important step in making public information available to all interested parties."

The redesigned site is one of several recent steps to make interaction with the COGCC easier, and is part of an ongoing focus at COGCC to strengthen its regulation of oil and gas development in Colorado.
