On 22 August, the Colorado Petroleum Council (CPC) released the following statement in response to Governor Hickenlooper’s proposals on industry safety.

The CPC and its members are committed to safe and responsible operations, environmental stewardship and economic prosperity for communities throughout the state.

“The tragic event in Firestone earlier this summer serves to reaffirm the oil and natural gas industry’s long-standing commitment with regulators and emergency officials to never let up on our core value of safety,” said CPC Executive Director, Tracee Bentley. “We are committed to working with the governor and the state over the next several months as we work through these proposals, all the while continuing to deliver the energy that runs our state and our country with the highest possible standards and safety practices."

The Colorado Petroleum Council is a division of API, which represents all segments of America’s oil and natural gas industry. Its more than 625 members produce, process, and distribute most of the nation’s energy. The industry supports 10.3 million US jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of more than 40 million Americans.
