DENVER — Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2017 — Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced the state’s response following a three month review of oil and gas operations. He called for the review after the deadly home explosion in Firestone last April that killed two people and injured a third.

“At the time of the explosion, we committed to do all we could to ensure that what happened to the Martinez and Irwin families never happens again,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “The actions we announced today are a responsible and appropriate response that places public safety first.”

Immediately following the explosion, the Governor ordered the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) to conduct a swift review of flowlines. Industry provided timely information and has shared in the development of these recommended next steps.
