Locations in Planning and Permitting

Geothermal Pilot Project

Geothermal energy is a form of renewable energy derived from the heat stored beneath the earth's surface. We are planning on using our industry-leading expertise in drilling and carbon management to work towards Net Zero emissions goals. Oxy is working through the permitting process on a geothermal project in your community. The two-well project requires permits from both the Colorado Energy and Carbon Management Commission (ECMC) and Weld County. The timeline for development is based on obtaining the required permits and drilling rig availability. At this time, we estimate that drilling will start in February of 2025. We commit to keeping you updated throughout the permitting process and providing additional details before beginning construction.

Tulip

We are currently working through the permitting process. Please check click the link to the right for project location and details. 

Cypress

We continue to work through the state and local permitting processes. The Energy and Carbon Management Commission has determined the application to be complete.

Locations Previously Developed

We will soon be conducting work at this existing oil and natural gas location. This temporary work involves using temporary water tanks and other industry equipment to pump water into the existing wells. These operations is currently scheduled to begin in early June 2024 and last two to three weeks. Please call the Response line for additional details about timing and operations near you.
