What the New Oil and Gas Rules Mean for Us - 12/14/08 11:15 PM
Well nobody knows for sure how these rules are going to effect us in Western Colorado. I think the national economy will play a part in our future, as well. The oil and gas companies are cutting back, but not pulling out at this time. Homes are still projected to appreciate, just not as fast as we have been used to. So basically things are looking to slow down for a little while, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The New Oil and Gas Rules Came Out On Thursday - 12/14/08 11:12 PM
Well, the new rules are out and they were followed by announcements from the local companies that they were scaling back their operations over this coming year. On the flip side, the oil and gas companies are taking this to the State Legislature in the beginning of next year. Also, from what I've been hearing this means no more guaranteed overtime for some of their employees. I have included a link to the new rules and regulations if you want to read them, they are 85 pages long. New Rules for the Oil and Gas Industry, effective 4/1/09 Local Newspaper article (0 comments)
