Civitas Letter & Sample Axis Lease

Civitas recently mailed out letters to residents in the impacted communities. Their letter and a copy of a lease can be found below.

"Claims by opposition groups that mineral rights owners consenting to lease their minerals may be subject to legal liability related to oil and gas operations at the project are patently untrue. See Colorado Revised Statues, § 34-60-116"

Current law - "Specify that a nonconsenting owner is immune from liability for costs arising from spills, releases, damage, or injury resulting from oil and gas operations on the drilling unit."

This statute and addtional statutes can be found here.
