Detailed outline of work done to apply water to beneficial use: The conditional water
rights were decreed to Applicant’s predecessor, Marathon Oil Company. On December
1, 2004, Applicant acquired additional land and water rights from Shell Frontier Oil &
Gas, Inc. (Shell). The conditional rights together with the water rights obtained from
Shell have been owned and developed as an integral part of the water system to supply
Applicant’s projects and related uses in the North Piceance project area to support natural
gas exploration, drilling and supply projects. Applicant is the lessee of several federal
gas drilling units comprising the North Piceance project area including, but not limited to,
Eureka, Double Willow, Story Gulch, Figure 4, North Parachute and nearby units.
During the diligence period, Applicant drilled and constructed numerous gas wells and
related infrastructure in its North Piceance project area. Applicant spent more that $1.66
billion in direct costs for the drilling and completion of gas wells and their related
infrastructure for the North Piceance project. Applicant has also expended more than $65
million in direct development, construction and operations costs for its North Piceance
project area water system and its related infrastructure that supports Applicant’s gas
exploration and drilling projects in the North Piceance project area. Applicant used
diverted and applied approximately 16 acre feet of water from one of the features of its
water system, the Taylor Reservoir, for use in the drilling and construction of gas wells in
the North Piceance project area. Applicant applied to the Water Court, negotiated with
opposers and secured a decree to establish new sources of industrial water rights in Water
Division 5, Case 03CW309 as a part of the development of a system of water rights in the
Little Hills Spring area to support gas exploration and development in Applicant’s
drilling units. The Little Hill Springs area is near to the conditional water rights.
Applicant incurred substantial fees for engineering services to field locate water
appropriations and prepare legal descriptions including meetings with objectors, site
visits, installing a measuring weir and review of application with objectors and the
Division of Water Resources. Applicant also incurred substantial expenses for legal
services in connection with this application. Applicant applied to the Water Court,
negotiated with opposers and secured a decree adjudicating consumptive use credits and
changing certain irrigation rights historically used on its Stecker Ranch to industrial uses
in Water Division 5, Case 04CW59 to develop an additional and secure source of
industrial water to support its gas exploration and drilling program and its related
infrastructure. Applicant incurred substantial fees for engineering to complete historic
use analyses of irrigation water rights owned on the Stecker Ranch Property including
field inspections, research of historic records, consumptive use calculations, and review
matters with objectors and the Division Engineer’s office. Applicant also incurred
substantial expenses for legal services in connection with this application. Applicant
entered an appearance, opposed and monitored numerous water rights applications by
other water users to protect its water rights, including the Conditional Water Rights, and
has incurred substantial engineering expenses for the review of water supply applications
by other water users, the analysis of alternatives including groundwater and storage
development projects and discussion with other water supply applicant’s consultants in
connection with such activity. Applicant has also incurred substantial legal expenses
related thereto. Applicant engaged engineering consultants for a feasibility analysis and
the development of preliminary plans for the enlargement of Taylor Reservoir (another
feature of Applicant’s water supply system) including yield analyses for enlarging
storage volumes, surveying by Bookcliff Surveying to document exiting conditions and
completed wetlands delineation by Environmental Solutions. Applicant’s engineering
consultants also assisted with the development of a dock system to access the outlet valve
which included the installation of a temporary staff gage to measure reservoir water
levels and acquiring a portable dock system to enable future monitoring. Engineering
review has been also been completed as part of a proposed outlet replacement and dam
improvement project. Applicant applied to the Water Court in Water Division 5, Case
Number 08CW182 to adjudicate a conditional industrial right from a spring known as the
Taylor Creek Spring to support Applicant’s gas exploration and drilling program.
Applicant installed a measuring device for this water source. Applicant incurred
substantial fees for engineering including field measurements of the point of diversion,
water flow estimates, installation of a Parshall flume measuring device and flow
monitoring equipment. Applicant has also incurred substantial legal services in
connection with this application. Applicant engaged engineering consultants to study and
prepare a historic use analysis in preparation for an augmentation and exchange plan for
its Piceance Basin watershed water supplies. Applicant’s consultants have developed
mapping and have researched decrees of water rights obtained by Applicant in the
Piceance Creek watershed. The augmentation and exchange plan involves the analysis of
historic use on multiple properties including the Oldland, Stecker, Johnson, and Greeno
Properties. The augmentation and exchange plan analysis contemplates a determination
of consumptive use, change of water rights to industrial uses, and the approval of a plan
of augmentation and exchange for new and existing water rights in support of industrial
operations. Applicant estimates that it has incurred over $160,000.00 in direct
engineering fees and expenses related to the activities described above. 5. Name(s) and
address(es) of owner(s) or reputed owners of the land upon which any new diversion
or storage structure, or modification to any existing diversion or storage structure is
or will be constructed or upon which water is or will be stored, including any
modification to the existing storage pool: Applicant is the owner of the land where the
diversion structures for Dry Fork Ditch Nos. 1 and 2 are located. WHEREFORE,
Applicant requests that the conditional water rights referenced herein be continued for the
uses heretofore adjudicated.
