Innovating to safely produce the energy Colorado needs

As an oil and natural gas company with operations in the Denver Julesburg (DJ) Basin, we are committed to Colorado. Using the latest technology, we are advancing the way we protect the environment and reduce our footprint with the first approved Comprehensive Drilling Plan in Colorado. It includes:

  • Removing 1,800 older vertical wells and associated production facilities
  • Restoring the land for agricultural purposes
  • Increasing efficiency and production with half as many horizontal wells
  • Reducing emissions and truck traffic
  • Scheduling drilling around seasonal crops and wildlife migration

Comprehensive Drilling Plan


We are taking our commitment to safe and responsible development of the energy that fuels Colorado lifestyles to a new level by applying our integrated development plan (IDP) approach to the first Comprehensive Drilling Plan ever approved by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC).

Enriching our communities

Women in energy


The women of Noble Energy play a vital role in delivering the energy we need — as engineers helping drive change, community leaders bettering the lives of Coloradans, and working mothers inspiring today’s young girls to be the innovators of tomorrow.

Reaching higher

Fueling the future


Our industry requires the best and brightest minds. So we’ve developed a program to help students of Denver Public Schools (DPS) and Aims College prepare to become the next generation of scientists, technologists and engineers at Noble Energy.

Supporting STEM education

Partnering for safety


We have a strong commitment to safety and clean air. In fact, regulations and technology that we advocated led to large emissions reductions across the Colorado oil and natural gas industry, even as production increased. The key: advanced infrared camera technology and collaboration with regulators, environmental experts and industry peers.

Improving air quality

Where innovation meets stewardship


Advances in horizontal drilling technology and our newest facilities allow us to safely and efficiently produce more energy with less environmental impact than ever before. We’ve reduced our footprint by 99%, avoided more than half a million truck trips, and utilize sound walls to reduce noise.
