At Noble Energy, technology and innovation help us protect the environment and find better ways to deliver the energy we all need in Colorado. But we are not alone. With some of the strongest regulations in the country, our state is paving the way for cutting-edge advancements in the development of oil and natural gas that focus heavily on emissions reduction, water protection and conservation, and overall footprint reduction.

Thanks to the innovation and technology behind our Integrated Development Plans — such as horizontal drilling and advanced completion techniques called hydraulic fracturing or fracking — we reduced by 99 percent the amount of surface land needed for energy production and we are removing millions of miles of truck traffic from the roads.

We are also using infrared imaging for leak detection and repair, which is reducing emissions and boosting the efficiency of our operations. And our production facilities use solar-powered telemetry to remotely communicate with our Noble Operations Control Center, where we monitor automated facilities 24/7.

Significant footprint reduction


Long-lateral wells reduce land use, which means we can develop more energy for Colorado with less environmental impact. Learn more about our Integrated Development Plan.

Producing responsibly

Improved air quality


We helped develop the nation’s most progressive air quality regulations for reducing emissions from oil and natural gas facilities. Learn more about our Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) Program.
