New COGCC director to participate in Energy Summit

LOVELAND — The new director of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission will participate in the Colorado Energy Summit on Thursday, July 18, at the Ranch, 5280 Arena Circle, Suite 100, in Loveland.

Jeff Robbins was appointed director on March 19. He will lead the COGCC in its new responsibilities that came with passage of Senate Bill 181, which changed how safety and energy production are balanced in state law. 

Robbins is an attorney and a partner in Goldman Robbins, Nicholson & Mack PC in Durango. He is also a former county attorney for LaPlata County and worked as a special counsel for several Front Range communities on oil and gas matters. Those  communities include Dacono, Boulder County, Lafayette and Timnath.

Robbins will participate on a panel that will discuss what local governments are doing to implement provisions of SB 181. The session begins at 4 p.m. on the day of the event. Expected to be discussed are emerging best practices for cities and counties as they write new regulations, what hurdles they will encounter, and how energy companies and consumers should engage with local governments seeking greater involvement with energy production regulation.

Sandra Hagen Solin, owner of Capitol Solutions, will moderate the panel. Participating on the panel in addition to Robbins are Cassie Archuleta, air quality program manager for the city of Fort Collins; Bruce Barker, Weld County attorney; and Shaun Sullivan, attorney for the city and county of Broomfield.

The Colorado Energy Summit is an annual BizWest event. Tickets are available here. The event occurs on the same day and at the same venue as Confluence, the Northern Colorado water conference. Tickets for either event are $53.49 or $103.49 for an all-day pass. Discounts are available for purchases of five or more tickets to either event. Those discounted ticket prices are $43.49 each or $83.49 each for all-day passes.
