Breaking RSPN Alliance News – 4/22

Silt, CO — The Antero Rifle Silt New Castle Community Development Plan meeting scheduled for April 27, has been cancelled by Antero, as well as any further public meetings in 2011.

Antero is providing this update as follow up to our notification during our last meeting that we may have to change plans for near term public meetings based on potential lawsuits in the area.

In light of recent litigation filed with regard to Antero’s recent activity on Silt Mesa, Antero has decided it prudent to delay any further public meetings to discuss future development in the Silt Mesa area and we are cancelling the upcoming meeting scheduled for April 27th.

As we advised at the annual meeting on February 9th at Coal Ridge High School, and again at the March 23rd Silt fire station meeting, Antero has an existing undrilled well permit on Silt Mesa that would potentially be drilled in 2011.  We further advised we were looking for alternative sites for this well so as to defer any further near term activity in the heart of Silt Mesa, and as a result of our efforts, we believe we have found an alternate site to meet our near term drilling needs.  As such, and to give time for further discussions between the community and Antero prior to the resumption of activity on Silt Mesa, we no longer anticipate drilling any well originating on a well pad located north of Highway 6 during 2011.

We look forward to providing a further update at our next annual meeting in early 2012 including the potential for resuming a series of discussions on relevant topics regarding a drilling program on Silt Mesa.
