President's Message:



I cannot believe we are already closing in on the end of 2019.  We have many things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.  Colorado politicians have only partially shut down Colorado Oil and Gas even though they would like to see us gone completely from the state.  We see mergers all around that affect our members.  My hope is that each of you either find employment at a new company or that you become an integral part of your new company.   This is a time when some become weary of the ups and downs of oil and gas and decide to leave the industry.  My wish is for you to hang tough.  There are always better times ahead. 

Looking back on our accomplishments this year, we had a rig field trip that was a big success.  It had been many years since we last sponsored a rig trip.  Thank you to Caitlyn Coupens, Leslie Collins and their employer, Extraction Oil and Gas for planning and executing the tour.  Their graciousness in accommodating our tour is greatly appreciated.  We held an Escheat and Unclaimed Property seminar that was very well attended.  We had a lot of accountants and land people attend.  Thank you to KPMG, LLC for hosting and teaching the valuable seminar.  NADOA hosted a calculations seminar in Denver at Enerplus Resources.  It was a great class and the attendees enjoyed the interactive class.

Elections are coming up very soon.  If anyone would like to put their name in the hat to serve on the Board or to be on a board committee, please contact Stan Vargas at  The ballots will be going out soon so take time now to write the email.   Serving on the Board is a fun experience.  You get to know other members.  Bringing new ideas and experiences to the Board only helps us grow.

The Joint Holiday Luncheon is coming up in December.  Space is limited so get your reservations in now.  DAPL always hosts a raffle as well as awarding their members with several awards.  DADOA will present the President’s Council Award to a deserving member and a member company.  Be sure to be there.  It could be you or a co-worker!

Thank you for all your support this year.  It has been a busy (and tough) year.  Together we can get through the thick and the thin.  As 2019 comes to a close, I extend my best wishes to all of you.
