Drilling sites garner little interest


Corey Fisher of Trout Unlimited said that might show there isn’t much interest in new energy development in North Park and that the industry believes the area is an exploration zone.

Despite the lack of interest, the parcels that sold are in sensitive trout habitat, he said.

One parcel straddles the North Platte River and one of its tributaries, while the others are near the headwaters of different tributary streams.

“Development on any of those leases could be problematic,” Fisher said, calling those streams “irreplaceable fisheries.”
