Even as state oil and gas regulators mull over new rules for the disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, the Colorado Supreme Court is pondering whether citizen activist groups can intervene on matters like the ultimate frack job in 1969 using a 43-kiloton nuclear bomb.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS -- Marion Wells lives about 10 miles from “ground zero” in Garfield County, the Project Rulison blast site where a 43-kiloton nuclear device was exploded nearly 8,500 feet underground in 1969 in an effort to free up commercially viable natural gas.
Less than a week out, the agenda for a highly anticipated two-day Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission meeting in Glenwood Springs is about as clear as the waste water in a natural gas reserve pit.
A series of key state and county meetings on a variety of controversial natural-gas drilling issues will take place this week and next in...
In the late 1960s and early '70s, four nuclear devices were exploded underground on Colorado's Western Slope in an effort to free up commercially marketable amounts of natural gas from dense sandstone formations.
