The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission approved PDC Energy Inc.'s Broe Oil and Gas Development Plan (OGDP) permit, according to a press release on June 29.

Initiated by Great Western Petroleum LLC before its acquisition by PDC in May 2022, the permit encompasses 30 wells in Weld County, Colo., and is the company's first OGDP approval on Great Western acreage.

Earlier this month, PDC's Kenosha OGDP was approved also in Weld County, following its Spinney OGDP approval in October 2021. Between the Kenosha and Broe permit approvals, the company added a combined 99 new wells to its inventory this month and is expected to soon have over 675 permits and DUCs.
