ACCESS AND ROADWAYS Laramie Energy, LLC 760 Horizon Drive, Suite 101 Grand Junction, CO 81506 The following narrative and documents address the requirements for the Access and Roadways Standards under Article 7, Division 1 of the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code (LUDC). Laramie is requesting a waiver to Standard 7-107. Access and Roadways. Like many of the historical roadways in Garfield County, Laramie’s private access and roadways were established prior to the Garfield County’s roadway standards. Laramie’s roadways are maintained to provide safe access to sites and are inspected for stormwater compliance. Roadways were designed for oil and gas transportation vehicles and equipment. These roads are not intended for or allow public access. Laramie enforces reduced vehicular speeds and specific safety driving measures. All roads located on the subject parcel are maintained by Laramie to achieve optimal safety, including speed restrictions, regular road maintenance, dust controls, and snow maintenance. The CC 0697-03-07 Pad is located within Laramie’s Cascade Creek oil and gas operations area. The site is located approximately 11.5 miles from the nearest public road, County Road 213. To access the site, vehicles will travel on privately owned and maintained Cascade Creek field access roads. The roads were constructed by the previous operator, OXY USA WTP LP (OXY). OXY pursued land use change permits while as owner and operated of the Cascade Creek field and subject parcel. Garfield County reviewed and accepted a waiver for the Cascade Creek operating field roads in 2015. OXY’s roadway assessment documents, approved by Garfield County, are provided in Standards tab. The Laramie took ownership of the Cascade Creek operations area in 2016. Laramie has continued maintain and improve the roadways located within the Cascade Creek field. D.R. Griffin and Associated (DRG) worked with OXY to design and construct the Cascade Creek Roadway system. DRG’s engineer reviewed OXY’s approved roadway assessment documents and agree with the reports. Garfield County’ Policy 01-14, “Waivers for Roads and Demonstration of Compliance”, states roads must be deemed “safe and adequate” by a Professional Engineer (PE). DRG submitted a PE stamped letter addressing Laramie’s access roads. A PE from Rock Solid Solutions deemed the network of roadways “safe and adequate”. •DRG Letter •Rock Solid Solution Letter •OXY Roadway Assessment Packet GARFIELD COUNTY ROADWAY STANDARDS ASSESSMENT PREPARED FOR OXY USA WTP LP Grand Junction, Colorado PREPARED BY Olsson Associates 760 Horizon Drive, Suite 102 Grand Junction, CO 81506 970-263-7800 January 2015 Olsson Associates Project No. 013-0655 Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 i Table of Contents 1.0 CASCADE CREEK VALLEY ROAD................................................................................... 1 1.1 Scope ....................................................................................................................... 1 1.2 Valley Road .............................................................................................................. 1 1.3 Average Daily Traffic Numbers ................................................................................. 1 1.4 Road Description and Comparison ........................................................................... 1 1.5 Valley Road Best Management Practices ................................................................. 2 1.6 Valley Road Assessment Conclusion ....................................................................... 3 1.7 Valley Road General Approval Standards Narrative (Article Division 107) ................ 3 2.0 CASCADE CREEK MOUNTAIN ROAD ............................................................................. 9 2.1 Scope ....................................................................................................................... 9 2.2 Mountain Road ......................................................................................................... 9 2.3 Average Daily Traffic Numbers ................................................................................. 9 2.4 Road Description and Comparison ........................................................................... 9 2.5 Mountain Road Best Management Practices ...........................................................10 2.6 Mountain Road Best Assessment Conclusion .........................................................11 2.7 Mountain Road – General Approval Standards Narrative (Article 7 Division 107) ....11 3.0 CASCADE CREEK MESA ROAD .................................................................................... 17 3.1 Scope ......................................................................................................................17 3.2 Mesa Road ..............................................................................................................17 3.3 Average Daily Traffic Numbers ................................................................................17 3.4 Road Description and Comparison ..........................................................................17 3.5 Mountain Road Best Management Practices ...........................................................18 3.6 Mountain Road Best Assessment Conclusion .........................................................19 3.7 Access Roads – Genera; Approval Standards Narrative (Article 7 Division 107) .....19 List of Tables Table 1.

The Cascade Creek Valley Road Assessment documents summarize the engineering controls and construction specifications associated with Oxy’s Cascade Creek Operating Area Valley Road which begins at the terminus of County Road 213 and extends to Oxy’s switchback 1 along the Lower Valley Floor Zone. See attached Figure 1 – Overview Map. 1.2 Valley Road Oxy’s Valley Road is a private access road existing on Oxy property to serve Oil and Gas Exploration and Production (E&P) activities. See attached Figure 2 – Valley Road. The Valley Road begins at the terminus of County Road 213 in the NE ¼ of Section 8, Township 7 South, Range 97 West of the 6th PM and terminates approximately 16,051 feet (3.04 miles) north at Oxy’s switchback 1 located in the SW ¼ of Section 21, Township 6 South, Range 97 West of the 6th PM. This roadway follows the Conn Creek drainage, gaining approximately 450 feet in elevation, and ends at a point near the confluence with the Cascade Creek drainage. The Valley Road services approximately 24 well pads and four (4) Facilities (two Compressor Stations, a Central Water Handling Facility, and one Field Office) located in the Lower Valley Floor Zone of Oxy’s Cascade Creek Operational Area. The Valley Road is used to access Oxy’s Mesa Operational area as well. The Valley Road is typical of roads providing access to natural gas production facilities, compressor stations, and Centralized E & P Facilities in Garfield County, Colorado. 1.3 Average Daily Traffic Numbers Oxy collected traffic numbers accessing Oxy’s Cascade Creek field between July 2011 and June 2012. Oxy documented traffic numbers at the Lower Guard Shack, located at the terminus of County Road 213, and at the Upper Guard Shack, located above Mountain Road switchback 6. See Figure 1 for guard shack locations. Oxy’s traffic count found an average of 148 vehicles travel the Valley Road each day. 1.4 Road Description and Comparison Oxy collected average daily traffic numbers accessing their lower guard shack and Oxy property between July 2011 and June 2012. The results of the exercise identified that Oxy had an average of 148 vehicles accessing the Valley roads each day. Based on roadway numbers collected by Oxy, the following table compares Oxy’s Valley Road to the Garfield County Roadway Standards found in Table 7-107 of the LUDC for Rural Access Roads (Table 1 below): Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 2 Table 1.

One section of the road along the entire Valley Road does not meet the Roadway Standards for lane width. This section has a width of 10.5’ per lane. Aside from this short section of road, the rest of the Valley Road meets or exceeds the required 11’ lane width. Due to the terrain and proximity to Cascade Creek, shoulders are constructed between 0 and 6 feet wide along portions of the Valley Road. Ditches are constructed throughout the Valley Road to convey water safely under the road through culverts and to dissipate as planned in Oxy’s Stormwater Management Plan. Due to the terrain of the Valley Road, majority of the ditches within the field do not comply with the required ditch width. All switchbacks along the Valley Road accommodate a minimum turning radius of 80 feet as established by the roadway standards. Oxy’s Valley Road has two roadway sections which do not meet the grade requirements of 12% due to topography in the area. 1.5 Valley Road Best Management Practices Oxy has implemented the following Best Management Practices (BMPs) to aid in providing adequate and safe access where Oxy’s Valley Road does not meet Rural Access Roadway standards.  Limit access from public and only allowing authorized personnel to utilize the road  Speed limit signs of 20 miles per hour or less. Speed limits are enforced by a private contractor throughout Oxy’s Cascade Creek area.  Uphill traffic has the right of way. This aids in reducing the amount of congestion along the roadway and allows for more efficient passage during inclement weather or busy times of the day.  Oxy conducts 14 day stormwater inspections as well as post-precipitation inspections along the entire Mountain Road. These inspections document Mountain Road and stormwater feature condition and document road maintenance issues needed for repair on a regular basis.  Oxy completes regular maintenance of the Valley Road to include grading, snow removal, maintaining stormwater BMPs, and upgrading or improvements to the roadway identified during operation. Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 3  During spring and winter, Oxy requires the use of chains on the Valley Road as a precautionary BMP. Additionally, Oxy maintains a website to allow contractors to monitor current site conditions and road alerts for requiring chains, or closed roads due to weather conditions.  During dry periods and windy events, Oxy completes dust suppression using water and chemical suppressant (i.e. magnesium chloride) spreading to ensure safe visibility is not impaired during wind events. Details on dust controls are provided in Oxy’s Dust Management Plan, located in the Standards Tab. 1.6 Valley Road Assessment Conclusion Given the on-going construction and maintenance activities completed by DIA Construction, BMP implementation and maintenance completed by DIA Construction and McIntyre Construction, and vehicle traffic volumes, Oxy has provided safe and adequate access to Oxy’s employees and contractors utilizing the Valley Road. 1.7 Valley Road General Approval Standards Narrative (Article Division 107) 1.7.1 Introduction The following section addresses the requirements for the General Approval Standards under Article 7, Division 107 of the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code (LUDC). 1.7.2 Access to Public Right-of-Way All lots and parcels shall have legal and physical access to a public right-of-way.

Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 9 2.0 CASCADE CREEK MOUNTAIN ROAD 2.1 Scope According to the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code (LUDC) Section 7-107 – Access and Roadways, all roads are required to be designed to provide “adequate and safe access” and reviewed by the designated County Engineer. The Cascade Creek Mountain Road Assessment documents summarize the engineering controls and construction specifications associated with Oxy’s Cascade Creek Operating Area Mountain Road which begins below Oxy’s switchback 1 and travels up the Talus and Escarpment Zones to Oxy’s switchback 6, see Figure 1.– Overview Map. 2.2 Mountain Road Oxy’s Mountain Road is a private access road existing on Oxy property to serve Oil and Gas Exploration and Production activities, see Figure 1. Oxy’s Mountain Road begins southwest of Oxy’s switchback 1 in the SW ¼ of Section 20, Township 6 South, Range 97 West of the 6 th PM and terminates northeast of switchback 6 in the SE ¼ of Section 21, Township 6 South, Range 97 West, 6th PM. The Mountain Road is approximately 19,958 feet (3.78 miles) long and traverses the Talus Zone and Escarpment Zone with an elevation change of approximately 2,000 feet to access Oxy’s Mesa operational area within the Plateau Zone. The Mountain Road allows for the service of currently 32 well pads, six water storage facilities, and one storage area within Oxy’s Mesa operational area. This roadway is typical of roads traversing the Talus and Escarpment Zones providing access to natural gas production facilities and Centralized Exploration and Production Facilities within the Plateau Zones located in Garfield County, Colorado. 2.3 Average Daily Traffic Numbers Oxy collected traffic numbers accessing Oxy’s Cascade Creek field between July 2011 and June 2012. Oxy documented traffic numbers at the Lower Guard Shack, located at the terminus of County Road 213, and at the Upper Guard Shack, located above Mountain Road switchback 6, see Figure 1 for guard shack locations. Oxy’s traffic count found an average of 120 vehicles travel the Mountain Road each day. 2.4 Road Description and Comparison The following table compares Oxy’s Mountain Road to the Garfield County Roadway Standards found in Table 7-107 of the LUDC for Rural Access Roads (Table 3 below): Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 10 Table 3. Table 7-107 of the LUDC for Rural Access Roads – Mountain Road Table 7-107: Roadway Standards Design Standards Rural Access Road Mountain Road Design Capacity (ADT) 101-200 120 Minimum ROW Width (Feet) 50 N/A Lane Width (Feet) 11 9.9 to >12 Shoulder Width (Feet) 4, 2 min. paved 0 – 20 Ditch Width (Feet) 6 1 – 4 Cross Slope 2% chip/seal, 3% gravel 2% Shoulder Slope 5% 2% Design Speed n/a n/a Minimum Radius (Feet) 80 52, 54, and >80 Maximum % Grade 12% 5 – 13% Surface Gravel Native Material/Gravel Based on the 2011 and 2012 roadway numbers collected by Oxy, the Average Daily Traffic (ADT) for the Mountain Road is expected to be approximately 120 vehicles per day. Oxy’s Mountain Road is located on private property and therefore is not located within a ROW. One section of the road along the entire Mountain Road does not meet the Roadway Standards for lane width. This section has a width of 9.9’ per lane. Aside from this short section of road, the rest of the Mountain Road meets or exceeds the req uired 11’ lane width. Due to the topography along the mountain road, the shoulder width along the road ranges from 0 – 20 feet. Although not found on the entire Mountain Road, shoulder sections are found along portions of the Mountain Road ensuring the roadway does not become congested within sections of the road. Based on terrain of the road, ditches are constructed on the inside lane of the entire Mountain Road to manage stormwater on the roadway. These ditches convey the stormwater into culverts which pass under Oxy’s Mountain Road and dissipate down the hillside. Two of the six switchbacks as part of Oxy’s Mountain Road do not accommodate a minimum turning radius of 80 feet as required by the Rural Access Roadway Standards. These locations are Oxy’s switchback 2 with a turning radius of 52’ and Oxy’s switchback 6 with a turning radius of 54’. Oxy’s Mountain Road grade ranges from 5% to 13%, as compared to the Rural Access Roadway standard requiring a maximum grade of 12%. Within the Mountain Road, only one roadway section does not meet the grade requirements of the Rural Access Roadway Standards. 2.5 Mountain Road Best Management Practices Oxy has implemented the following Best Management Practices (BMPs) to aid in providing adequate and safe access where Oxy’s Mountain Road does not meet Secondary Access Roadway standards. The following signage is posted along the Mountain Road:  Limit access from public and only allowing authorized personnel to utilize the road  Speed limit signs of 20 miles per hour or less. Speed limits are enforced by a private contractor throughout Oxy’s Cascade Creek area.  Switchback number signage to aid in roadway identification  Uphill traffic has the right of way. This aids in reducing the amount of congestion along the roadway and allows for more efficient passage during inclement weather or busy times of the day. Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 11  Through most of the Mountain Road, Oxy has installed Jersey barriers or Hesco barriers along the outside edge of the road to aid in safe passage. These sections of barriers are mainly installed through less visible, narrow, or steep sections of road. The entire road is not edged with barriers to allow for snow removal and blading operations to have adequate locations for snow and gravel storage.  Oxy conducts 14 day stormwater inspections as well as post-precipitation inspections along the entire Mountain Road. These inspections document Mountain Road and stormwater feature condition and document road maintenance issues needed for repair on a regular basis.  Oxy completes regular maintenance of the Mountain Road to include grading, snow removal, maintaining stormwater BMPs, and upgrading or improvements to the roadway identified during operation.  During spring and winter, Oxy requires the use of chains on the Mountain Road as a precautionary BMP. Additionally, Oxy maintains a website to allow contractors to monitor current site conditions and road alerts for requiring chains, or closed roads due to weather conditions.  During dry periods and windy events, Oxy completes dust suppression using water and chemical suppressant (i.e. magnesium chloride) spreading to ensure safe visibility is not impaired during wind events. Details on dust controls are provided in Oxy’s Dust Management Plan, located in the 604-12-13 Storage Site and 697-16-16 Storage Site submittal. 2.6 Mountain Road Best Assessment Conclusion Given the on-going construction and maintenance activities completed by DIA Construction, BMP implementation and maintenance completed by DIA Construction and McIntyre Construction, and vehicle traffic volumes, Oxy has provided safe and adequate access to Oxy’s employees and contractors utilizing the Mountain Road. 2.7 Mountain Road – General Approval Standards Narrative (Article 7 Division 107) 2.7.1 Introduction The following section addresses the requirements for the General Approval Standards under Article 7, Division 107 of the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code (LUDC). 2.7.2 Access to Public Right-of-Way All lots and parcels shall have legal and physical access to a public right-of-way.

The Cascade Creek Mesa Road Assessment documents summarize the engineering controls and construction specifications associated with Oxy’s Cascade Creek Operating Area Mesa Road which begins at Oxy’s switchback 6 and travels the Plateau Zone to Oxy’s 604-12-13 Storage Site and 697-16-16 Storage Site, see Figure 1– Overview Map. 3.2 Mesa Road Oxy’s Mesa Road is a private access road existing on Oxy property to serve Oil and Gas Exploration and Production activities, see Figure 1. Oxy’s Mesa Road begins northeast of switchback 6 in the SE ¼ of Section 21, Township 6 South, Range 97 West, 6th PM and terminates at the entrance of the 604-12-13 Storage Site and 697-16-16 Storage Site facility located in the NE ¼ of the SE ¼ of Section 4, Township 6 South, Range 97 West, 6th PM. The Mesa Road is approximately 43,010 feet (8.15 miles) long and traverses the Plateau Zone to access the site. The Mesa Road allows for the service of currently 38 well pads, six water storage facilities, and one storage area within Oxy’s Mesa operational area. This roadway is typical of roads traversing the Plateau Zone providing access to natural gas production facilities and Centralized Exploration and Production Facilities within the Plateau Zone located in Garfield County, Colorado. 3.3 Average Daily Traffic Numbers Oxy collected traffic numbers accessing Oxy’s Cascade Creek field between July 2011 and June 2012. Oxy documented traffic numbers at the Lower Guard Shack, located at the terminus of County Road 213, and at the Upper Guard Shack, located above Mountain Road switchback 6, see Figure 1 for guard shack locations. Oxy’s traffic count found an average of 120 vehicles travel the Mesa Road each day. 3.4 Road Description and Comparison The following table compares Oxy’s Mesa Road to the Garfield County Roadway Standards found in Table 7-107 of the LUDC for Rural Access Roads (Table 3 below): Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 18 Table 5.

Oxy’s Mesa Road is located on private property and therefore is not located within a ROW. Four sections along the entire Mesa Road do not meet the Roadway Standards for lane width. Aside from these short sections of road, the rest of the Mesa Road meets or exceeds the required 11’ lane width. Due to the topography along the Mesa Road, the shoulder width along the road ranges from 0 – 10 feet. Although not found on the entire Mesa Road, shoulder sections are found along portions of the Mesa Road ensuring the roadway does not become congested within sections of the road. Based on terrain of the road, ditches are constructed on at least one side of the Mesa Road to manage stormwater on the roadway. These ditches convey the stormwater into culverts which dissipate stormwater away from the roadway. All switchbacks associated with the Mesa Road access to 604-12-13 Storage Site and 697-16-16 Storage Site accommodate a minimum turning radius of 80 feet as required by the Rural Access Roadway Standards. Except for five sections, Oxy’s Mountain Road grade meets the maximum grade requirement of Rural Access roads of 12%. 3.5 Mountain Road Best Management Practices Oxy has implemented the following Best Management Practices (BMPs) to aid in providing adequate and safe access where Oxy’s Mesa Road does not meet Secondary Access Roadway standards:  Limit access from public and only allowing authorized personnel to utilize the road  Speed limit signs of 20 miles per hour or less. Speed limits are enforced by a private contractor throughout Oxy’s Cascade Creek area.  Uphill traffic has the right of way. This aids in reducing the amount of congestion along the roadway and allows for more efficient passage during inclement weather or busy times of the day.  Oxy conducts 14 day stormwater inspections as well as post-precipitation inspections along the entire Mesa Road. These inspections document Mesa Road and stormwater feature condition and document road maintenance issues needed for repair on a regular basis. Garfield County Roadway Standards Assessment Oxy USA WTP LP 013-0655 January 2015 19  Oxy completes regular maintenance of the Mesa Road to include grading, snow removal, maintaining stormwater BMPs, and upgrading or improvements to the roadway identified during operation.  During spring and winter, Oxy requires the use of chains on the Mesa Road as a precautionary BMP. Additionally, Oxy maintains a website to allow contractors to monitor current site conditions and road alerts for requiring chains, or closed roads due to weather conditions.  During dry periods and windy events, Oxy completes dust suppression using water and chemical suppressant (i.e. magnesium chloride) spreading to ensure safe visibility is not impaired during wind events. Details on dust controls are provided in Oxy’s Dust Management Plan, located in the 604-12-13 Storage Site and 697-16-16 Storage Site submittal. 3.6 Mountain Road Best Assessment Conclusion Given the on-going construction and maintenance activities completed by DIA Construction, BMP implementation and maintenance completed by DIA Construction and McIntyre Construction, and vehicle traffic volumes, Oxy has provided safe and adequate access to Oxy’s employees and contractors utilizing the Mesa Road. 3.7 Access Roads – Genera; Approval Standards Narrative (Article 7 Division 107) 3.7.1 Introduction The following section addresses the requirements for the General Approval Standards under Article 7, Division 107 of the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code (LUDC). 3.7.2 Access to Public Right-of-Way All lots and parcels shall have legal and physical access to a public right-of-way.

While Laramie Energy engages professional contractors and drilling contractors and relies upon their expertise and their own, published, Emergency and Safety Plans, it is essential for all Laramie Energy personnel and associates to know what to do in the event of an emergency in order to minimize danger. Purpose The purpose of this emergency action plan is to provide employees and contractors working at Laramie Energy sites with emergency procedures and phone numbers for local emergency response agencies that should be contacted in the event of an emergency at a Laramie Energy work site. This Emergency Action Plan may be published independently from the Safety Plan as needed. Requirements (per 29 CFR 1910.38(c)) • Means of reporting fires and other emergencies – Laramie employees must use any means possible to contact emergency services if necessary. Cell phones, company radios, land lines and satellite phones may be used to accomplish this goal. In offices, the manual fire alarm may be pulled. All fires and incidents must be reported to the appropriate supervisor and safety department as soon as possible. • Evacuation procedures and emergency escape route assignments – written procedures and route assignments are available for larger facilities and offices. In occupied offices, you must close your door as you exit your office. A floor warden will ensure that the office floor is completely evacuated and will be the last employee to vacate the office area. Evacuation of smaller sites, such as well pad locations must be addressed during a project pre-job meeting. • Procedures for employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate – Laramie employees will initiate shutdown procedures per facility in the event of an emergency evacuation. Laramie employees will be expected to evacuate when the signal is given. • Accounting for all employees after an emergency evacuation has been completed – the supervisor on site (or most senior employee if the supervisor is not present) will be responsible to account for all employees and contractors on site during an evacuation to ensure that everyone has safely evacuated. • Rescue and medical duties for employees performing them – Employees will be expected to perform rescue and medical duties to the level in which they were trained. Employees will be expected to not perform above their training level. • Names or job titles of persons who can be contacted: 2 Ownership OWNER RESPONSIBLE PARTY Laramie Energy, LLC 1401 Seventeenth St. Suite 1400 Denver, Colorado 80202 Office: 303-339-4400 Fax: 303-339-4399 Robert S.

Safety and Health Training VII. Specific Safety and Health Programs VIII. Revision History In general, it is Laramie Energy’s belief that: • The safety of people is more important than any property or business objective. • All workplace accidents can be prevented through proper training, planning and preparation. • Safe behavior while at work is a condition of employment. • Safety is the responsibility of all employees and contractors. Everyone should strive to improve the safety of the workplace. Laramie Energy uses professional contractors and consultants for many exploration and production related operations including: • Surveying; • Well pad, road and pipeline construction; • Well drilling, well completion and well work over activities; • Transporting produced fluids; and • Maintenance activities. By engaging these contractors and consultants to provide their professional services, Laramie Energy thereby relies upon their specific expertise, and their own Health and Safety Plans and employee training procedures to address their activities. However, it is essential that all of the Company’s personnel and associates conduct their activities in a manner that is consistent with the general safety policies established by the Company and in accordance with the Health and Safety Program and Procedures described in this plan. General Safety Policies All employees or contractors of Laramie Energy are required to perform their assigned duties in accordance with the following general safety policies: 5 1. Laramie Energy requires all employees and contractors to be fully trained and knowledgeable of their assigned duties. This includes all applicable requirements for safety, health and environmental protection associated with the full scope of the Employee’s work. 2. Any work task that potentially may expose an employee (s) to hazardous materials will be conducted only after developing a site-specific Health and Safety Plan (HASP) per OSHA requirements. 3.

B. Maintain floors and stairs in a clean and dry condition (so far as possible). If a spill occurs, clean it up immediately or warn others and report it so that it can be cleaned up. C. All trip hazards must be eliminated. Common hazards include unsecured rugs, cords in walking areas, and projecting electrical outlet boxes. 15 D. Step stools, if equipped with wheels, should have an automatically locking base or wheel locks. Inspect to ensure all parts are secure and safety features, such as wheel locks and anti-slip treads, are intact and properly functioning. E. Ladders 1. Ladders will be selected for the work intended. 2. Make sure the ladder is the proper height for the job. Extension ladders will be at least 3 feet taller than the point of support and stepladders will be selected so that the worker is never required to use the top two steps. 3. Inspect ladders before use. Defective ladders will not be used. Some signs of defects include: broken rungs, split side rails, worn or broken safety feet, broken hinges and spreaders, loose nuts, bolds and/or rivets. If defective, remove ladder from service and place a warning tag reading on it “DO NOT USE.” 4. When using a straight ladder, place feet on a firm surface and secure it at the top so that it cannot slide sideways. 5. Always face the ladder when climbing or descending. Use both hands – never carry anything in your hands. You have climbed too high if your knees are above the top of the ladder or you cannot maintain a handhold on the ladder. 6. There should only be one person on a ladder at a time unless designed for multiple users. 7. Do not use metal ladders if there is a possibility of contact with electrical conductors. 8. Never use a stepladder as a straight ladder. 9. Do not use stepladders as a brace or support for a work platform or a plank. 10. Never lean from the side of a ladder. If necessary, the task will be evaluated for potential fall hazards. Other alternative solutions will be used to allow a safe approach to the task. F. Stairs, ramps and walkways will be clear and in good condition. Always use the handrail provided when ascending or descending stairs. G. Employees will be cautioned to watch for holes, concrete dividers, curbs, discarded items, paper and other tripping hazards. H. During cold weather, employees will be cautioned about icy conditions on walkways and parking lots. 16 I. Floors holes and openings will be protected by a cover or standard railing. Should the cover or railing need to be removed, the floor opening or hole will be constantly attended by an attendant assigned to warn others of the hazard. J. Open-sided floors or platforms that are four or more feet above ground level will be provided with proper standard railing. When there is equipment that could fall from these elevations, the installation of a standard toe board is required. K. Scaffolds – there are several different types of scaffolds. Access to elevated locations or work at heights requires guardrails, fall protection, or a personal fall arrest system device. Employees will be cautioned that if the work cannot be performed from the ground or by another available means, the following general requirements for scaffolding must be met: 1. Scaffolds will be used only when work cannot be performed from the ground or from solid construction. 2. Footing or anchorage for scaffolds will be sound, rigid, and capable or carrying the intended load without settling or displacement. Unstable objects, including barrels, boxes, loose bricks or concrete blocks, will not be used to support scaffolds or planks. The use of base plates and mudsills is acceptable. 3. Access to the scaffold must be provided by a ladder, ramp, or other safe means. Never use the side frames to access the scaffold. 4. Scaffolds must be fully planked. The planks will not extend less than six inches and not more than 18 inches from the end. 5. Scaffolds will not be used during storms, high wind, or when covered by ice or snow. 6. Scaffolds, over 10 feet from ground level, must have standards guardrails, toe boards, and will be properly cross-braced. 7. Mobile ladder stands and scaffolds will have positive wheel and/or swivel lock casters to prevent movement. VI. Revision History The table below lists all changes made to this section since the implementation of the program: 17 Section 6 HAZARD COMMUNICATION I. Purpose It is Laramie Energy’s policy to comply with the requirements of OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) and the UN Globally Harmonization System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) and to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals are properly evaluated and that the information is available to all personnel in the workplace. II. Scope This program applies to all work operations where there is exposure to hazardous chemicals that are known to be present in the workplace in such a manner that employees may be exposed under normal conditions or use in a foreseeable emergency. The mere presence of a hazardous chemical in the workplace does not trigger coverage under the HCS. There must be actual or potential exposure to an employee. Consumer products are not covered by this program to the extent that the use of the products results in a duration and frequency of exposure that is not greater than that which could be reasonably experienced by consumers. III. Responsibilities A. Safety Department – to be responsible for implementing program, training employees on requirements and hazards, and provide training documentation upon request. B. Operations Management – a. To hold contractors accountable for providing Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for each hazardous material they bring onto a Company site and the containers in which chemicals are brought on location to comply with all applicable DOT regulations and labeling requirements. b. To identify chemical hazards and to communicate chemical hazard information to onsite employees and to evaluate and provide appropriate PPE for the job. C. Employees – to ensure that all recommended and appropriate precautions specified on the SDS and by the onsite supervisor are implemented and adhered to when working with hazardous chemicals. D. Contractors – to provide SDS’s for each hazardous material they bring onto company property and have all containers labelled to meet all regulations and to ensure that training is conducted for all their employees as specified in 29CFR 1910.1200. IV. Procedure A. Common hazardous chemicals a. A list will be maintained of all hazardous chemicals used in the field and updated as necessary. 18 b. This list will identify the corresponding Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for each chemical. B. Safety Data Sheets a. A copy of a SDS for every substance on the list of hazardous chemicals in the field will be maintained. b. SDS’s for all hazardous chemicals used in the field will be readily accessible to employees at all times. c. If a hazardous chemical is ordered and/or used, the order is to include a request for the SDS. All SDS’s will be reviewed for content and completeness. d. SDS’s of new substances to be purchased must be reviewed and the chemical approved for use by a manager or designee. Whenever possible, the least hazardous substance will be obtained. C. Warning Labels a. All containers of hazardous chemicals will be properly labelled. b. All labels will identify the hazardous chemical and the appropriate hazard warning, including the target organ effects. c. Each label will be checked with the corresponding SDS to verify the information. d. Alternate labeling provisions, such as tags or markings, may be made for containers that are of unusual shape or size and do not easily accommodate a legible label. e. Chemicals that are transferred from a properly labeled container to a portable container, and that are intended only for the immediate use of the person who performs the transfer are not required to be labeled. Immediate use is defined in 29 CFR 1910.1200. D. Training a. Each employee who is potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals will receive training as outlined below. b. New employees will receive training on the contents of this program and specific training on the chemicals that the individual will be directly working with during orientation and prior to performing work where exposure may occur. c. Additional training will be provided for employees whenever a new chemical is introduced into their work area. d. As warranted, training may be provided based on the uniqueness of the hazards to be encountered at a worksite. e. The training program will emphasize the following elements: i. A summary of the Hazardous Communication Standard and the written program; ii. Hazardous chemical properties, including visual appearance and odor, and methods that can be used to detect the presence or release of hazardous chemicals; 19 iii. Physical and health hazards associated with potential exposure to hazardous chemicals; iv. Procedures to protect against hazards, such as personal protective equipment, work practices, and emergency procedures; v. Hazardous chemical spill and leak procedures; and, vi. Location of SDSs, how to understand their content, and how employees may obtain and use appropriate hazard information. E. Contractors a. Outside contractors will be advised of any chemical hazards that may be encountered in the normal course of their work. b. Outside contractors will be notified of the location and availability of SDSs. c. Each contractor bringing chemicals on-site must provide the appropriate hazard information, including SDSs. All containers of hazardous chemicals brought on- site by an outside contractor must be properly labeled. F. Non-routine tasks – if a non-routine task is planned, affected employees must be informed of any chemical hazards associated with the performance of the task(s) and appropriate measures before such work is initiated. V. Revision History The table below lists all changes made to this section since the implementation of the program: 20 Section 7 CONTROL OF HAZARDOUS ENERGY SOURCES I. Purpose The purpose of this program is to protect against the inadvertent or unintended release of energy, movement, or flow in electrical, mechanical, or material systems, which could result in injury to workers. Lockout of these systems must be utilized, where needed, to safely allow entrance into or close contact with equipment. These procedures will be used to ensure that machines or equipment being attended to are isolated from all potentially hazardous energy and locked out before employees perform any activity where unexpected energizing, start up, or release of stored energy could cause injury. II. Scope All employees will comply with the requirements of this program. Only authorized employees may apply locks and tags and only in accordance with this program. Compliance with 29 CFR 1910.147, 1910.269, and 1910.333 will be adhered to at all times. III. Definitions Affected employee. An employee whose job requires him or her to operate or use a machine or equipment on which servicing or maintenance is being performed under LOTO or whose job requires him or her to work in an area in which such servicing or maintenance is being performed. Affected or authorized employees may disable, shut down, or turn off machines or equipment. Affected employees are not authorized to lock or tag out systems or equipment. Authorized employee. A person who locks out or tags out machines or equipment in order to perform servicing or maintenance on that machine or equipment, which has a source(s) of energy that can cause injury. Furthermore, any employee who implements a lockout or tagout procedural element on machines or equipment (for servicing or maintenance purposes) is considered an authorized employee. This includes employees who: perform energy isolation, implement LOTO, dissipate stored energy, verify energy isolation, implement actions to release LOTO, and test or position machines or equipment. Capable of being locked out. An energy isolating device is capable of being locked out if it has a hap or other means of attachment to which, or through which, a lock can be affixed, or it has a locking mechanism built into it. Other energy isolating devices are capable of being locked out, if lockout can be achieved without the need to dismantle, rebuild, or replace the energy- isolating device or permanently alter its energy control capability. Energized. Connected to an energy source or containing residual or stored energy. Conductors and parts of electrical equipment that have been de-energized, but have not been locked and tagged out in accordance with 1910.333, must be treated as energized parts. Conductors and 21 parts of electrical equipment that have been de-energized under procedures other than those required by 1910.269 must be treated as energized. Energy Isolation Device. A mechanical device that physically prevents the transmission or release of energy, including but not limited to manually operated circuit breakers, disconnect switches, line valves, block and any other similar devices. Push buttons, selector switches and other control circuits are not acceptable as energy isolation devices. Lockout Device. A device that utilizes a positive means, such as a key and lock, to hold an energy isolating device in a safe position and prevent the energizing of a machine or equipment. Each lockout device will be supplied with a tag meeting the requirements of 1910.147 and 1910.333 and identifying the lock user and the date of application. Servicing or Maintenance. Workplace activities, such as constructing, installing, setting up, adjusting, and inspecting machines or equipment. These activities include lubrication, cleaning, or un-jamming machines or equipment and making adjustments. They may also include non- exempt tool changes when the employee may be exposed to the unexpected energization, start-up, or release of hazardous energy. Tagout Device. A prominent warning device, such as a tag, and a means of attachment, that can be securely fastened to an energy isolating device in accordance with an established procedure to indicate that the energy isolating device and the equipment being controlled may not be operated until the tagout device is removed. If an item is capable of being locked out, it must be. IV. Responsibilities A. Responsible managers will ensure: a. Implementation of the program within the field operations. b. Employees are trained on program and specific procedures where needed. c. Adequate resources are provided to support the program. B. Employees (including authorized and affected) are responsible for: a. Attending training and demonstrating proficiency where appropriate. b. Following the program and procedures and incorporating their requirements into the work tasks. c. Informing the company when hazards or inadequacies are found. d. Ensuring designated contractors have a program in place, adhere to the program, and have had training. e. Ensure that all needed equipment and supplies are ready and available. f. Ensure that appropriate documentation is completed. g. Participate in periodic inspections of the program when requested to do so. 22 V. Procedures All work involving isolation of hazardous energy will be done in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.147 – The control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout). A. Preparation for Lockout/Tagout. Before working on, repairing, adjusting or replacing machinery and equipment, the following procedures will be utilized to place the machinery and equipment in a neutral or zero mechanical state. Before authorized or affected employees turn off a machine or piece of equipment, the authorized employee will have knowledge of the type and magnitude of the energy, the hazards of the energy to be controlled, and the means to control the energy. If there is any question about how to implement a lockout/tagout it should be reviewed with the production manager. B. Notification of Employees. Affected employees shall be notified by the authorized employee of the application and removal of lockout/tagout devices, and the prohibition regarding attempts to restart or reenergize equipment which is locked/tagged out. C. Preparation for Shutdown. Affected employees should assist the authorized employees before shutting down equipment, such that the authorized employees shall know the types, magnitude and hazards of the energy to be controlled along with the methods to control the energy. D. Shutting down the equipment. An orderly shutdown must be utilized to avoid any additional or increased hazards to employees. Established equipment shutdown procedures for the machine or equipment should be followed to turn off or shut down the machine. E. Equipment isolation. All energy isolating devices that are needed to control the energy shall be physically located and operated as appropriate, to isolate the equipment from the energy source. F. Applying the Lockout/Tagout Device. Lockout/Tagout devices shall be affixed to each energy isolating device by an authorized employee. A lock and/or tag shall be affixed to the energy isolation device. For clarification purposes, this means that if the energy isolation device is capable of being “locked”, then a lock and tag will be affixed. If an energy isolation cannot be locked, then a tag only will be affixed – but must be treated as equal integrity as a lock. No lock shall be affixed without a tag stating who locked out the equipment, the reason for the lockout/tagout, the date, and the appropriate warning tag, such as “Danger Do Not Operate”. Where a tag cannot be affixed directly to the energy isolating device, the tag shall be located as closely and safely possible to the device, in a position that will be immediately obvious to anyone attempting to operate the equipment. Where tagout devices are used with energy isolating devices designed with the capability of being locked, the tag attachment shall be fastened at the same point at which the lock would have been attached. 23 G. Releasing Stored or Residual Energy. All potentially hazardous stored or residual energy shall be relieved, disconnected, restrained and equipment otherwise rendered safe. Stored energy (capacitors, springs, elevated members, rotating flywheels, and hydraulic/gas/air/steam systems) must be relieved or restrained by grounding, repositioning, blocking, and/or bleeding the system. If there is a possibility of re- accumulation of this energy, the verification of isolation must be continued until the job is complete of the possibility of accumulation no longer exists. H. Verifying Isolation (try out). The authorized employee shall verify that isolation and de- energization of the equipment has been accomplished prior to starting work on the locked or tagged out equipment. After ensuring that no personnel are exposed, operate/test (try out) the starting mechanism to make certain the equipment will not operate by following the normal startup procedures (depress start button, etc.) NOTE: Be certain to return the switch or START button, which was used to test the lockout, to its OFF or NEUTRAL position. At the beginning of each shift, or after any substantial absence from the job (breaks or meals), any person who has equipment locked out will check the equipment and the disconnecting device to determine and verify that all equipment is still safe for work and has not been returned to service during their absence. I. Release from Lockout/Tagout. Before energy is restored to the equipment the following steps shall be completed by the authorized employee: a. Assure that the equipment is ready to be energized and operated. The authorized employee should ensure that all nonessential items have been removed and the equipment is operationally intact (i.e. machine guards). b. Notify all affected employees that LOTO devices are being removed and ensure that all employees are in a safe position, away from the equipment and that they are to remain clear of the equipment while it is being re-energized. Re-energize the machine according to the associated procedure. Verify the machine is operating normally and safely before allowing a resumption of work in the machine’s vicinity. If the authorized employee is unavailable, the following necessary steps are required: c. Obtain approval of the Production Manager or designee for removal of lockout/tagout devices after completing the Lock Removal Form. d. Confirm that the authorized employee is not at the facility/location and unavailable to remove his or her personal lockout/tagout device. Confirm that the lockout/tagout is no longer required. Make a reasonable effort to contact the authorized employee whose lockout/tagout device is on the equipment that his or her LOTO device is to be removed. Remove the lockout/tagout device using bolt cutters or equivalent means. 24 e. Notify the authorized employee, whose lockout/tagout device has been removed, of the removal of his or her LOTO device before he or she returns to work at the facility/location. VI. Additional Guidelines A. Personal Lockout/Tagout. When only a few isolation devices need LOTO and/or only a few personnel are involved with the LOTO, then in most cases a lockbox is not needed for LOTO. In personal LOTO, each authorized employee will place his or her lock and/or tag on the energy isolation device and utilize a tracking form for documentation. The authorized employee makes the decision on which method is most appropriate. B. Group Lockout/Tagout. Each contract company must designate the primary authorized employee to conduct the verification process and ascertain the exposure status of individual group members and take the steps needed to afford the employees in their crew, craft, department or group the level of protection equivalent to that provided by the implementation of personal LOTO devices. Each authorized employee has the right, and must be given the opportunity to participate in the verification process and apply their LOTO device should they so decide. *Note: if the contracting company has a more stringent LOTO program, it’s program may be followed. C. Tagout. Devices shall warn against hazardous conditions if the machine or equipment is energized. Tags may say “Do Not Start”, “Do Not Open”, “Do Not Close”, “Do Not Energize”, “Do Not Operate”, etc. Long term isolations or Out of Service tags may also be applied where appropriate. The primary authorized employee will decide which tag(s) will be used. D. Extended Lockout/Tagout. When equipment needs to be locked and/or tagged out for more than one work shift or workday, these LOTO’s must be communicated to personnel and contractors at the location/facility. If other employees are assigned to work on the affected equipment during this period, they will add their lockout/tagout devices and remove them upon completion of their tasks. E. Exclusive Control. Where the equipment or system is under the exclusive control of the employee (i.e. some pigging operations, orifice plate changes, dropping soap sticks, etc.), LOTO may not be needed. Under this exemption, a worker must be in physical control of all energy sources that may create a hazard and provide a safe level of control. F. Contractors. When it becomes necessary for a contractor to perform LOTO, the contractor will inform the Laramie representative of the LOTO plan and procedure and receive approval for the job. It will be at this time that the Laramie representative will determine if a Laramie representative will need to be present during the LOTO activity being performed. When performing group LOTO, all contractors must provide their own personal locks and tags. G. Shift or Personnel Changes. Employees involved in LOTO will ensure the continuity of lockout/tagout protection, including provision for the orderly transfer of lockout/tagout 25 device protection between off-going and oncoming employees. This is required to minimize exposure to the hazards from the unexpected energization or startup of the machine or equipment, or release of stored energy. VI.

Terminates the entry and cancels the permit when the entry operations specified by the permit have been completed or when a condition not allowed under the entry permit arises in or near the permit space. (Note: Entries conducted under permitted conditions will require a minimum of three personnel: entry supervisor, entrant, and attendant plus provisions for rescue and emergency services personnel.) V. Procedures A. General. Laramie prohibits employees from entering permit spaces without the written approval of a manager. This includes permit spaces that have been reclassified or are being entered under alternative procedures as specified in 1910.146(c)(5)(ii) and (c)(7). The final determination of whether a confined space is a permit-required confined space shall be made by the employee who will be the entrant with the concurrence of their manager. If entry must take place, the guidelines below shall be employed. B. Entry Requirements. No entry will be permitted unless all the provisions of the 1910.146 standard have been met and the safety department has been consulted. Only employees who are trained in confined space entry and are medically fit to wear the necessary personal protective equipment may enter permit-required confined spaces. C. Evaluations. The Safety Department will conduct an initial evaluation on any known confined spaces and place these spaces into the Confined Space Inventory with a determination of permit requirements. In the event that a space needs to have entry (i.e. tank cleaning, valve repair, internal inspections, etc.), an additional evaluation will be completed by a trained person prior to entry.

Attention must be paid to whether a personal fall restraint system (PFRS) or a personal fall arrest system (PFAS) is needed. 1. A fall restraint system prevents an employee from falling any distance at all. The anchor of a fall restraint system is not called upon to withstand the force of an arrested fall, it only has to withstand the force of restraining a worker from moving further than the length of the lanyard. The anchor point must support a 3,000 pound load or have a safety factor of two. 2. A fall protection system arrests a person’s fall. 3. Fall restraint is preferred over fall arrest. C. Fall Prevention a. Fall prevention systems must always be used as the primary method of working safety at heights. If fall prevention systems are not practical, then fall protection systems must be used. Fall prevention consists of using engineered or administrative controls. b. Examples of fall prevention systems include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Guardrails with midrails and toe boards; 2. Ladder cages; 3. Warning line systems six feet from the edge; 4. Controlled access zones; 5. Covers for holes in floors, roofs, and other walking/working surfaces; and, 6. Spotters and monitors. D. Fall Protection a. If a fall prevention system cannot be used, fall hazards can be controlled by implementing fall protection systems. b. Workers must be protected from fall hazards where the worker could fall 4 feet or more or falling less than 4 feet onto dangerous equipment. 36 c. Where the worker will be within 6 feet or less from a fall hazard (typically a horizontal distance), identify the appropriate means of protection (i.e., netting, scaffolding, 100% tie-off, or other fall arrest means). d. 100% tie-off is required when working in man lifts or powered platforms using a harness and lanyard with a deceleration device. e. Fall protection is not required when personnel are working on permanent ramps, runways, work platforms, other walkways, or tank landings equipped with top rails, midrails, and toe boards. f. Tether tools or secure them with other means to prevent objects from falling. E. Equipment Selection a. Select components for PFAS/PFRS in accordance with current ANSI requirements. b.

Revision History The table below lists all changes made to this section since the implementation of the program: 44 Section 13 HYDROGEN SULFIDE I. Purpose The purpose of the Hydrogen Sulfide program is to provide guidance to Laramie Energy employees and contractors for safe work around facilities with varying levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and to ensure that information about the dangers of this toxic gas are known by all affected personnel, and to ensure that proper controls are in place to mitigate the hazards associated with H2S. II. Scope H2S is a flammable, acidic, and toxic gas that is present at many petroleum exploration and production sites as a component of crude oil, natural gas, produced water, and condensate. This program provides an awareness of the protective measures that are required when working around H2S as well as the physical properties, symptoms of exposure, and associated hazards. Laramie expects all personnel accessing a site where the potential for H2S exposure exists to be aware of the properties and hazards associated with H2S gas. III. Definitions Ceiling - A ceiling is an exposure limit that is not to be exceeded at any time during a workday. Exposure is typically monitored using a direct-reading devise with an alarm to give an instant indication. Exposure limit - An exposure limit is the maximum permitted employee and contractor exposure level in company workplaces for the time period listed. Four types of exposure limits exist based on potential exposure time. They are as follows: Exposure type Exposure time Exposure Limit (ppmv) Ceiling Instant 15 TWA 8 8 hours 10 TW10 10 hours 7 TW12 12 hours 5 45 Time-Weighted Average - Airborne concentration of a substance as an average over a specified time period, which is generally given after the acronym (e.g., in TWA8, the specified time is 8 hours). Immediately Dangerous Any atmosphere where the concentration of oxygen, flammable, To Life or Health (IDLH) - or toxic air contaminants would cause a person without respirator protection to be fatally injured or cause irreversible and incapacitating effects to that person’s health. IV. Responsibilities A. Safety department is responsible for developing, communicating, evaluating, maintaining, and improving this program. They will also be responsible for making the program available to employees and contractors when needed and providing appropriate training materials and system tools. B. Managers are responsible for implementing this practice, making aware when changes or updates to the program are needed and, ensuring that all personnel under their authority, inclusive of contractor personnel, are adequately trained and knowledgeable in the fundamentals of the H2S program to a level reflective of their individual responsibility within the program. C. Employees and contractors are responsible for following the H2S program and incorporating its requirements into all associated work. V. Procedures A. Associated Hazards a. Iron sulfide (FeS) – A pyrophoric material that is the byproduct of H2S reacting with carbon steel, such as in a pipeline or equipment. Typically, this material is a gray powder, but may be attached to rust particles making it difficult to distinguish from rust or other gas pipeline material. It will self-ignite when dried and exposed to air. Control measures include continually wetting it or covering it with another material, such as soil or lime, so as to separate it from the air. b. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) – A gas that results from the combustion of H2S. This material is almost always present at the tip of an active flare particularly in sour gas areas. It distributes readily in air such that if it is released from an elevated area, it will rarely sink to ground level. SO2 gas reacts with mucus membranes of the eyes and nose to form sulfuric acid. The resulting irritation rarely enables an individual to remain exposed to the gas for a significant period of time. The ACGIH short-term exposure limit (STEL) for SO2 is 0.25 ppm. The OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) is 5 ppm. 46 c. Carbon disulfide (CS2) – A yellow, sweet (or potentially very foul) smelling liquid sometimes found with condensate or other pipeline liquids. Typical routes of exposures are vapor inhalation and skin absorption. Overexposure may cause various neural effects – the material is also a reproductive toxin. The PEL of CS2 is 20 ppm. d. Internal pipeline or equipment corrosion – Condensed liquids (water) combined with H2S – contaminated gas in the presence of very little oxygen or carbon dioxide will result in severe corrosion to carbon steel over time and can lead to a containment failure. This corrosion type is characterized by pitting. e. Sulfide stress cracking (SSC) – The failure of steel caused by the simultaneous action of stress and hydrogen absorbed from corrosion by H2S in water. This failure will typically occur near welds or other potential areas of metal stress and will lead to a breach of containment. B. Identifying and testing H2S sources Identify and document all areas where greater than 10 ppm sources of H2S gas exists. Such areas must be listed by the maximum level of H2S in stream or vapor space, whichever is greater. Production facilities must be monitored following the addition of new well flow. H2S concentrations shall be determined for both liquid hydrocarbon oil and produced water tanks. H2S can be generated by biological activity. The potential is present in areas containing frac or flowback water (tanks, pits) or at water treatment facilities. These areas must be tested and documented as well. Risks of H2S generation by biological agents can be controlled by actively monitoring flowback water quality and by using biocides as the need indicates. Measure H2S using direct reading instruments, colorimetric tubes, or stream analysis. Retest areas with H2S concentrations greater than 50 ppm at least annually. Conduct the tests when the maximum H2S concentration would be expected, such as during the warmer months of the year. Follow confined space entry procedures when testing cellars, bellholes, or any other confined spaces. Areas where concentrations of H2S are known or suspected to exceed 10 ppm in the breathing zone or 100 ppm in the vapor space will need to comply with respiratory protection requirements. C. Warning signs and access control Included below are the minimum standards for H2S signage and access control. State and local jurisdictions may have different or more stringent requirements and should be referenced in conjunction with this program. 47 To warn both employees and the public of H2S hazard, install or provide signs or labels to be readable at a distance of 50 feet. The signs should read Caution Poison Gas at: • The normal access point to a facility in which process or production equipment contain greater than 100 ppm H2S. • On roads which provide direct access to any facility handling H2S gas with 100 ppm or greater concentration. In addition, • Signs reading Respiratory Protection Required Beyond this Point shall be included in areas where greater than 10 ppm measured in the breathing zone has been demonstrated to exist under normal maintenance or operations (such as tank gauging) and Wind socks or other suitable wind direction indicators will be provided at the following locations: • Plant sites where the 100 ppm radius of exposure is 50 feet or greater; • Tank batteries where concentrations of H2S exceeding 100 ppm are present in the vapor space of stock tanks; and, • Compressor facilities where concentrations of H2S exceeds 100 ppm in the gas stream. D. Respiratory protection All personnel assigned to work in operations where the workplace breathing zone concentrations of H2S have been demonstrated to exceed the occupational exposure limit (OEL) of 10 ppm shall have access to respiratory protection. Personnel shall be trained in the selection, use, inspection, and maintenance of equipment; must undergo a medical evaluation; and be fit tested. At a minimum, PPE will be: • Self-contained, positive pressure breathing equipment (SCBA) • Positive pressure, air-line breathing equipment with an auxiliary self-contained air supply (minimum 5 minute rated) for emergency egress use only. The use of respiratory equipment is mandatory in areas measuring 10 ppm H2S or greater in the breathing zone or when gauging or opening equipment containing 100 ppm H2S measured in the vapor space. Where H2S is likely to be present in compressors or piping, test the area before beginning work. This is particularly important when working below grade in pits, vaults, or excavations due to their heavier nature of H2S relative to other gases and the tendency of it to settle in low lying areas. When possible, residual gas containing H2S should be allowed to dissipate over time. 48 Emergency respiratory protection must be provided at manned locations where H2S in concentrations greater than 100 ppm is known to exist in the gas stream. Such protection may be provided in other situations and circumstances as determined by risk or the authority having jurisdiction (i.e. BLM). Emergency respirators must undergo a documented monthly inspection. Personnel who may be required to don respiratory protection in an emergency situation cannot have facial hair that interferes with the seal of the respirator mask. Well drilling operations occurring in or near a zone known to contain H2S may be subject to additional requirements. E. Monitoring and detection Personal monitoring refers to portable quantitative equipment that is worn within the breathing zone (i.e. within one foot of the face). Personal monitors are designed to provide fast and reliable warnings against hazardous concentrations of H2S. Such monitors must have an audible and vibrating alarms set at 10 ppm and a concentration readout on the unit. Personal H2S monitors shall be used in the following situations: • In areas of limited dilution ventilation where no fixed detection is provided and the concentration of H2S could exceed 10 ppm in the breathing zone. • During activities which may release H2S into the atmosphere in the immediate work area. If an alarm activates on a personal H2S monitor, workers shall evacuate in a direction that is perpendicular to that of the wind. When possible, work in known or suspected H2S areas should occur downwind of personnel. Fixed monitoring refers to quantitative detection or monitoring equipment that continuously measures the concentration of H2S in ambient air. The sensors are normally connected to a central controller and alarm system that is activated upon detection of an H2S concentration. Fixed monitoring may be installed under these conditions: • In the work area of a manned facility where there is a possibility for the accumulation of H2S in concentrations greater than 10 ppm. • In manned areas where the material contained in piping and equipment is of sufficient H2S concentration (gas treaters and other H2S processing equipment) that would result in large areas of potential employee exposures exceeding 10 ppm if a release occurred. • At a minimum, at all unmanned facilities where the 100 ppm radius of exposure is greater than 3,000 feet or includes a dwelling, public place, or public road (state and local regulations may have additional requirements) 49 If a high alarm activates, personnel shall immediately move upwind and crosswind from the area. If re-entry to the area is deemed necessary to investigate and correct the cause, personnel shall don respiratory protective equipment and monitor their personal H2S detector during re-entry. The worker shall not re-enter the area if the concentration exceeds 100 ppm until a second worker arrives. The stand-by worker, equipped with an SCBA, shall maintain audible or visual contact with the first worker and be prepared to perform rescue if required. When an alarm activates at an unmanned facility, personnel responsible for the facility shall be notified of the alarm condition. It shall be his or her responsibility to assess the situation and either control the source of the release or activate the Emergency Response Plan for the facility. F. Risk assessment and controls For sites where the potential for H2S to occur in production, storage, transportation, or processing, the risk of release shall be evaluated and controlled as determined through a risk assessment process. Risks may be addressed by using any of the following methods individually or in combination: Engineering Controls – automatic shutoff valves or equipment shutdowns actuated by fixed H2S monitors, fencing and site entry controls where H2S concentrations exceed 100 ppm, and automatic tank gauges Administrative Controls – signage and windsocks, training of appropriate personnel, Emergency Response Plans or H2S Contingency Plans, standard operating procedures Personal Protective Equipment – Personal H2S monitors with alarms, Supplied air respirators or SCBA. G. Well Drilling and Completions Where drilling and completions operations are in effect or planned to be, precautions must be taken to ensure operations are safe when working around H2S or the potential for H2S. Personnel must adhere to regulations including, but not limited to: a. COGCC Rule 607 b. BLM Onshore Order 6 c. API RP 49 (API conditions I, II, and III) H. Emergency Response In the event of an H2S release or high alarm, personnel must evacuate upwind and crosswind if possible and comply with existing escape routes if designated. Personnel should use appropriate escape equipment if available. VI. Training 50 A. Training shall occur upon initial assignment, when conditions change to the level that additional or refresher training is deemed necessary, or when a worker demonstrates that their lack of knowledge or understanding would indicate refresher training is needed. B. The H2S training agenda and content shall adhere to the requirements set forth in ANSI Z390.1: a. Hazards, characteristics and properties of H2S. b. Sources of H2S. c. Proper use of H2S detection methods used. d. Recognition of and proper response to warning signals for H2S release. e. Symptoms of H2S exposure. f. Emergency rescue response safety precautions. g. Wind direction awareness and routes of egress. h. Operation of respiratory equipment and practice in its use, including restrictions regarding facial hair. i. Basic first aid and CPR procedures as they relate to H2S exposures. j. Corrosion effects on metals. k. Contingency planning. C. Managers and supervisors responsible for operations with potential H2S exposure will have current H2S training. D. Contractors working in areas where H2S is present at greater than 10 ppm shall provide current documentation of their employee H2S training and respirator fit testing and be advised of location safety and emergency procedures. E. If it can be avoided, visitors must stay away from H2S locations. But, if it cannot be avoided, at sites that have concentrations of 100 ppm or greater, they shall be accompanied by a trained employee with an H2S monitor and be briefed on: a. Site specific sources of H2S b. Routes of egress and muster points in case of alarm c. Alarm signals and meaning d. Hazards and health effects of H2S VII. Recordkeeping A. Site H2S measurement results will be kept by the company and distributed as necessary. B. Employee respiratory protection training and fit testing documentation shall be maintained by the company. Medical evaluations will be kept in compliance with local, state and federal standards. 51 VIII.

Purpose This section provides a summary of Laramie Energy’s Hot Work Permit program. It applies to employees and contractors at all facilities owned and operated by Laramie Energy. All hot work will be conducted in accordance with this Hot Work program. II. Scope The purpose of this section is to ensure employees and contractors safely manage hazards involved with hot work. This section complies with all regulatory requirements including 29CFR 1910.252(a). This will: • Cover welding, cutting, brazing, burning, grinding or other forms of hot work that can produce a spark or flame in an area or on equipment, which contains or has the potential to contain flammable or hazardous materials; • Create and maintain a safe work environment for any work that may create an ignition source in a potentially hazardous work environment; • Set minimum standards for hot work that must be supplemented with separate procedures at the site as required by local conditions or special situations; • Prevent the accidental ignition of explosive, flammable, or combustible materials by ensuring that flammable or combustible materials are absent, isolated, protected, or removed from the work areas within which any type of hot work will be conducted; • Prevent unnecessary exposure of personnel to the potential hazards associated with hot work, thereby mitigating the risk of potential injury or damage to the assets; and • Define an Authorized Permit Writer, describe their role and responsibilities, and recognize requirement of an authorized contractor performing the work to also sign the permit. This program requires that all Hot Work Permits be signed by an authorized Laramie Energy representative and an authorized contractor representative. III. Definitions Hazardous location A location or area where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to the presence of flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings. Hot Work A work activity or operation that can produce enough heat from flame, sparks, or other sources of ignition with sufficient energy to cause the ignition of fires or explosions from flammable vapors, gases, liquids, or dust. This will include but is not limited to: 55 • Welding, cutting, grinding, brazing, burning, soldering, heating, drilling, riveting, air gouging, chipping and all open flames; • Use of any AC or DC powered tool or electrical equipment that is not intrinsically safe; and • Introducing internal combustion engines/sources within a potentially hazardous area. Hot Work Permit Area Areas that are near any potential hydrocarbon or flammable vapor or liquid source (e.g. wellheads, process vessels, storage tanks or bullets, vents, PSVs and drains) and combustible materials. Authorized Permit Writer An employee or person working under contract to Laramie Energy who: • Has been designated by management and is trained and competent to perform the hot work writing and • Is directed by Laramie Energy to oversee contractors on Laramie Energy locations. IV. Responsibilities Managers Responsible for implementation of program, providing adequate resources to support this program, and approving, in writing, any hot work to be conducted in areas where the measured LEL cannot be mitigated to less than 10%. Safety Staff Responsible for implementing program, providing training and resources for program, and reviewing permits upon completion. Authorized Permit Writer Responsibilities include: • Ensure that atmospheric testing is conducted as required on the Hot Work Permit (continuous or intermittent). • Inspect the job site and ensure that compliance requirements on Hot Work Permit are met. • Provide appropriate isolation methods as indicated on the permit (lock out/tag out, etc.). • Ensure barriers cover or seal all openings in floors (e.g. drains and sewers), walls or ducts within 35 feet of work as required. • Ensure fireproof welding blanket, curtain, pads, water fog or other protection necessary to contain ignition sources from combustible or 56 flammable materials and nearby equipment is available and utilized as required. • Ensure proper ventilation, as required. • Ensure fire watch personnel are trained and properly equipped. • Conduct a JSA with all involved personnel including Laramie Energy employees and contractors working in the area or that may be affected by the hot work. • Inspect the work site and adjacent area 30 minutes after the work is completed (one hour in Colorado). • Ensure a copy of the Hot Work Permit is turned into Safety Department for review and filing. Ensure the hot work has been completed and the area is returned to routine operations. • Review the Hot Work Permit with operations personnel, pumper, lead or manager. • Stop any operations that may conflict with the permitted work. Instruct all personnel to stop work if a change occurs that may create a hazardous or unsafe condition. • Verify within 35 feet of work: floors have been swept clean, combustible floors kept wet, combustible materials relocated or protected, combustible or explosive atmospheres have been eliminated. • Make sure the Hot Work Permit has been filled out completely. • Obtain proper signatures on permit including those performing the work and the fire watch, as required. • Issue the Hot Work Permit only after all site preparation has been completed, relevant personnel have been notified and the permit is signed by both Laramie representative and contractor representative. • Conduct follow-up testing as required and after any interruptions or breaks of more than one hour. • Remain at the work site until the first arc, spark or ignition source is created. • Ability to transfer authority to another Authorized Permit Writer. Fire Watch The fire watch shall be required during welding, cutting, brazing, grinding and other flame-producing activities. Fire watch personnel must be properly trained on the Hot Work program and on the use of fire extinguishing equipment. Fire watch responsibilities include: • Have the fire extinguishing equipment readily available (minimum 20-lb of Type ABC). This does not include site fire protection equipment. • Attempt to extinguish fires within the obvious capacity of the equipment; otherwise, sound the alarm. 57 • Assess conditions during the hot work and for at least 30 minutes after completion of the work (one hour in Colorado). • Stop work if sparks, flame, slag or heat moves beyond the permitted area. • Alert any personnel entering the permitted area of existing hazards. • Be properly trained in Emergency Response Plans and Procedures. V. Procedures a. Preliminary Requirements. Every hot work job has unique hazards. All precautions must be made to provide a safe work environment prior to commencing work. Before beginning any hot work, the following situations and requirements must be considered: • A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is required to be completed before issuing a Hot Work Permit and communicating the job scope to all affected personnel. The contractor performing the hot work may use their JSA to communicate these hazards. • Local government restrictions may supersede this practice (e.g. fire restrictions or burn bans). • Special precautions must be taken to avoid accidental operation of automatic fire detection/suppression systems and fire eyes. • Fire prevention and protection for the Hot Work Permit requires that a minimum of at least one 20-lb dry chemical fire extinguisher shall be available in the immediate area during welding or cutting operations. This fire extinguisher is in addition to the general fire protection equipment on site. In addition, one should consider first protecting combustibles from ignition before commencing hot work or requiring a Hot Work Permit by: • Considering alternative methods to the hot work (where practical); • Moving the work to a location that is free from combustibles; • If the work cannot be moved, moving the combustibles to a safe distance or having the combustibles properly shielded or protected against ignition; or • Scheduling hot work so that operations that could expose combustibles to ignition are not started. b. Conditions Restricting Work. Hot work will not be permitted in the following situations: • In confined spaces without following the requirements of the Confined Space Program; • In the presence of an explosive atmosphere; • In areas near storage of large quantities of exposed, readily ignitable materials; • Where ignition can be caused by heat conduction; or • On used containers, such as drums and tanks, unless properly cleaned. 58 • When work is not started within one hour or the hot work is delayed or suspended for more than one hour, a retest of the LEL and oxygen is required. The permit may be voided and a new one issued in this case at the Authorized Permit Writer’s discretion. c. Requirements. The three primary types of hot work may or may not require a Hot Work Permit as discussed in the following sections. 1. Cutting, welding, grinding, brazing, and open flames. These are the most critical hot work activities that have a potential for creating a fire or explosion. A Hot Work Permit and a Fire Watch shall be required when: • Combustible or flammable materials are closer than 35 feet or further if conditions warrant; • Combustible or flammable materials are more than 35 feet away but are easily ignited by sparks; • Wall or floor openings within 35 feet of exposed combustible material in adjacent areas (e.g. concealed spaces in walls or floors). • Combustible or flammable materials are adjacent to the opposite side of partitions, walls, ceilings, or roofs and are likely to be ignited; and • When welding or cutting is performed on locations where a fire might develop. 2. Non-intrinsically safe/electrical equipment. Fixed or portable (non-intrinsically safe) non-classified electrical equipment should be used at a safe distance. Where flammable gas vapor may be present, atmospheric testing is required. In this case, atmospheric testing may be done without the use of a Hot Work Permit if a risk assessment has been completed and standard operating procedures are used. A fire watch is not required in these situations. 3. Combustion engines and external sources. Combustion engines that are temporarily positioned in areas where flammable gas vapor may be present require atmospheric testing and may require a Hot Work Permit. Individuals must document atmospheric testing results. Internal combustion engines including vehicles that operate within 10 feet of a classified area shall require notification to Laramie employee or designee, but not a permit: transit, snow removal, routine well servicing, delivery of parts and materials, and manned well servicing operations such as coiled tubing units, slickline units, boom cranes, etc. Other vehicle usage situations may require a risk assessment or other means to ensure safe usage of the vehicle within a classified area or hot work permit area. External combustion sources, such as temporary heaters and flares, also may introduce hazards related to contact with open flames. For external combustion sources where a flammable gas vapor may be present, atmospheric testing is required and a Hot Work 59 Permit may be required. The atmospheric testing results must be documented. A fire watch is not required in this situation. d. Permitting. A JSA must be completed and a Hot Work Permit shall be obtained before starting any work that may involve a source of ignition and is within 50 feet of a potential hydrocarbon or flammable vapor, liquid source, or combustible materials. The permit shall be in writing and should include the following: • The fire prevention/protection requirements and special precautions that must be implemented before commencing the hot work; • The type of work (welding, grinding, electric tools, etc.), the object on which the hot work is to be performed, and the date and permit expiration; • The person initiating the Hot Work Permit, who must be designated and trained and must be an Authorized Permit Writer. • Atmospheric testing for lower explosive limit (LEL) and oxygen monitoring including if monitoring was intermittent or continuous; • Fire Watch requirements; • Personal Protective Equipment requirements; • Isolation requirements and methods where applicable (e.g. purging, blinding, double block & bleed, energy isolation, flushing, and ventilation); and • Signatures by both the Laramie Energy representative and the contracting company’s representative. The following are also required for hot work permitting: • The Hot Work Permit is to be issued at the physical job site where the work is to be performed. • Hot Work Permits are approved for only one shift (12 hours maximum). A new permit must be issued for a new shift. • All affected personnel shall be notified of the Hot Work. • A change in conditions making continuation of the hot work hazardous voids the permit (STOP WORK) and a new permit must be issued. • A change in the make-up of the crew performing the hot work (welder, fire watch, helpers, etc. who are directly involved in the hot work) requires that the new member of the hot work team be properly oriented on the aspects of the hot work process. A JSA must be reviewed/completed by this person before commencing the hot work. The new member will also sign the hot work permit. e. Atmospheric testing during hot work. Atmospheric testing shall be conducted for any Hot Work. Monitoring for toxic substances should be based on the information from the JSA. In addition, the following must be completed for atmospheric testing: 60 • Atmospheric gas testing shall be conducted in the presence of the work group. • Continuous and intermittent atmospheric monitoring for LEL and oxygen may be required as deemed necessary by the Authorized Permit Writer and will be indicated on the Hot Work Permit. • If the LEL consistently reads 10 percent or higher, hot work must stop and the source of flammable atmosphere identified and eliminated or controlled before work resumes. If the LEL cannot be mitigated below 10 percent, an attachment to the Hot Work Permit will be written that details procedures for controlling the ignition source. The procedures shall be approved in writing by the manager responsible for the work. • Oxygen tests results must be between 19.5 and 23.5 percent. • It is the permit issuer’s responsibility to ensure the gas detection equipment being used is appropriate and calibrated before use. • Fixed gas detection shall not be used for the gas checks or continuous monitoring. VI. Training Awareness level, Fire Watch and Authorized Permit Writer training will be conducted as applicable for all personnel whose work assignments may involve hot work and may include the following topics: • Fire extinguisher operation, • Hot work program and permit, • Fire protection, • Atmospheric gas monitor operation, maintenance and calibration, • Emergency Response Plans and Procedures, • Job Safety Analysis, • Lockout/Tagout and hazardous energy isolation, • Hazardous communication (SDS), • Hydrogen Sulfide awareness, and • Confined space (applicable to the job). Refresher training will be provided whenever ignition or flammable hazards in the workplace change significantly or an evaluation of the program reveals inadequacies in the worker’s knowledge of the program. VII. Recordkeeping The Hot Work Permit must be kept on location for the duration of the hot work activity. Completed Hot Work Permits will be kept on file with the safety department. A sample of these permits will be kept for 12 consecutive months for program review. VIII.

Appendices (pre-trip checklist) Industrial Trucks and Heavy Equipment The most common type of heavy equipment used by Laramie Energy is for road or well pad construction and maintenance activities or for over the road hauling. While earth-moving and over-the-road trucks are excluded from the provisions of 29 CFR 1910.178, all types of heavy equipment that are covered by these regulations must comply. In general, Laramie Energy requires that all personnel and contractors who operate equipment must be properly trained and have the required certification/license to operate heavy equipment including: industrial trucks, skid loaders, bulldozers, back hoes, forklifts, dump trucks, front-end loaders, motor graders, or cranes. All heavy equipment must have a warning horn, whistle, gong, or other device which can be clearly heard above the normal noise in the area where operated. Before using these vehicles, check that the brakes on each industrial truck are capable of bringing the vehicle to a complete and safe stop when fully loaded. The parking brake must effectively prevent the vehicle from moving when unattended. 63 Section 17 POWER AND HAND TOOLS POWER AND HAND TOOLS I. Purpose II. Scope III. Definitions IV. Responsibilities V. Procedures a. OSHA and NEC compliance b. Maintenance c. Safety shut offs d. Guards e. Cords/GFCI VI. Training VII. Revision History Tool Maintenance Faulty or improperly used hand tools are a safety hazard. All workers shall be responsible for ensuring that tools and equipment (both company and operator-owned) used by them or other workers at their workplace are in good condition and properly maintained as required by 29 CFR 1910.242. Hand tools must be reconditioned or replaced as necessary. Broken or fractured handles on hammers, shovels, axes and similar equipment must be replaced promptly. Appropriate handles must be used on files and similar tools. Appropriate safety glasses, face shields, etc., must be worn while using hand tools or equipment which might produce flying materials or be subject to breakage. Check your tools often for wear or defects. Jacks must be checked periodically to assure they are in good operating condition. Tool handles must be wedged tightly into the heads of tools. Tool cutting edges should be kept sharp enough so the tool will move smoothly without binding or skipping. When not in use, tools should be stored in a dry, secure location. Machine and Power Tools Personnel operating power equipment must be trained on safe methods of machine or power tool operations before operating any machine or power tool. It is the primary purpose of supervision to ensure that workers are following safe machine or power tool operating procedures. All machinery and equipment and power tools must be kept clean and properly maintained. There must be sufficient clearance provided around and between machines or power tools to allow for safe operations, set up, servicing, material handling, and waste removal. There must be a power shut-off switch within reach of the operator's position at each machine or power tool. Electrical power to each machine or power tool shall be capable of being locked out for maintenance, repair, or security. The non-current carrying metal parts of electrically operated tools must be grounded. All manually operated valves and switches controlling the operation of equipment and machines must be clearly identified and readily accessible. Portable Power Tools Portable power tools pose a special danger to workers because they are small and light, yet they can do great bodily harm if used improperly or poorly maintained. These rules apply to all power tools, but are 64 especially important when handling portable saws, drills, and power screwdrivers. Check your equipment before you use it. All grinders, saws, and similar equipment should be equipped with appropriate safety guards as provided in 29 CFR 1910.215. Power tools should not be used without the correct shield, guard, or attachment, recommended by the manufacturer. Portable circular saws must be equipped with guards above and below the base shoe. Circular saw guards should be checked periodically and before each use to assure they are not wedged up, thus leaving the lower portion of the blade unguarded. All rotating or moving parts of equipment should be guarded to prevent physical contact. All cord-connected, electrically operated tools and equipment should be effectively grounded or of the approved double insulated type. Effective guards must be in place over belts, pulleys, chains, sprockets, on equipment such as concrete mixers, air compressors, etc. If portable fans are provided, they must be equipped with full guards or screens having openings 1/2 inch or less. Do not attempt to lift heavy objects without proper equipment. Hoisting equipment will be made available for lifting heavy objects, with hoist ratings and characteristics appropriate for the task. Power tools are either battery- operated or wired. If battery operated, don't under-estimate their power. A small electric drill or power screwdriver can cause a severe injury if it lands in the wrong place. While not usually a shock hazard, the battery pack contains toxic chemicals and does emit a low voltage electric current. Don't drop or incinerate the battery pack, or a tool with a self-contained power source. Hard-wired equipment can be portable or fixed. Typically used with extension cords, the more powerful hard-wired equipment presents a double safety problem: the actual equipment plus its electrical power source. Ground-fault circuit interrupters must be provided on all temporary electrical 15 and 20 ampere circuits used during periods of construction. Pneumatic and hydraulic hoses on power-operated tools should be checked regularly for deterioration or damage. All power tools shall be used in compliance with appropriate NEC codes. 65 Section 18 MACHINE GUARDING I. Purpose The purpose of this section is to provide guidance on the minimum safety requirements related to machine safeguards which are used to protect employees when the operation of machines/equipment or accidental contact with it could cause an injury. II. Scope The program applies to all Laramie employees and contractors who work in areas where potential exposures to any machine where parts, functions, or processes may cause an injury. III. Definitions Device. A press control or attachment that restrains the operator from inadvertently reaching into the point of operation. Enclosure. Guarding by fixed physical barriers that are either mounted on or around the moving parts of the machine/equipment. Fencing. A locked fence or rail enclosure that restricts access to the machine, except by authorized personnel. The dangerous operation of the machinery must be at least 42 inches away from the fencing. Guard. A barrier (fixed or movable) that prevents contact with moving parts. Guards are more protective and are preferred over devices. Hazards. A source of potential harm or damage, or a situation with potential for harm or damage. In-going Nip Points. Two or more mechanical components rotating in opposite directions in the same plane and in close conjunction or interaction. Pinch Point. Any place where a body part can be caught between two or more moving parts. Point-of-operation. The point at which cutting, shaping, boring, forming, or processing is accomplished on or within the equipment. IV. Responsibilities A. Safety Department a. Ensure that program and associated documentation is completed and maintained. 66 b. Develops training materials and trains employees on the topics required by this program. c. Reviews the effectiveness of the program to make sure it satisfies the requirements of all applicable federal, state, or local requirements. d. Assists with or completes assessments and inspections, when required. B. Field Supervisors a. Ensures workers follow safe work practices when working with or near machines. b. Ensures workers do not remove or operate machines without machine guards in-place. c. Ensures safe operating and maintenance procedures are current and are followed by workers. C. Employees and Contractors a. Operate machines with all safeguards in place and follow all applicable safety requirements (e.g., lockout/tagout) b. Understand hazards related to machines being worked with and proper safeguarding methods. c. Participates in all required training. V. General Requirements and Procedures A. Guards must be placed on machines to protect the operator(s) and other workers in the area from hazards such as those created by the point of operation, in-going nip points, rotating parts, moving belts, cutting teeth, flying chips/sparks, and any other parts that impact or shear. B. Safeguards must prevent contact, be secure, protect workers from falling objects, create no new hazards, create no interference, and allow for safe lubrication of equipment. C. Safeguarding methods: a. Guards – prevents entry i. Fixed – a barrier or enclosure that permits material to enter into the operation zone, but not the operator’s body or body parts. Fixed guards are not dependent upon moving parts to perform its intended function. ii. Interlocked – When guard is opened or removed, the tripping mechanism and/or power automatically shuts off or disengages, and the equipment cannot operate until the guard is back in place. iii. Adjustable – protects the operator by placing a barrier between dangerous areas and the operator. iv. Self-adjusting – the guard is automatic, and the opening is determined by the movement of parts of the equipment. b. Device – controls entry (may be used to replace or as supplement to guard) 67 i. Gate – a moveable barrier that protects the operator at the point of operation before the equipment can be started. ii. Presence sensing device – equipment is either stopped or the cycle will not start, if a hand or any part of the body is inadvertently placed into a dangerous area. iii. Safety trip controls – a quick means for deactivating the equipment in an emergency situation. iv. Two hand control/trip – prevent operator from reaching into the point of operation by requiring concurrent pressure of operator’s control buttons to activate the equipment. c. Additional Methods i. When guards or devices cannot be used, there are additional methods that can be used such as fencing, safe distance, safe opening, and safe position of controls. ii. These additional methods do not provide the same level of protection of guards or devices. They depend on specific procedures, work rules, training, and/or supervision to prevent entry into dangerous areas. VI. Equipment Maintenance A. All equipment must be properly maintained per the manufacturer’s and/or the equipment owner’s requirements. B. All Laramie employees and contractors shall follow lockout/tagout procedures for shutting down equipment prior to removing any safeguards or accessing any equipment where he/she could be exposed to hazardous moving parts. C. If maintenance requires testing or adjustment of equipment with it’s safeguards removed, equipment specific procedures should be developed and followed for performing the task(s) safely. D. After maintenance is complete, replace safeguards before equipment restart. VII. Training A. Employees who work with or may be exposed to machines/equipment which require safeguarding will receive classroom training to ensure he/she is familiar with safeguarding methods and hazards. B. Employees who work with specific equipment will receive on-the-job training for that equipment. C. Classroom training records will be maintained by the safety department. 68 VIII. Revision History The table below lists all changes made to this section since the implementation of the program: 69 Section 19 FIRE PREVENTION I. Purpose This section is to assist in the prevention of fire and explosions on Laramie worksites. II. Scope The purpose of this section is to establish safe work requirements for preventing fires and explosions and protecting workers if a fire or explosion occurs. These safe work requirements include identifying and controlling hazards and instituting fire protection requirements. III. Definitions Bonding – The act of causing two metallic conductive elements to be at the same voltage level (not necessarily the same voltage as earth). Combustible liquids – Any liquid having a flash point at or above 100° F. Combustible liquids shall be divided into two classes: Class II liquids shall include those with flash points at or above 100° F and below 140° F, except any mixture having components with flash points of 200° F or higher, the volume of which makes up 99% or more of the total volume of the mixture (e.g., diesel). Class III liquids shall include those with flash points at or above 140° F. Class III liquids are subdivided into two subclasses: Class IIIA liquids, which include liquids with flash points at or above 140° F and below 200° F, except any mixture having components with flash points of 200° F or higher, the total volume of which makes up 99% or more of the total volume of the mixture (e.g. phenol). Class IIIB liquids, which include liquids with flash points at or above 200° F (e.g., motor oil). When a combustible liquid is heated to within 30° F of its flash point, it shall be handled in accordance with the requirements for the next lower class of liquids. Combustible solids – Combustible solids include oil-soaked rags, trash, grasses, paper, wood, etc. Explosion – A rapid increase in volume and violent release of energy resulting from a rapid chemical reaction, usually resulting in the release of high temperatures and gases. Fire – A rapid, persistent chemical change that releases heat and light and is accompanied by flame, especially the exothermic oxidation of a combustible substance. 70 Fire classification – Classes of fires are listed: Class “A” fire - involves ordinary combustible materials such as paper, wood, cloth, and some rubber and plastic materials. Class “B” fire - involves flammable or combustible liquids, flammable gases, greases, and similar materials, and some rubber and plastic materials. Class “C” fire – involves energized electrical equipment where safety to the employee requires the use of electrically nonconductive extinguishing media. Class “D” fire – involves combustible metals such as magnesium, titanium, zirconium, sodium, lithium and potassium. Flammable liquid – Any liquid having a flash point below 100° F, except any mixture having components with flashpoints of 100° F or higher, the total of which make up 99% or more of the total volume of the mixture. Flammable liquids shall be known as Class I liquids. Class I liquids are listed below: Class IA shall include liquids having flash points below 73° F and having a boiling point below 100° F. (e.g., ethyl ether). Class IB shall include liquids having flash points below 73° F and having a boiling point at or above 100° F. (e.g., methanol and gasoline). Class IC shall include liquids having flash points at or above 73° F and below 100° F (e.g., propyl alcohol). Flash point is the basis for classification of flammable and combustible liquids because it is directly related to a liquid’s ability to generate vapor, i.e. it’s volatility. Since it is the vapor of the liquid, not the liquid itself that burns, vapor generation becomes the primary factor in determining a fire hazard. Grounding – The act of causing a metallic conductive element to be at the same voltage level as earth. Hazardous location – A location where concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, or dusts occur. Electrical installations at such locations shall be specifically designed and tested to ensure it does not initiate an explosion, due to arcing contacts or high surface temperature of equipment. Ignition source – Any process or event capable of causing a fire or explosion. Open flames, sparks, static electricity, and hot surfaces are all possible ignition sources. Incipient stage fire – A fire which is in the initial or beginning stage and which can be controlled or extinguished by portable fire extinguishers, Class II standpipe or small hose systems without the need for protective clothing or breathing apparatus. 71 Portable tank – A closed container having a liquid capacity over 60 US gallons and not intended for fixed installation. Safety can – An approved container of not more than 5-gallon capacity having a spring-closing lid and spout cover, and so designed that it will safely relieve internal pressure when subjected to fire exposure.

Controlling fuel and ignition sources in accordance with regulations or requirements. e. Providing properly selected, inspected, and maintained fire extinguishers in accordance with site and job requirements. V. Procedures A. Gas Detection Systems – Gas detection systems are used to monitor the air for oxygen levels, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), LEL, and carbon monoxide (CO). Many of these gases are monitored to detect health hazards, however; these measurements also indicate the presence of fire and explosion hazards such as LEL. Gas detection systems can be fixed systems, built into a facility, or personal gas detection monitors which are worn as monitors on a person. Requirements for these two types of gas detection systems are given below. 72 1. Fixed gas detection and suppression systems – A fire suppression system (i.e. automatic sprinkler system, deluge system and detection system) may be used where determined necessary. These systems must be properly maintained and tested for proper operation. Fixed gas detection must not be used in lieu of portable gas monitors for periodic or continuous gas monitoring requirements associated with a Hot Work Permit. 2. Personal gas detection – Personal gas detection refers to portable quantitative equipment that is used to detect various gases. Personal monitors are designed to provide fast and reliable warnings against flammable gases, dangerous oxygen concentrations and toxins. Personal monitors shall be used in the following situations: • When required by another section (Hydrogen Sulfide, Hot Work, Confined Space, etc.) • When working in an area where hydrocarbon or toxic gases may be present. • When lighting heaters, flares, burners or other fired equipment. • When working in enclosed areas where carbon monoxide may be present. • When working in areas where dangerous concentrations of oxygen may be present. • In areas where concentration of HsS could exceed 10 ppm in a breathing zone with limited dilution ventilation where no fixed detection is provided. • During activities which may release H2S into the atmosphere in the immediate work area. Monitor requirements: Personal monitors must have an audible and vibrating alarm and concentration readout on the unit. Alarms must be set at or below the PEL. All monitors must be intrinsically safe or explosion proof and must be calibrated, zeroed, bump-tested and maintained per the manufacturer’s recommendations. Direct gas readings should be analyzed and evaluated as per the manufacturer’s instrument operating instructions. B. Fire brigades – It is recommended that the use of local fire protection districts or fire departments be used for facility fire protection requirements for fire brigades. If one is determined to be needed on site, 29CFR 1910.156 requirements must be followed. C. Portable fire extinguishers – Fire extinguishers must be available for use at all Laramie facilities. They must be fully charged, inspected, and operational. They must remain in their designated location unless they are being used for emergency response, maintenance or servicing. 1. Selecting and locating fire extinguishers • The type of fire extinguisher must be selected based on the type of fuel source, such as combustible solids or flammable liquids. Maximum distances to a fire 73 extinguisher must follows regulations outlined in CFR 190.157(d). (Class A – 75 feet, Class B, C and D – 50 feet). • Determine the number of fire extinguishers required to protect property by considering: area and arrangement of buildings, severity of hazard, potential classes of fires, distances between extinguishers, etc.) • Mount portable fire extinguishers in plants, compressor stations, and offices as follows: in a conspicuous location, free from obstructions, with a maximum of five feet from the floor to the top of the extinguisher, with signage reading “fire extinguisher” to identify the location. • All field company vehicles must have a 20-lb. minimum fire extinguisher installed in a readily accessible location. 2. Inspecting fire extinguishers • Inspect all extinguishers monthly and annually. Extinguishers that do not pass inspection shall be repaired per the manufacturer’s recommendation or permanently taken out of service. Monthly fire extinguisher inspections for vehicles will be recorded on the Vehicle Inspection Form. Inspections for field locations will be recorded on the individual fire extinguisher tags. • All fire extinguishers shall be inspected annually by a qualified, approved inspector. This inspection will include the extinguisher’s shell, gauge, hose and nozzle, weighing and retagging. All service, maintenance or hydrostatic testing shall also be documented and retained. • Hydrostatic testing – if an extinguisher has severe corrosion, the shell is damaged or other detrimental conditions exist, the unit will be removed from service, discarded or hydrostatic tested to ensure that the shell is in good condition. Only personnel with proper testing equipment and knowledge shall test the extinguishers. All fire extinguishers will be hydrostatically tested at intervals listed in 29CFR 1910.157 Table L-1. D. Wildfire equipment – Wildfire equipment requirements are normally based on fire restrictions or bans in the working area and fall under local jurisdiction (BLM, Forest Service, county, etc.). Laramie employees will comply with any requirements or restrictions set forth. E. Signage – Fire prevention signs shall be posted in conspicuous locations and kept in good condition. F. Combustible solids – As a fuel source, non-essential combustible solids (oil soaked rags, trash, grasses, paper, vegetation, combustible waste materials, spent spill containment/absorbent wastes, and contaminated filters) shall be properly removed from the work area. When possible, select non-flammable or non-combustible materials as an alternative to reduce the fire and explosion hazard. G. Storage 74 1. Containers and portable tanks – Those used for flammable and combustible liquids must meet the following requirements: • Containers and tanks must remain closed when not in use. • The size and type of container and tank must meet storage requirements in compliance with 29CFR1910.106(d)(2)(iii) Table H-12 and NFPA 30 Table 9.4.3 • Each portable tank shall be provided with one or more devices installed in the top with sufficient emergency venting capacity to limit internal pressure under fire exposure conditions. • Non-conductive portable tanks (plastic or fiberglass) shall be equipped and configured to eliminate any static discharge that may occur during the handling of flammable liquids. 2.

Supporting Documents A. Shelter in Place Plan B. Office Emergency Plan C. Emergency Action Plan D. Emergency Notification Chart 80 Section 22 OTHER TOPICS Other Topics as listed below: Cleanliness All work sites must be clean and orderly as required by 29 CFR 1910.22. All work surfaces must be kept dry or appropriate means taken to assure that surfaces are slip-resistant. Spills must be reported and cleaned up immediately. All combustible scrap, debris, and waste must be stored safely and removed promptly. Waste containers must be covered. Oily and paint soaked rags are combustible and should be discarded in sealable metal containers only. Rags with spent solvent must be properly disposed of. Compressed Gas Cylinders - Compressed gas cylinders should be regularly examined for obvious signs of defects, deep rusting, or leakage. Use care in handling and storing cylinders, safety valves, and relief valves to prevent damage. Precaution must be taken to prevent mixture of air or oxygen with flammable gases, except at a burner or in a standard torch. Only approved apparatus (torches, regulators, pressure-reducing valves, acetylene generators, manifolds) may be used. Cylinders must be kept away from sources of heat. It is prohibited to use cylinders as rollers or supports. Empty cylinders must be appropriately marked, their valves closed and valve-protection caps on. Cylinders, cylinder valves, couplings, regulators, hoses and apparatus must be kept free of oily or greasy substances. Care must be taken not to drop or strike cylinders. Unless secured on special trucks, all regulators must be removed and valve-protection caps put in place before moving cylinders. All cylinders without fixed hand wheels must have keys, handles, or non-adjustable wrenches on stem valves when in service. Liquefied gases must be stored and shipped valve-end up with valve covers in place. Stored cylinders shall be kept separate in “Used/Unused” sections and marked as such. Areas where cylinders are stored must be clearly marked with signs that read: DANGER - NO SMOKING, MATCHES, OR OPEN FLAMES/LIGHTS Regulators and Hoses - Before a regulator is removed, the valve must be closed and gas released from the regulator. All workers are instructed never to crack a fuel-gas cylinder valve near sources of ignition. Gas hoses shall be color-coded: • Red for acetylene (and other fuel-gas); • Green for oxygen hose, and • Black for inert gas and air hose. All pressure-reducing regulators must be used only for the gas and pressures for which they are intended. Liquids Handling and Transfer Operations Liquids handling and transfer operations occur on a regular basis for condensate and produced water. Laramie Energy retains competent contractors to complete these activities and the companies providing 81 these services are required to develop and maintain their own corporate safety programs and procedures. At a minimum, Laramie Energy requires: • All drivers must comply with DOT regulations in 49 CFR Part 177 and facility standard operating procedures posted at the facility; and • Drivers must be authorized by Laramie Energy to load or unload product at any facility; • No smoking during liquids transfer operations. • Drivers must park their vehicle upwind or cross wind of the tank containing the liquids. • The vehicle must be grounded and turned off during liquids transfer operations. • The use of drip pans under hose connections is required. In addition, drivers must observe the requirements of the SPCC plan. Fueling Fueling and refueling operations are not common activities during the operation of a natural gas field, except where power equipment, generators, or similar equipment are temporarily in use. Workers involved with fueling activities must be trained in proper handling and storage of flammable liquids, how to operate and shut off the fueling system and in spill response operations. The applicable Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures Plan should be reviewed by all personnel involved with fueling operations. Pipelines and Gathering Systems All pipelines must be constructed and maintained in accordance with the standard for interstate pipeline regulations. The location of all buried pipelines must be clearly marked and signs must be posted identifying the pipeline contents, the potential hazards (i.e. high pressure, toxicity or flammable) and where turn-off valves, connections and outlets are located. All tags used for labeling will be of a durable material with distinguishable and clearly written print. When non-potable water is piped through a facility’s outlets or taps, notices will be posted to alert workers that it is unsafe and not to be used for drinking, washing or personal use. Well Drilling and Completion Operations Laramie Energy retains independent professional contractors for all services related to well drilling from initial staking through drilling, completion and hook-up. These contractors are fully competent and trained and they maintain their own corporate safety programs and procedures. All contractors are responsible for the implementation and enforcement of their own safety policies and procedures. Laramie Energy fully supports those measures. Even so, Laramie Energy feels that supplemental safety policies, complementary to the contractor’s regulations in place, are warranted. The following section summarizes the Company’s policies concerning well drilling, well completion and well workover activities. 4.3.1 General Drilling Safety Spudding shall not commence until all guards are in place on all equipment to be operated; all platforms, stairways, and handrails are secured in position; the escape line with buggy is installed; and 82 A-leg pins are instead in their proper A-leg holes and secured by safety pins to prevent their displacement. An escape line shall be a wire rope of suitable diameter and type. It shall be kept free of obstructions. An approved safety buggy with an adequate braking device (Geronimo) shall be installed on the escape line and kept at the derrick man’s working platform. The safety buggy and escape line shall be checked by the derrick man each trip. Tension on the escape line shall be such that a 200- pound worker sitting in the safety buggy will touch the ground at least twenty feet (20') from the anchor. The minimum length of the escape line, which shall be securely anchored both at the ground and to the rig, shall be adequate to assure no less than 45-degree descent from the vertical plane. OSHA safety regulations that address common drilling-related safety concerns include: • 29 CFR 1910.23 – Floor openings; • 29 CFR 1910.24 – Guarding of Stairs; • 29 CFR 1910.27 – Ladders and Climbing Devices; • 20 CFR 1910.132 - Hazard Assessment; and • 29 CFR 1910.132 - Fall Protection Devices and Rescue Plans; • 29 CFR 1910.184 - Slings and Lifting Devices. Every person, when engaged in work at ten feet (10') or more above the derrick floor or other working surfaces, shall wear a safety harness with an attached safety line secured to the derrick except during rig up and rig down. Where these regulations prescribe the use of safety harness, the operator shall use an approved safety harness suitable for the particular job and in good condition, which safety harness and lifeline is to be provided by the employer. The safety harness shall be attached by means of a tail rope or lanyard to a fixed anchor and adjusted to allow the minimum of drop in case of fall. A separate lifeline shall be provided for each operator requiring a life line, and safety belts and life lines shall be checked before each use and maintained in good condition. Every automatic cat head shall have a separate control. Where dual-purpose controls are used, a positive locking device shall be installed to prevent one automatic cat head from accidentally engaging while the other is in operation. When practical, draw works master controls shall be effectively locked out when not in use. Guards shall be installed so that controls may not be accidentally engaged through contract by cat lines or other equipment. The engine room, pump house, derrick floor and fourble board shall be enclosed to a sufficient height to provide protection against inclement weather. Exits shall be provided to the outside on at least three sides of the derrick floor. The pump house shall have two doors leading in different directions to the outside. No exit door of a derrick, including all doors of the doghouse, shall be held closed with a lock or outside latch while anyone is on the derrick floor. The suction pit or tanks used for the circulation of flammable materials shall not be located inside the pump house. No operator shall handle a traveling hoisting line unless he uses a suitable hand guard, which shall be secured to the derrick. No operator shall slide down any pipe, kelly hose, cable, or rope line except in the event of an extreme emergency. No operator shall ride a traveling block with which pipe is being moved at any time. When riding a traveling block or elevators, a safety belt with lanyard shall be worn and the lanyard shall be attached to the block above the hook. No operator shall use the cat line as a means of ascending to or descending from any point in the derrick except in an emergency. Even then the rotary table shall be locked out and qualified workers shall operate the cat head and controls. 83 When working on hydraulic tong heads, the input pressure line shall be disconnected. High pressure lines (hydraulic or air) shall have a safety pressure relief valve which shall never be set higher than manufacturer's specifications for the working pressure of the lines or valve. Hydraulic tongs shall be backed up with a safety device able to withstand the full torque of the power tool. Auxiliary power tong units which employ internal combustion engines shall have the power unit placed seventy-five feet (75') upwind of the well bore, considering the normal prevailing wind at the rig location, where location and terrain permit. The rotary table shall not be used for the final making up or initial breaking out of a pipe connection. All pipe and drill collars racked in a derrick shall be secured with rope or otherwise adequately secured to prevent them from falling across the derrick. Safety clamps, used on drill collars, flush joint pipe, or similar equipment for the purpose of preventing its falling in the well when not held by the elevator, shall be removed from the drill collars, pipe, or similar equipment before being hoisted up into the derrick. Racking foundations shall be designed to withstand the load or racked pipe and drill collars and be secured to prevent turnover. 4.3.2 General Drilling Rules Surface casing shall be run to reach a depth to prevent blowouts or uncontrolled wells. In areas where pressures and formations are unknown, surface casing shall be of sufficient size to permit the use of an intermediate string or strings of casing. Surface casing shall be set in or through an impervious formation and shall be cemented by the pump and plug or displacement or other approved method with sufficient cement to fill annulus to the top of the hole. If cement is not circulated to the surface during the primary operation, supplemental cemented operations shall be performed to assure that the annular space from the casing shoe to the surface is filled with cement. The cemented casing string shall stand under pressure until the cement has reached a compressive strength of 300 pounds per square inch; providing, however, that no further operation shall be commenced until the cement has been in place for at least eight (8) hours. The term "under pressure" as used herein shall be complied with if one float valve is used or if pressure is otherwise held. Setting depths of all casing strings shall be determined by taking into account formation fracture gradients and the maximum anticipated pressure to be maintained within the well bore. If and when it becomes necessary to run a production string, such string shall be cemented by the pump and plug method and shall be properly tested by the pressure method before cement plugs are drilled. Natural gas which may be encountered in a substantial quantity in any section of a cable tool drilled hole above the ultimate objective shall be shut off with reasonable diligence either by mudding or casing, or other approved method and confined to its original source. Any gas escaping from the well during drilling operations shall be, as far as practicable, conducted to a safe distance from the well site and burned. An approved safety harness (as provided in 29 CFR 1910.66) suitable for the particular job or hazard exposure, which shall be attached by means of a tail-rope or lanyard to a fixed anchor and adjusted to allow the minimum of drop in case of a fall, shall be provided and worn. Every person, when engaged in work at ten feet (10') or more above the derrick floor or other working surfaces, shall wear a safety belt with an attached safety line secured to a fixed point, or be supported from the tugger line by a safety harness or tree trimmer-type belt. The tugger line shall not be freewheeling. Special protective wearing 84 apparel shall be provided and worn as deemed necessary because of unusually hazardous situations not normal to the job. 4.3.3 Blowout Equipment Blowout prevention equipment (BOP) in all drilling operations shall be in accordance with recognized safe practices, reasonably adequate to keep the well under control at all times, as well as inclusive of blowout preventers, choke and kill lines, as necessary, and maintained in good working condition at all times. One or more workers employed on the rig shall have an adequate understanding of, and be able to operate, the blowout preventer system. At least one person who is trained in blowout prevention and well control procedures shall be on the well site. Blowout preventer controls shall be readily accessible on the floor and/or at least twenty feet (20') from the well bore and outside the substructure. All blowout preventers, choke lines and manifold shall be installed above ground level. Casing heads and optional spools may be installed below ground level provided they are visible and accessible. All pipe fittings and valves placed on, or connected with a blowout preventer, well casing, casing head, or the drill pipe or tubing, shall be of a type suitable for the purpose for which they are to be used and adequate to withstand the pressure which may be encountered. All ram type blowout preventers and related equipment, including casing, shall be tested to the full working pressure rating of said equipment upon installation, provided that components need not be tested to levels higher than the lowest working pressure rated component. Annular type blowout preventers shall be tested in conformance with the manufacturer's recommendations. If, for any reason, a pressure seal in the assembly is disassembled, a test to a full working pressure rating of that seal shall be conducted prior to the resumption of any drilling operation. In addition to the initial pressure tests, ram type preventers shall be checked for physical operation each trip and all components, again with exception of the annular type blowout preventer, tested monthly to at least fifty percent (50%) of the rated pressure of the blowout preventer equipment and/or to the maximum anticipated pressure of the blowout preventer equipment and/or to the maximum anticipated pressure to be contained at the surface, whichever is greater. The working pressure rating of all blowout preventers and related equipment shall equal or exceed the maximum anticipated pressure to be contained at the surface. The entire blowout preventer and wellhead assembly shall be kept reasonably clean of mud and ice. Studs on all wellhead and blowout preventer flanges shall be checked weekly for tightness. Where locking screws are provided on blowout preventers, hand wheels shall be kept installed and operational, and readily accessible. A drill stem safety valve shall be available on the rig floor at all times. While a well is being drilled, tested, completed, or reconditioned, the appropriate blowout equipment shall be mechanically tested periodically, and the blind rams shall be mechanically tested daily (provided that this requirement does not necessitate a special trip of the tools from the hole). If found defective, any such equipment or rams shall be made serviceable before operations are resumed. All tests shall be documented in the daily drilling logbook, and in the case of a pressure test, the pressure applied and the duration shall be recorded. BOP equipment installed on wells in which formation pressures to be encountered are abnormal or unknown shall consist of a double-gate, hydraulically operated preventer with pipe and blind rams or two single-ram type preventers, one equipped with pipe rams, the other with blind rams and an annular 85 type preventer. In addition, upper and lower kelly cocks, pit level indicators with alarms and/or flow sensors with alarms, and surface facilities to handle pressure kicks shall be installed prior to drilling any formation with known abnormal pressure. Accumulators shall maintain a pressure capacity reserve at all times to provide for operation of the hydraulic preventer and valves with no outside source. Areas in which abnormal pressures are likely to be encountered are those as defined by the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission's staff and posted on a map to be available in the State Oil and Gas Supervisor's office. This map, to be updated as information becomes available, will also segregate, vertically, formations where abnormal pressures are likely to be encountered. In all other drilling operations, BOP equipment shall consist of at least one double-gate preventer with pipe and blind rams or two single-ram type preventers, one equipped with pipe rams, the other with blind rams, and sufficient valving to permit fluid circulation at the surface, or shall be as approved by the State Oil and Gas Supervisor's Office and/or the U.S. Geological Survey District Engineer's office, as filed on the drilling permit. Blowout preventer equipment and related casing heads and spools shall have a vertical bore no smaller than the inside diameter of the casing to which they are attached. 4.3.4 Mud Pits and Tanks Portable tanks shall be located where it is not possible for workers or equipment to come into contact with overhead power lines. All discharge lines shall be properly secured. No operator shall jump from one tank top to another. All fixed mud guns used for jetting shall be pinned or hobbled when unattended. Hoses used for jetting operations shall be manned and an operator stationed at the pump control to shut down the pressure in the event of an emergency. Standard railings shall be provided on the inside of all mud tank walkways. Where such walkways are four feet or more above ground level, both sides shall be provided with standard railings.

Title: Email:Date: Print Name: Signed: I hereby certify that the statements made in this form are, to the best of my knowledge, true, correct and complete. A total of 24 wells are planned for this pad; however, only 1 well is being permitted at this time due to lease obligations. Disposal Description: (Drilling Waste Management) Laramie plans to drill the wells within this project boundary with a dewatering system with no need for a reserve pit. Drilling fluids are recycled and re-used with cuttings being de-watered and captured in a catch pan, stacked in a cuttings management area and allowed to dry. Once the cuttings are dry and satisfy the COGCC for Rule 910 analytics, the cuttings will be stacked along the cut slope then buried and covered with a minimum of 3 feet of cover. This operation will occur after the completion of all the wells. Sage Grouse: On August 2, 2017, Laramie Energy employees met with the BLM and the CPW to discuss the pad location and the sensitive wildlife habitat for the Greater Sage Grouse. Both the BLM and the CPW are of the opinion that no BMPs are required for this proposed location and are waiving the BMP requirement. The CPW is in the process of generating correspondence to this effect. Therefore, no BMP is attached to this permit.

COGCC Form 42. FIELD OPERATIONS NOTICE (a. Notice of Intent to Conduct Hydraulic Fracturing Treatment and c. Notice of Construction or Major Change); operator shall notify the COGCC 48 hours prior to pipeline testing (flowlines from wellheads to separators to tanks; and/or any temporary surface lines used for hydraulic stimulation and/or flowback operations) using the Form 42 (as described in Rule 316C.m. Notice of Completion of Form 2/2A Permit Conditions). The appropriate COGCC individuals will automatically be email notified. Operator must ensure secondary containment for any volume of fluids contained at the well site during drilling and completion operations; including, but not limited to, construction of a berm or diversion dike, diversion/collection trenches within and/or outside of berms/dikes, site grading, or other comparable measures (i.e., best management practices [BMPs] associated with fluid containment/control as well as stormwater management for the control of run-on and run-off) sufficiently protective of nearby surface water. The access road will be constructed and maintained as to not allow sediment to migrate from the access road to nearby surface water or any drainages leading to surface water. Strategically apply fugitive dust control measures to reduce fugitive dust and coating of vegetation and deposition in water sources. Berms or other containment devices shall be constructed to be sufficiently impervious (corrugated steel with poly liner or equivalent) to contain any spilled or released material around permanent condensate and produced water storage tanks. The moisture content of drill cuttings managed onsite shall be kept as low as practicable to prevent accumulation of liquids greater than de minimis amounts. After drilling and completion operations have been completed, the drill cuttings that will remain on the well pad location (cuttings management area, the cut portion of the pad, cuttings trench, dry cuttings drilling pit), must be sampled and meet the applicable standards of Table 910-1. After the drill cuttings have been amended (if necessary) and placed on the well pad, sampling frequency of the drill cuttings (to be determined by the operator) shall be representative of the material left on location. No offsite disposal of cuttings to another oil and gas location shall occur without prior approval of a Waste Management Plan (submitted via a Form 4 Sundry Notice) specifying disposal location and waste characterization method. No offsite reuse of cuttings to another oil and gas location shall occur without prior approval of a Beneficial Reuse or Land Application Plan (submitted via a Form 4 Sundry Notice) specifying reuse or application, location, and waste characterization method. Commercial disposal of drill cuttings and drilling fluids will only require the operator to maintain documentation (manifests, bills of lading, etc) of drill cuttings and drilling fluids disposal. Flowback and stimulation fluids must be sent to enclosed tanks, separators, or other containment/filtering equipment before the fluids can be placed into any pipeline or other open top containment located on the well pad; or into tanker trucks for offsite disposal. No open top tanks can be used for initial flowback fluids containment. The flowback and stimulation fluid tanks, separators, or other containment/filtering equipment must be placed on the well pad in an area constructed to be sufficiently impervious to contain any spilled or released material. No additional downgradient berming is required if operator constructs a sufficiently sized perimeter berm. Potential odors associated with the completions process and/or with long term production operations must be controlled/mitigated.

Due to the existing development and fragmentation in this area along with the topography and habitat conditions at this site, greater sage- grouse use is unlikely. Therefore, CPW does not recommend any timing stipulations or other BMPs for greater sage-grouse protection. BLM lease stips and conditions of approval are sufficient to address other wildlife and habitat concerns (e.g. raptor surveys before construction).

The CC 0697-03-07 pad (location #452807) was approved and built and 13 of the originally permitted 20 wells were drilled in 2018. The rig was then moved off the pad to drill pads to meet other lease obligations. The rig is scheduled to return to the CC 697-03-07 to drill the remaining 7 wells in 2021. The SHL and/or BHL on the 7 remaining wells were changed and approved via Form 4 Sundry Notices. There are no changes to the objective formations of the wells. There have been no changes to the surrounding land use and there will be no changes to the existing location. Laramie Energy, LLC, is the surface owner.

The edge of the 0697-03-07 pad is located ~308¶from the NSO Habitat boundary for Aquatic Sportfish Management Waters, and 726¶from the Rule 309.e.1. boundary for Greater Sage Grouse General Habitat Management Area. The pad is also located in a black bear area; the wildlife BMP for black bear was attached to approved Form 2A #401387622. On August 2, 2017, Laramie Energy employees met with the BLM and the CPW to discuss the pad location and the sensitive wildlife habitat for the Greater Sage Grouse. Both the BLM and the CPW are of the opinion that no BMPs are required for this proposed location and are waiving the BMP requirement. Following is an excerpt from United State Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Environmental Assessment, DOI-BLM-CO-N040-2017-0104- EA, Federal Lease COC70734 and Federal Lease COC56830³However, since the majority of the area surrounding the well pads does not support sagebrush, this is not suitable habitat for sage-grouse. Small patches of suitable habitat may exist between stands of aspen and mountain shrub in the project area. However, the lack of connectivity and the steep topography in the area render it unlikely that it would be used by individuals.´No grouse or sign were observed during surveys conducted by WestWater Engineering in August of 2017 (WestWater 2017a, WestWater 2017b). Representatives from Colorado Parks and Wildlife attended the onsite on August 2, 2017, and made the determination that the location of the pad would not have a negative impact on GRSG since the area is already highly fragmented and the topography between the nearest lek and the proposed development would buffer potential impacts. Additionally, ³since the area contains marginally suitable habitat, it is unlikely that GRSG frequent the area where the project is proposed (CPW 2017b, M. Warren, pers. comm., 2 Aug 2017). As a result, MD MR-10, the March 1 to July 15 TL for lekking, nesting, and early brood-rearing will not be applied.´ DI Community: The 697-03-07 pad is located in Block Group ID: 080459521001; Block group % minority population is > county % minority population.
