Due to the concerns related to COVID-19, the Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) continues to take precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees.  All visitors will be required to wear a mask per the Governor’s Executive Order.

Most of our employees are currently working from home, however; 


Our office is open daily from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  

If no one is at the front desk, please use the doorbell and someone will assist you. 

If you need any assistance outside of these office hours, please contact our office at 303-318-8525.  

Thank you for your patience.

The OPS Petroleum Program regulates petroleum storage facilities with USTs (underground storage tanks) that hold 110 gallons or more and ASTs (aboveground storage tanks) that hold between 660 and 40,000 gallons. We also enforce NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) codes for ASTs that hold between 60 and 660 gallons or 40,000+ gallons when they are installed for retail and non-retail fueling.
