Petroleum

Due to the concerns related to COVID-19 and the current Red Level risk factor, the Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) continues to take precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees.  Most of our staff is currently working from home to comply with the higher level status.

This is in an effort to change the trajectory of this virus, and applies to state employees (with limited exceptions) in counties with orange or red levels of incidence. 

We are currently open by appointment only.

If you need assistance, please call 303-318-8525 to schedule an appointment or email us at cdle_ops@state.co.us 

 

All visitors will be required to wear a mask per the Governor’s Executive Order.

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.

For information pertaining to items that do not fall under our jurisdiction, you may contact the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at 303-692-3331 or the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission at 303-894-2100.
