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 and will continue to primarily work remotely.  If you find you are experiencing a delay in response time, please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

During the Safer at Home phase, OPS will be offering limited office hours:

Tuesday - Thursday

10:00 am - 2:00 pm

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

Understanding that your contractors, consultants and third party inspectors may not have been available to provide you with timely service, OPS provided regulated owners and operators with extensions to any compliance-related deadline that occurred in March or April of 2020.  Beginning in May 2020, OPS will consider case-by-case extensions to compliance deadlines if necessary due to the COVID-19 situation.  Please contact your OPS program representative if you need to discuss deadlines and extensions.

Thank you for your patience.

In the event of a station closure, here are the Unattended Fueling Requirements that you will need to meet in order to continue selling fuel with no attendants. 

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.
