Petroleum

Due to concerns related to COVID-19, the Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) is taking precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees.  While OPS remains open for business, we encourage you to utilize our online, email and telephone services as much as possible to minimize social contact.  

Understanding that your contractors, consultants and third party inspectors may not be available to provide you with timely service, the OPS will provide regulated owners and operators with a 60-day extension to any compliance-related deadline that occurred in March or April of 2020.    

As many of our staff will be working remotely over the next few weeks, there may be slight delays to our normal response times.  If you are experiencing a delay in response time, please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

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.
