Description (excerpt):

The Business Research Division (BRD) has studied the contributions of the oil and gas industry in Colorado since 2010. In 2014, the BRD began analyzing policy and price impacts on the oil and gas industry and the implications on the state economy using the REMI model with support from the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, the Denver South Economic Development Partnership, and the Common Sense Policy Roundtable. Three papers describe policy and price impacts:

  • Colorado Oil and Gas Industry: Updated Economic Assessment of Colorado Oil and Gas Ballot Initiatives in 2014 (September 2014)
  • Oil and Gas Prices – the Upside and the Downside (January 2015)
  • Colorado Oil and Gas Industry: Updated Economic Assessment of Colorado Oil and Gas Prices (August 2015)

This paper refines the work completed in 2014 and 2015, isolating potential policy impacts on production in Colorado. This research conducted for the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, the Denver South Economic Development Partnership, and the Common Sense Policy Roundtable.
