BP’s move is a win for Colorado
“Energy company moving Lower 48 o∞ce and 200 employees to Denver,” Nov. 15 business story.
The news of BP’s Lower 48 onshore business operations headquarters relocating to Denver is a monumental victory, and should be received as such.
If Colorado is able to come together for the advancement of safe, efficient oil and gas development, it will continue to draw business to our state and become an oil and gas hub. It is time to put aside fracking moratoriums in Colorado towns and cities, cease petitions for anti-fracking ballot measures moving forward, and stand as one state committed to responsible energy development. We must foster a supportive environment for this industry. A united front is the best way to invite jobs and expand economic avenues.
Coloradans are paving a way for the future success of the oil and gas industry and now all that is left to do is roll out the red carpet and welcome businesses with open arms.
