Representatives from Quicksilver Resources, Inc., asked the Moffat County Commission Thursday to approve certain permits to expand their operations in Moffat County. Citing production from its Stoddard Well off Fawn Creek Lane about five miles south of Craig and plans to bring five more wells online in that area before the end of the summer, Quicksilver officials applied for a conditional use permit to construct a proposed tank battery called the Stoddard Central Tank Battery. The new facility would be tied into all six wells slated for the Stoddard and Simoes properties, and would be used to hold and transport oil. When asked by Commissioner Tom Mathers whether Quicksilver was going to create an official field, Scott Latka, production superintendent for Quicksilver, said “it’s possible.”
