Troubled Colorado oil and gas operator dodges cleanup deadline and $2 million fine


Some breathing room was offered by a Judge to Colorado oil and gas operator K.P. Kauffman, staying an order by regulators for the company to remediate 78 sites and pay a $2 million fine.

Kauffman was under an Aug. 1 order to stop operating in Colorado but a judge agreed to stay that order while the company sues to block it from taking effect reported the Colorado Sun.
