Oil and gas releases from 10 different sites in flooded areas of Colorado are being tracked by state and federal regulations.
Two of the releases were "significant" and the remaining eight are being classified as minor, according to an update from the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
Minor spills are considered sheens coming off of a piece of equipment rather than a measurable volume of petroleum product.
Anadarko Petroleum Corp. reported two releases Wednesday: a release of 125 barrels — about 5,225 gallons — into the South Platte near Milliken and a release of 323 barrels — about 13,500 gallons — from a tank farm on the St. Vrain River near Firestone.
It appears the oil left the site in floodwaters, the commission said.
Both releases involve condensate, a mixture of oil and water, according to Matthew Allen, a spokesman for the Denver office of the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
"We are back in the field today looking for on-going releases," Allen said. "So far we haven't found any of those."
