EnCana’s ‘field of dreams’ has Colorado locals crying the blues

EnCana’s ‘field of dreams’ has Colorado locals crying the blues by Dave Ebner, July 15, 2005, Globe and Mail
Some folks are singing the EnCana Bluegrass Blues in northwestern Colorado, blaming the Calgary natural gas giant for tainting the environment and bringing far too much development to the rugged region. “And how did they poison my water and hay by drilling for gas in the ground?” goes a twangy line on the website of the local Garfield County Democratic Party. The mp3 of EnCana Bluegrass Blues sits alongside a parody of EnCana Corp.’s slogan, twisting “energy for people” into “pollution for the people.”…Gwyn Morgan, EnCana president and chief executive officer, said the company is a quality operator, adding that there are naturally occurring gas seeps “all over” what those in the energy business call the Piceance Basin. Mr. Morgan further added that the company’s seep in 2004 happened in an unusual geological situation. “We ended up with a seep in a creek,” Mr. Morgan said in an interview at EnCana’s Calgary headquarters.
