This chapter pays attention to Colorado—described as being ‘at the forefront of a national conversation on how close oil and gas operations should be to homes, schools, and neighborhoods’—in considering unconventional oil and gas development near people in the area. It also explores what social license to operate (SLO) in this context. The chapter concludes that the current approach to resolving the key issues is inadequate; hence, it proposes a new approach centred on the SLO. When the process of establishing and maintaining a SLO is done well, the risk of disruption is minimized and the opportunity of business success is maximized.

Keywords:   Colorado, oil operations, gas operations, social licence, SLO, business success
