THE STATE OF COLORADO 

Introduction

            Mountains were the controlling factor for the always-restrained development of natural gas in this State. Mining and cattle dominated the economy of the formative years of the manufactured gas industry and the rail net never served well the vast coal fields of north-central Colorado. The Front-of-Rockies urbanizing strip had manufactured gas and it was mainly coal, save for the pioneering oil-gas plant constructed at Colorado Springs by the westward-moving Leon P. Lowe, in 1889.

            The first reliable supply of natural gas for Colorado as brought into Fort Collins in 1925. The first natural gas for Denver arrived from Texas in 1929 and more came down from Wyoming soon after. In all of the Rocky Mountains, Wehrle (1935) reports only four manufactured gas plants remained operating in 1935, due to the completeness of natural gas distribution.
