ENCANA:The Post Independent has been reporting that EnCana Oil & Gas USA has received Garfield County approval to build 31 temporary employee housing units that could accommodate up to 750 people. While that’s technically the case, EnCana says it won’t house that many people all at once. Instead, it plans to move a smaller number of “man camps” among the 31 locations. By year’s end it expects to be operating as many as 15 camps housing 18-20 people each, for a total of about 270 people.
