Energy exploration in Colorado has increased in the last 24 months. Previously abandoned oil wells are now pumping as close to capacity as possible. Low oil prices in the 1990s caused many of these wells to be closed. Natural gas exploration is also increasing again in Colorado. Colorado and the Rocky Mountain have rich reserves of natural gas. Energy related investments and companies supporting them will increase significantly over the next five years. Wind energy is positioned to be a increasing source of energy in Colorado. Many wind energy generators can be seen Northeast of Sterling. Weld County is a hotbed of mineral rights' leasing and drilling activity at this time.
The University of Colorado Medical Center, including Children's hospital, continues to grow and expand on East Colfax in Aurora (the former site of Fitzsimmons Army hospital campus). Bioterrorism, chemical attack, nuclear attack are now being addressed as well as disaster plans for mass trauma. Denver International Airport has implemented new airport security rules regarding passenger travel as well as air cargo. Additional gates for United Airlines and Southwest Airlines are in planning or have been completed.
Foreign-owned companies with USA headquarters in Colorado include Corporate Express, Inc., Great West Life and Annuity Insurance, Gates Corporation,Gambro, Encana Oil and Gas, etc. These companies employ thousands of Colorado residents.
