Natural gas drilling permits issued in Garfield County are on pace to set a record for the year.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission reports that about 1,800 permits have been issued in the county, according to the Post Independent. The Commission Director, Brian Macke, says the number could be as high as 2,350 by the end of the year. That compares with a little more than 1,800 permits issued in Garfield county in 2006.
