The provisions of this chapter shall not prevent emergency well work at any time. Emergency well work shall mean any sudden or unforeseen situation that requires immediate action to preserve life, property or the environment and may include well blowout, loss of circulation, rig safety or other situations deemed to be an emergency by the state department of oil and gas or the city oil coordinator. In the event that any person believes an emergency exists, they may take immediate corrective action and simultaneously shall notify the city oil coordinator of such emergency and corrective action. If the city oil coordinator determines that no emergency exists or that the corrective action is inappropriate, the coordinator shall so notify the person taking action and such person shall comply with the determination and order of the coordinator.
