List of Oil and Gas rules being prepared for filing with JCARR (not including the
well construction rules)
22 rules with amendments
14 No-Change rules
Comments Requested on Draft Rules
The Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management is requesting comments on proposed amendments to 22 of its existing rules, which have been drafted pursuant to Senate Bill 165, effective June 30, 2010 and to complete the required five-year review of these rules. In addition, the division proposes to rescind seven of its exising rules and to continue 14 of its existing rules with no changes. These changes are in addition to the well construction rules that have recently been put out for comment.
Comments on the draft proposed amendments, rescissions and no-change rules are to be submitted to email@example.com by December 23, 2011.
Division staff will review all comments and make necessary changes in January 2012. The formal rule filing with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) is expected by the spring of 2012.
Please note that in the attached PDF document, words that are blue and underlined are proposed new rule language, and words that are red and overstruck like this are proposed to be removed. Words in grayscale like this show that part of the currently effective rule is being moved to a new paragraph; in their new location they are written in bold print like this.
