RRC Accepting Comments on Proposal to Discontinue Oil and Gas Forms C-1, C-2, G-9, GT-3, MD-1, R-4 and R-7
The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) is accepting public comment on a proposal to discontinue the following oil and gas forms. The comment period will close at noon on Monday, October 10, 2016.
Form C-1, Carbon Black Plant Report
Form C-2, Application for Permit to Operate a Carbon Black Plant
Form G-9, Gas Cycling Report
Form GT-3, Monthly Geothermal Gatherer's Report
Form MD-1, Optional Operator Market Demand Forecast for Gas Well Gas in Prorated Fields
Form R-4, Gas Processing Plant Report of Gas Injected
Form R-7, Pressure Maintenance & Repressuring Plant Report
The proposal to discontinue these forms is a part of the Texas Oilfield Relief Initiative. The forms were identified as obsolete during a review of the all RRC forms required for permit applications and reporting purposes. These forms are not referenced in RRC enabling statutes or RRC rules and either are no longer required to be filed with the RRC or request information that is not necessary to the RRC’s regulatory functions. Discontinuing the forms will reduce regulatory and administrative burdens on the oil and gas industry and RRC staff.
