Form R-32

Application for Exception to Statewide Rule 32

May 2012 August 2020

The proposed amendment to the Statewide Rule 32 Exception Data Sheet will improve the effectiveness of the RRC’s Rule 32 exception program by:

Requiring operators to more thoroughly document the circumstances surrounding the need to flare gas;

Providing the RRC accurate information to assess compliance with the flare/vent authority; and

Encouraging transparency in understanding the broader needs and reasons for flaring and/or venting during oil and gas production operations in Texas.
T-Bar Adopted  September 4, 2020

 H-5

Disposal/Injection Well Pressure Test Report

June 1985   March 2020  

Staff is proposing changes to Form H-5, Disposal/Injection Well Pressure Test Report. The proposed amendment to Form H-5 will require the operator to report the top of cement (TOC) depth in feet for the surface casing and long string casing to Box No. 15.  This proposed change complements the Commission’s implementation of the new on-line Form H-5, a part of the Oilfield Relief Initiative, which went live on February 2, 2020. Also, staff proposes several minor revisions to the instructions to Form H-5, and these include: clarifying that all tests must be filed, including failed tests (see Instruction No. 2); informing operators that electronic forms may be filed through RRC Online and removing the requirement to file paper forms in duplicate (see Instruction No. 3); and adding the word “analog” to clarify what type of pressure recorder is acceptable (see Instruction No. 4[a]).

  Adopted February 18, 2020
