In observance of the Christmas and New Year holidays, the RRC will be closed Monday, December 24, 2018 and will reopen for regular business on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. We will respond to public inquiries at that time.
If you are contacting the RRC with a complaint or to report an incident, please call our 24-hour, toll-free emergency line at 844-773-0305 for immediate assistance.
Additionally, if you are an operator with an urgent need, such as processing an oil and gas drilling permit, you can locate the appropriate contact information using the RRC website at:
The links in the boxes allow users to research oil & gas production, drilling permits, well records, gas utility and pipeline information, surface coal/lignite mining permit information and other related queries.
Note: The online research queries are intended for use by individuals needing specific information from the Railroad Commission of Texas. The use of automated tools to retrieve volumes of data can cause severe degradation of Railroad Commission of Texas systems. If the query system detects that data is being retrieved using an automated tool, the Railroad Commission of Texas will end the session for that user.
Requirements for Accessing Online Research Queries
The Railroad Commission of Texas recommends accessing the online research queries using a broadband Internet connection (Cable Modem, DSL, Fiber, Wireless, Satellite are common examples). A dial-up connection may work, but performance will not be desirable.
