Monitoring and Enforcement Plan

The Texas Legislature (House Bill 1818, 85th Legislature, Regular Session, 2017) directed the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) to develop an annual plan to assess the most effective use of its limited resources to protect public safety and minimize damage to the environment. The RRC will always strive to strengthen its capabilities to track, measure, and analyze the effectiveness of its oil and gas monitoring and enforcement program.

The purpose of this plan is to define and communicate the Oil and Gas Division’s strategic priorities for its monitoring and enforcement efforts. The plan confirms many of the division’s current priorities as well as establishing direction for data collection, stakeholder input, and new priorities for fiscal year 2024.
