How would you address the various safety issues concerning pipelines, and oil and gas production?

Christi Craddick

Railroad Commissioner


The Railroad Commission’s statutory duty is to prevent waste of the state’s natural resources, protect the correlative rights of mineral owners, and oversee the safe production of oil and gas. Enforcement of our rules, including permitting and reporting requirements and field inspections, provides the tools we need to successfully carry out our mission.
