How do you plan to balance oil, gas, and mining interests with protection of natural resources and the environment?

Mike Wright

Railroad Commissioner


If a rule or regulation is requested to be waived but has the intended purpose of protecting natural resources or the environment, the operator would need to submit a plan to monitor the activities surrounding the natural resources or environment that the rule or regulation is intended to protect. This would allow early detection of any possible negative impact on natural resources or the environment before it becomes a major issue.
