Administrative Review - Basic Filing Requirements
This part of the permit review verifies that all rule and statutory requirements have been met for a permit to be issued.
Organization Report (Form P-5) - The applicant must have a current organization report on file with the Commission. The Commission's mainframe database is checked to verify that the organization report is on file and current.
Certificate of Compliance (Form P-4) - The applicant must be the current operator of the lease. If a Form P-4 has been filed on the lease, the applicant must be shown as the operator on the current Form P-4. For a new lease, the operator will be required to file Form P-4 along with the completion report (Form W-2/G-1) on the injection/disposal well.
Injection/Disposal Well Inventory - The Commission's mainframe database is checked to determine whether the application is for a new permit or an amendment of an existing permit. This check determines which application attachments are required. All attachments are required when filing for a new permit, others may not be required depending on the type of the amendment.
Beginning February 2, 2005, permit applications will be administratively denied if the subject well is under pipeline severance or seal-in for Rule or permit violations on that well. This policy does not apply to permit amendment applications that, if granted, would return the subject well to compliance.
