1.  Application Forms
  • Forms H-1 and H-1A. (Injection into a Reservoir Productive of Oil or Gas, Rule 46)

NOTE: 

A productive reservoir is a reservoir with past or current production within a 2-mile radius of the proposed injection well. 

If any part of the proposed injection zone is or ever has been productive, then the permit application should be filed on Form H-1/H-1A. 

Use the current forms. Using older forms may result in requests for additional information and corresponding delays in permitting


  • Form W-14, (Injection into a Formation Not Productive of Oil or Gas, Rule 9)

 3.  Where to File

4.  Preliminary Review

  • 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. 

NOTE: 

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.
