Thanksgiving Holiday Closure

The Railroad Commission of Texas will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 22 through Friday, Nov. 24 in observance of Thanksgiving. The RRC will reopen for regular business Monday morning, Nov. 27. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.

Post-Permitting

1.  Annual Monitoring Report (Form H-10)
  • Every well with a valid injection permit must file an annual monitoring report unless the well is actively producing and files an annual production status report (Form W-10 or G-10) instead.
2.  Mechanical Integrity Test (Form H-5)
  • A mechanical integrity test (MIT) must be performed before any fluids are injected into the well.
  • Once the well is converted to injection, an MIT must be performed periodically for the life of the permit.
3.  Completion report (Form W-2 or G-1)
  • File a completion report within 30 days of conversion to reflect the actual completion of the well.
  • Commission staff will review the actual completion against the proposed completion in the permit application. 

    GUIDELINES FOR FILING COMPLETION REPORTS:

    • Fill in required dates and permit numbers. Be certain injection into a productive zone for disposal purposes is shown under injection rather than disposal authority.
    • The well location blocks are to be completed on both front and back sides of Form W-2 or G-1.
    • Casing and liner record must be completed.
    • Presence of packer and packer depth must be included.
    • The "producing" interval must be included. Show the perforated intervals here, not the permitted intervals.
    • Please include all cement squeeze information.
    • Please indicate if the well is dually completed for disposal and production.
