Weekend Maintenance

The RRC website will be undergoing maintenance over the weekend. Please be patient as some of the pages may be slow in responding.

Drone Program



The Railroad Commission of Texas has launched a statewide drone inspection team. The drones will help inspectors to quickly respond and inspect sites that may be unsafe or inaccessible during emergencies such as fires, flooding and other natural disasters.

The RRC is also a member of the State Emergency Operations Center. The agency’s drone fleet can be a critical resource in helping state emergency response by providing aerial views of inaccessible areas.
