HB 2259/HB 3134 - Inactive Well Requirements
Inactive Well Requirements under HB 2259 and HB 3134
In 2009, The 81st Texas Legislature enacted House Bill 2259 (HB 2259), establishing new requirements for oil and gas operators related to surface equipment removal, as well as additional requirements for the approval of plugging extensions for inactive wells. These changes will affect all operators who have inactive wells in their inventory.
The Commission has created this page as a central point for information and data resources as these changes are implemented.
