General Monitoring and Reporting Requirements

  1. Rules 9, 46, and 96 (Form H-10) - Operators of disposal/injection wells must monitor the injection pressure and volume at least monthly and report the results annually on Form H-10. 

  2. Rules 95 and 97 (Form H-10H) - Operators of hydrocarbon storage wells in salt formations must monitor the injection pressure and net volume injected or withdrawn at least monthly and report the results annually on Form H-10H. 

  3. Filing procedure:
    • A Form H-10 or H-10H for each well is computer generated and mailed out to the operator before the end of the reporting cycle.  
    • Additional copies may be obtained from the RRC website using the Public H-10 Query.  
    • The Form H-10 or H-10H must be returned by the operator two months after the end of the reporting cycle.  
    • In addition, both Forms H-10 and H-10H include instructions on the back of the form.

  4. Reporting cycles:
    • Since July 1995, reporting is staggered by field. All Forms H-10 and H-10H in a field will be due the same month as the production status reports (Forms W-10 and G-10) are due for that field.
