Railroad Commission Updates Guidelines for Processing Minor Permits
Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. – Texas Environmental Update, 2009
Earlier this month, the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) published an update to its Guidelines for Processing Minor Permits Associated with Statewide Rule 8 (“Minor Permit Guidelines”). The updated Minor Permit Guidelines address the application and permit requirements for minor permits for land farming water base drilling fluids and cuttings and land treating oily waste.
Among other things, the application requirements for land farming water base mud and land treating oily waste have been amended to clarify that minor permits may only be issued to the generator of the waste and that no more than one minor permit will be issued for one disposal site. Additional application content requirements are established. The updated Minor Permit Guidelines also include analytical guidelines and notice and protest guidelines.
For additional information about the Minor Permit Guidelines, please see the RRC website at http://www.rrc.state.tx.us/.
