TXOGA Applauds Industry and RRC For Continued Collaboration on Seismicity

March 2, 2022 Yesterday the Railroad Commission of Texas released an Operator-Led Response Plan (OLRP) for addressing seismicity associated with produced water or saltwater disposal wells for oil and natural gas drilling activity. The OLRP was created by saltwater disposal well operators within the Northern Culberson-Reeves Seismic Response Area (SRA) in the Permian Basin and…

June 21, 2021 AUSTIN – Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil & Gas Association, issued the following statement after SB 601, which creates the Texas Produced Water Consortium at Texas Tech University to study the beneficial use of produced water specifically focusing on the economics, technology and impact on environmental and public health, was…

January 15, 2021 The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association: “The EPA’s approval of the State of Texas’ request for NPDES program authorization will allow the Texas oil and natural gas industry to continue to innovate and find new ways to treat wastewater for recycle and…

November 18, 2015 There’s no evidence of water-based contaminants seeping into drinking water wells atop a vast oil and gas field in northeastern Colorado, according to Colorado State University scientists working to protect and inform citizens about the safety of their water. Ken Carlson, professor of civil and environmental engineering, has led a series of…

November 18, 2015 In what the Yale University described as the the largest study of its kind, a Yale-led investigation “found no evidence that trace contamination of organic compounds in drinking water wells near the Marcellus Shale in northeastern Pennsylvania came from deep hydraulic fracturing shale horizons, underground storage tanks, well casing failures, or surface…

Properly conducted research, which has analyzed millions of air samples in Texas, finds that oil and gas activity does not pose public health concerns.  Texas has the nation’s most comprehensive air monitoring systems in the nation.  The so-called “research” activists cite are authored by known anti-oil and gas activists, funded by anti-oil and gas third parties.…

Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is releasing its long awaited, five-year study, which finds “hydraulic fracturing activities have not led to widespread, systemic impacts to drinking water resources.” As many have noted, this is the most important study on hydraulic fracturing to come out over the past five years – a fact that EPA’s…

Once considered hopelessly dependent on foreign imports, the United States has recently emerged as the world’s largest oil and gas producer. The “shale revolution”—made possible by technologies such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking)—has changed not only America’s energy landscape, but also the global energy market. But in some regions, concerns about water use…

Wells are required by law to be constructed with multiple layers of industrial-grade steel casing (pipe) which is surrounded by cement to create a redundant safeguard for underground freshwater supplies. The Environmental Protection Agency recently completed a comprehensive five year study of fracking’s effects on drinking water and concluded that fracking has not led to…
