TXOGA Statement on Increased Seismic Activity

September 29, 2021

The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association:

“The Texas Oil & Gas Association respects the Railroad Commission’s (RRC) notice to operators in the areas of increased seismic activity and gathering more data to determine the level of appropriate injection volumes is certainly reasonable. The Texas oil and natural gas industry is working with the RRC to address this issue and strongly supported the Texas legislature’s creation of the Produced Water Consortium, by Senator Charles Perry and Representative Dustin Burrows, last session that promotes innovation in the responsible development of our state’s natural resources. Operators are continuously looking for the best methods to reuse and recycle produced water and are encouraged by the progress being made.”
