Protesting a Salt Water Disposal Well with Railroad Commission


#1

Hi. Has anyone had success protesting a Salt Water Disposal Well with Railroad Commission in Reeves/Ward/Pecos Counties, Texas? We have a pre-hearing and then hearing coming up soon with the RRC. We are in need of some advice on what argument works or what expert I should call to help us succeed. Thank you!

It would depend on the reason why you’re protesting the salt water disposal well. The usual arguments are that it’s in close proximity from a place of residence, concern of seismicity, etc. You could contact a professional engineer who may discuss ways in which to discuss your legal argument since professional engineers typically testify at RRC hearings. Legal counsel also provide regulatory counsel as well.
