RRC Online System FAQs


The RRC Online System provides electronic filing and processing capability for certain oil and gas forms. Electronic filing options in this system generally include online filing and EDI filing by uploading data.

Use of these electronic filing options requires a User ID that is obtained by filing a Security Administrator Designation (SAD) form (pdf format) and following subsequent instructions for assigning security access to company employees.

The RRC Online System allows the user to file forms online using one or more of the following methods:

Online Filing Over the Internet

The data is entered directly into online screens and submitted to the RRC.

EDI - File Upload

Your company must submit a Security Administrator Designation (SAD) form (pdf format). The purpose of this form is to establish a Security Administrator for a company or individual who wants to file reports or applications online or through one of the EDI options available through the RRC Online System. This form must be filled out and mailed or emailed to the RRC. See the Becoming a Security Administrator page for more information.

Once the RRC approves the Security Administrator Designation, the Security Administrator will be notified of his or her assigned User ID. The Security Administrator can then further distribute security by assigning additional User IDs to employees within the company (Filer accounts) and designating which forms they are authorized to file electronically with the RRC. DO NOT FILE A SAD FORM FOR EACH USER. See the Creating Accounts and Maintaining Filer Accounts pages for more information about creating Filer accounts and assigning filing rights.

No, users who submit a SAD Form and have a SAD Form on file are not required to file electronically.

No, do not use the back arrow button on your browser. To navigate within an application, use the buttons provided within the application. Using a back arrow button on your browser may create errors within the application.

When you log into the system, you will only be able to select those applications for which your company's designated Security Administrator has given you filing privileges. Contact your company's Security Administrator if you have any questions about the applications you can access.

When you log into the system using the User ID assigned to you as a Security Administrator, you will only have access to Account Administration screens. You cannot use your Security Administrator User ID to electronically file reports. If you have two roles, one as a Security Administrator and one as a Filer, you must create a different User ID for yourself as a Filer and assign yourself the necessary filing rights.

See the Creating Accounts and Maintaining Filer Accounts pages for more information on creating Filer accounts and assigning the necessary filing rights.

The organization's Security Administrator controls which applications are available to a specific Filer. To file a particular report or application, your Security Administrator must assign that filing right to you.

See the Maintaining Filer Accounts page for information about how a Security Administrator assigns filing rights to a Filer.
