RRC Adopts Revised and New CNG and LNG License and License Renewal and Container Manufacturer Registration Forms

March 09, 2021

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) has adopted revisions to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Form 1001, Application for CNG License or License Renewal and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Form 2001, Application for LNG License or License Renewal. The form revisions are related to recent amendments to Texas Natural Resources Code Chapter 116 and 16 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapters 13 and 14, respectively, that went into effect February 15, 2021. The revised form assists applicants with the initial licensing process and assists current licensees with the renewal process.

In addition, the RRC has adopted new forms for manufacturers of CNG and LNG containers to register with the agency. The form was created as a result of recent amendments to Texas Natural Resources Code Chapter 116, which require container manufacturers to register with the RRC instead of being licensed. Recent changes to 16 TAC Chapters 13 and 14, that went into effect February 15, 2021, included the adoption of CNG Form 1001M, Application for CNG Container Manufacturer Registration and LNG Form 2001M, Application for LNG Container Manufacturer Registration. The new forms allow applicants for initial registration to complete the process with guidance and assists current manufacturer registrants with the renewal process.

The revised and new forms are available for download from the RRC website at

What we do

The Oversight and Safety Division has responsibility for Alternative Fuels, Gas Services and Pipeline Safety. This reorganization in January 2015 will bring even greater efficiency and consistency to these operations within the Commission, allowing the agency to better serve the state.

The Railroad Commission of Texas (Commission) is the state agency responsible for regulating the safe storage, transportation and use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG, Propane, Butane), Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), pursuant to the Texas Natural Resources Code (TNRC). The Commission has also adopted regulations for each fuel type under the Texas Administrative Code, Title 16, Chapters 9, 13, and 14, respectively.

The Alternative Fuels Safety (AFS) department enforces both the state statutes and the Commission’s regulations on these fuels, by conducting safety evaluations of stationary facilities and mobile equipment, licensing companies engaged in alternative fuel activities, and providing training to individuals working in the alternative fuels industries.
