How is authorization obtained to file electronically through the RRC Online System?
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.
If I fill out a SAD Form and submit it to the RRC, will I be required to submit electronically?
When I use the online screens to enter a report, can I use the "back arrow" button on my browser to return to a previous screen?
When I log into the RRC Online System, I do not have access to all the applications that are supposed to be available. What is the problem?
I am a designated Security Administrator, but when I log into the RRC Online System using the User ID assigned to me by the Railroad Commission, I cannot access any applications other than Account Administration. What do I need to do to get access to other oil and gas applications?
See the Creating Accounts and Maintaining Filer Accounts pages for more information on creating Filer accounts and assigning the necessary filing rights.
How do I file more than just one form using the RRC Online System?
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.
