The proper form is determined based on whether the proposed injection interval is deemed productive or not productive of oil and gas.
File Form W-14, Application to Dispose Oil & Gas Waste by Injection into a Porous Formation Not Productive of Oil or Gas, for disposal into formations that are non-productive of oil, gas, or geothermal resources. See 16 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §3.9 (Statewide Rule 9) for rule requirements.
File Forms H-1, Application to Inject Fluid into a Reservoir Productive of Oil & Gas, and H-1A, Injection Well Data for H-1 Application, for injection or disposal into formations that are productive of oil, gas, or geothermal resources. See 16 TAC §3.46 (Statewide Rule 46) for rule requirements.
NOTE: The Railroad Commission of Texas (Commission) deems a formation “productive” if there is current or past production in the same correlative interval within a two mile radius.
Oil and gas forms are available for download from the Commission website.
