In addition to researching drilling permit applications that are pending approval and applications that have been approved by the RRC, users can now search for applications submitted to the agency.


The Drilling Permit (W-1) Query is available via Online Research Queries on the RRC website.

If you have questions about the query, contact the RRC at drillingpermits-info@rrc.texas.gov.
