RRC Adopts Revisions to Form H-5, Disposal/Injection Well Pressure Test Report

11/04/2020

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) has adopted revisions to Form H-5, Disposal/Injection Well Pressure Test Report.

The revised form will require the operator to report the top of cement (TOC) depth in feet for the surface casing and long string casing to Box No. 15. Including this information on the paper and online versions of the Form H-5 will save RRC staff time and resources when reviewing these forms.

The form revisions will be implemented immediately on the online form submitted via the RRC Online System; and the TOC requirement will be enforced for the paper form during the next Form H-5 submission cycle, which begins January 31, 2021.

Also, several minor revisions to the Form H-5 instructions were adopted.

  • Clarifying that all tests must be filed, including failed tests (see Instruction No. 2).
  • Informing that electronic forms may be filed through the RRC Online System and removing the requirement to file paper forms in duplicate (see Instruction No. 3).
  • Adding the word “analog” to clarify what type of pressure recorder is acceptable (see Instruction No. 4[a]).

The form is available for download from the RRC website at https://rrc.texas.gov/oil-gas/forms/oil-gas-forms-library/oil-gas-forms-in-alphabetical-order/.
