WOGCC - Full Commission Hearings
WOGCC Docket #1533-2020
Samson v. Elephant - 8M Case
As of December 20, 2019, the Chapter 3, Section 8(m) amendment was adopted. This “new rule” provides an owner the opportunity to operate a DSU if the current operator hasn’t drilled within the 2-year term of their APD(s).
WOGCC Docket #59-2021
Testimony was provided in a WOGCC examiner hearing to obtain permission to surface commingle production from the Dry Piney Unit. The proposed method of commingling would divert all production to a common consolidated tank battery, preventing waste, protecting correlative rights, and reducing the surface footprint.
Moneta Divide Madison Disposal
The WOGCC Commission approved Class II disposal into the Madison formation for the Marlin 29-21. GGA provided engineering analysis and testified to the requirements of the WOGCC Rules and Regulations of Chapter 4, Sections 5 and 12. Testimony by Bonnie S. Percy, P.E. proved the subject well will not impact or cause damage to shallow aquifers, and it is technologically impractical for nearby municipalities to utilize the subject well as a source for potable water.
