Document Number: E7-3846
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-06
Agency: Department of the Interior, Minerals Management Service
MMS proposes to amend the regulations regarding oil and natural gas production. This is a complete rewrite of these regulations, addressing issues such as production rates, burning oil, and venting and flaring natural gas. The proposed rule would eliminate most restrictions on production rates and clarify flaring and venting limits. The proposed rule was written using plain language, so it will be easier to read and understand.
