According to a recent report by Jason Spiess of The Crude Life Media Network, the ND Oil and Gas Division presented an order of proposed final administrative rules to the North Dakota Industrial Commission on Tuesday. The Commission voted 3-0 to approve the rule change order.
Changes to the administrative code include proposals to require sundry notices for spills not responded to with adequate resources, site assessments before and after reclamation if deemed necessary by the director, and changes to what is required on Royalty Information Statements.
The Commission approved changes which require companies to submit a sundry notice when fluids are not properly cleaned up on well sites and facilities. Additionally, the Commission approved changes for requirements that must be provided to mineral owners on a Royalty Information Statement. The changes include delaying implementation of this rule until July 1, 2019 in order to allow the industry to develop necessary software to comply with the changes.
