Renewal Plan for Oil and Gas Regulation
Thursday, April 7th, at 11:30 a.m.
Petroleum Club, 12th floor, 5060 California Avenue, Bakersfield
In October of 2015, the Department of Conservation and Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources published a document defining a sweeping set of modernization at DOGGR titled “Renewal Plan for Oil and Gas Regulation”. This plan was authored to address recognized opportunities to improve the performance of the Division through four distinct objectives:
- Regulatory Overhaul
- New Regulations for New Realities
- Modernizing Data Management
- Ensure High Quality Workforce
Adopting and implementing this plan, along with complying with new commitments to the US EPA and new state and local legislative measures has resulted in major programmatic and organizational changes in the Division that affect DOGGR priorities and operations and how oil and gas fields are operated in California.
This talk will address:
- the objectives and progress of the DOGGR Renewal Plan
- an overview of the commitments to the EPA
- a summary of new state and local legislation passed and pending
- how these are impacting or potentially will impact oil and gas operations in the Inland District and Statewide.
