The EPA and the State of New Mexico release draft white paper

Oil and Natural Gas Produced Water for public review and input

 

Oil and Natural Gas Produced Water Governance – a draft white paper

In July 2018, the EPA and the State of New Mexico entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to clarify the existing regulatory and permitting frameworks related to the way produced water from oil and natural gas extraction activities can be reused, recycled, and renewed for other purposes. In November 2018 the EPA and the State of New Mexico concurrently released a draft white paper, Oil and Natural Gas Produced Water Governance in the State of New Mexico, for review and public input. Public input was accepted until December 10, 2018.
