Oil and Gas Activities

While the regulation of oil and gas activities in Texas falls primarily under the jurisdiction of the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC), the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) plays an important role in the areas of air quality, surface water management, water quality, and waste management.

The TCEQ is offering FREE workshops to the oil and gas industry on how to properly evaluate and report emission events. To be placed on the waiting list for one of these workshops, complete the registration form at Emission Event Workshop Waiting List.
