In the oil and gas industry, a large amount of salt water is collected during the process of oil production. In Texas, for example, the salt water must be disposed of properly — a process that is overseen by the Railroad Commission of Texas.
The Commission is the state agency with primary regulatory jurisdiction over the oil and natural gas industry, pipeline transporters, natural gas and hazardous liquid pipeline industry, natural gas utilities, the LP-gas industry, and coal and uranium surface mining operations. The Commission exists under provisions of the Texas Constitution and exercises its statutory responsibilities under state and federal laws for regulation and enforcement of the state’s energy industries. Zones are created by the Commission for disposing of the salt water, a process that requires salt water disposal pumps.
