Code tit. 43:XVII, §§3 and 33, regarding regulations for hydrocarbon storage wells in salt dome cavities and regulations for class III (solution-mining) injection wells, respectively. The amendments would clarify the definitions of types of injections wells, the permitting process for wells, site assessment, development and operation requirements, among other changes. Written comments will be accepted until 4 pm on November 9, 2015. See http://www.doa.la.gov/osr/REG/1510/1510.pdf (pp. 2231-43).
