June 2020



Update Volume


Update Issue


The New Mexico Oil Conservation Division proposed to amend N.M. Code R. §§, 19.15.16, and 19.15.34. The amendments would, among other things, conform the definition of “produced water” with the definition found under the Oil and Gas Act, and add a section requiring the filing of a water use report for a hydraulically fractured well that provides the portion of the water used in fracturing, which is potable, nonpotable, or recycled produced water. A hearing will be held July 30, 2020, and comments are due that same date. See
