Texas Statewide and Field Rules
HOW CLOSE CAN YOU LOCATE YOUR PRODUCING LATERAL TO AN ADJACENT TRACT? HOW MANY ACRES CAN YOU ASSIGN TO YOUR PRORATION UNIT?
Texas, like most states, has an intricate system of both Statewide and Special Field Rules defining the regulatory requirements for drilling and producing an oil and gas well in Texas. Because Texas is a vast, diverse state spanning close to 1000 miles, the field rules are intended to provide flexibility at the local level to guide production opportunities based on the geologic realities at hand. But be careful – what you can do in Reeves County will differ greatly from Panola County.
