The waste produced by crude oil and natural gas exploration and production, also called oil and gas E&P waste, are subject to numerous environmental regulations, but specifically those under Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as well as state-specific regulations.
The increased prevalence of hydraulic fracturing to extract oil and gas, and the potential dangers these activities pose to public health, has led to an increased effort in state legislatures to develop more and more stringent regulations.
As a company that keeps oil and gas E&P companies compliant with consulting, engineering and monitoring services, it’s our job to remain up to date with regulations. You can reach out to us if you have any questions or check out the relevant resources below.
What are the Oil and Gas E&P Waste Regulations in Your State?
What are the oil and gas E&P waste regulations in your state? If you’re not sure, you’re in luck. The Environmental Protection Agency has compiled laws on a state-by-state basis.

But it’s still the best available resource for a cursory overview of oil and gas E&P waste regulations, check it out here.
Oil and Gas E&P Waste Best Practices
While your company obviously has to comply by all state regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency has also put together a collection of oil and gas E&P waste best practices, which are voluntary but encouraged in order to stay compliant. The list can can be seen in its entirety here.
