Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission

This legislation authorizes the State to join the Interstate Compact for the Conservation of Oil and Gas. The Compact is an agreement that has been entered into by 30 oil- and gas-producing states, as well as eight associate states and 10 international affiliates (including seven Canadian provinces). Members participate in the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, which functions as a forum for governors, state appointees and key policy staff focusing on key oil and natural gas issues, and tracks, evaluates, and disseminates information on state activities and best practices.
