Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Role in Protection of Fresh Water
Randy Ruedrich - Commissioner
The Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission regulates subsurface oil and gas operations on all federal, state and private lands within the state. Protecting fresh water from contamination is a primary aspect of our Alaskan oil and gas regulations. EPA has delegated primacy to AOGCC to administer the Clean Drinking Water Act Underground Injection Control Program for Alaskan oil and gas operations. The AOGCC’s authority is exercised through the issuance of permits and orders approving oil and gas operations. Orders relating to subsurface activities require public notice with an opportunity for a public hearing. Commercial Coal bed methane development operations will require several Conservation Orders establishing operating rules for each development area.
The entire set of AOGCC Regulations can be found at:
If you would like to receive Public Hearing Announcements and Copies of Commission Orders, contact our Special Staff Assistant at email@example.com.
