The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has made the most significant changes to the regulations concerning oil
and natural gas production facilities and handling facilities operating within the State of Texas. The major initial impact of these
changes will be felt for operations which are currently and will be operating within 23 counties located in North Texas. The
regulations are referred to as the Permit by Rule (PBR) and the Standard Permit. Information specific to the changes are readily
available from the TCEQ and for numerous resources that have an interest in the Oil and Gas industries. The PBR and Standard
Permit requirements have gone into effect as of April 1, 2011. These changes have a dramatic effect on most operations located in
23 counties known as the Barnett Shale.
TLG Energy Services Team began monitoring these changes as early as 2008, and has ramped up a number of services designed to
assist our Energy Clients in all aspects of their respective operations. Some of our Energy Clients have selected TLG to assist their
dedicated internal resources who are focused on the regulatory requirements. Other Energy Clients have selected TLG to provide
complete management of the regulatory affairs related to the new requirements.
TLG Energy Services Team provides services to each Energy Client according to their needs in whatever methodology is desired.
The following is a list of only a few of the services ready for you and your organization:
