Regulatory Compliance

Every day, the oil and gas industry faces new regulations.  Whether it involves the aptly named Texas Railroad Commission (“RRC”), the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”), FERC, or the EPA, Bibby, McWilliams & Kearney, PLLC, has the attorneys and staff with the experience to handle your regulatory compliance issues.

For our Texas clients, the RRC is king when it comes to oil and gas regulation.  Operators can go online and file permits, check local and statewide rules, and ensure they followed all the steps in the process.  Many of our oil and gas attorneys have years of experience as landmen, working closely with the Railroad Commission permitting wells, obtaining rule exceptions,  and protesting denials.  Spending time on the other side of the business has given our attorneys and BMK a unique understanding of the RRC and helps us guide our clients through any issues they may be having.

Much of the land in Western States is subject to BLM control and regulation.  Operating and working with the BLM can be a complicated process and the attorneys at BMK offer years of experience and familiarity with the BLM and can pass the value and benefit of that knowledge along to our clients.

Whether your exploration and production company needs help protesting a denied RRC or BLM permit or you need to ensure FERC compliance for your natural gas pipeline and storage facility, the attorneys at BMK are here to help.
