The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) will host a free webinar titled Statewide 32 Exception Application Online System to inform and train oil and gas operators about their responsibilities when obtaining an exception to Statewide Rule (SWR) 32 and how to file the new Form R-32, Application for Exception to Statewide Rule 32, online using the RRC Online System.
To obtain an exception to SWR 32, the Form R-32 must be filed with the RRC by the end of the next full business day following the first 24 hours of the release of gas unless the deadline is extended by the RRC or the RRC's delegate. The application can be filed online using the RRC Online System at https://webapps.rrc.texas.gov/security/login.do.
The webinar will cover a variety of topics, including:
• an overview of the structure and essential elements of the new Form R-32;
• an introduction to the online system — how to access the system and file an application;
• a demonstration of the online system; and
• an overview of additional phases to the online system currently in development.
