The Geological Division's Orders Management Section is responsible for the review of oil and gas Orders prior to the Commissioner's signature. The section tracks the orders to insure that they are issued in a timely manner with respect to the overall hearing docket evaluation process. They also insure that the orders are compliant with the Office of Conservation's current policies. The Orders Management Section provides guidance relating to order format and content.
Proposed forms of Order for normal hearings and critical date hearings can be sent via email to the Orders Management Section. Requests for critical date hearings must be accompanied by the Estimated Economic Impact Statement. Questions and requests can be directed to contact information provided on this page.
All Conservation Orders are now available on the Internet for download via the Document Access component DNR's Strategic Online Natural Resources Information System (SONRIS). Certified copies of Office of Conservation Orders are issued by the section upon request.
