What do rail roads have to do with this industry?

The Rail Road Commission of Texas is the regulatory agency that controls all of the oil and gas drilling and production in Texas. A permit must be filed with the RRC in order to obtain a permit to establish a disposal well. The permit process takes about 90 days to complete. The prospective injection zone must be approved by the RRC and there is a limit to the amount of water per day that may be injected into the zone. There is also an injection pressure limit.
