Welcome to

Arizona Oil and Gas Conservation Commission

The oil, gas, and geothermal resources rules explain the basic requirements for drilling, completing, and producing oil and gas wells. They are part of the Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.) in Title 12 (Natural Resources), Chapter 7 (Oil and Gas Conservation Commission). Paper copies may be purchased from the Secretary of State. The Arizona Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (AZOGCC) has the authority to approve requests for variance or exception to many of the general statewide rules after notice and hearing.
