Basic requirements for drilling, completing, and producing oil and gas wells are explained in the oil, gas, and geothermal resources rules, which 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 (AOGCC) has authority to approve requests for variance or exception to many of the general statewide rules after notice and hearing.
