Oklahoma regulators add electronic filing for injection well operations

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission plans to move to an updated electronic form reporting for some of the state’s non-commercial disposal and injection wells.

The Commission announced the electronic Form 1012 for annual volume reporting on all non-commercial disposal/injection wells will go into effect on Jan. 2, 2020.

“This is part of an ongoing effort by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission’s Oil and Gas Conservation Division to move toward a new online electronic form (eForm) system,” stated the announcement.

The Commisson’s 1012C reporting will remain on the existing EWFiler system and operators will still be required to send in a hard copy of the 1012C.

First-time users to the new Oklahoma eForm system will need a new login name and password. The system will not accept 1012 entries until Jan. 2, 2020. But new users can register now prior to the 1012 eForm release. 

The Commission recognizes that there might be some “kinks” in the new system and users should be aware.

As with any release of a new electronic product, unforeseen technical issues in the system may arise. We appreciate your patience as our staff, the state’s IT agency and our contractor work through any potential issues or possible delays,”” stated the Commission announcement.

The regulators indicated they welcome any comments on difficulties companies might experience.

This feedback is important as we develop additional eForms. We will keep you informed as we navigate these changes of any updates that could affect your company and injection well reporting.”
