The Railroad Commission’s Oil & Gas Regulations

The Railroad Commission is a prominent and crucial part of the oil & gas industry. Through the Oil and Gas Division, regulations for production, exploration and transportation are set concerning oil and natural gas. Greenup Industries is well-educated in these regulations and trains staff in-depth to guarantee that each on-site Greenup employee performs daily track inspections carefully with advanced equipment to prevent accidents.

Railway accidents are primarily caused by human error, which is why the Railroad Commission has been around for over 100 years and which is why the procured staff at any refinery must understand the complexities of railways and the regulations of the Railroad Commission.

Often times, because of the intricacies of oil and gas production, companies procure staff to conduct these necessary inspections. Because of this, the Railroad Commission oversees the oil and gas industry’s proceedings including activities concerning rail, pipeline, lp-gas safety, reclamation and surface mining and alternative fuels.

The Railroad Commission coordinates with companies in these areas and chooses staff for each tasks based on compliance with the regulations set out to protect against error.

In the Gulf South, where the oil and gas industry primarily lives, the Railroad Commission’s regulations are an especially prominent part of training staff to conduct successful track inspections.

Our staff working at refineries in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are extremely well-prepared to perform daily track inspections to ensure safety for on-site staff and to protect the environment and surroundings from any catastrophic occurrences.

Here are some facts about the largest shale in the United States:

The Eagle Ford shale spans across Texas from the US-Mexico border through East Texas. Its brittle rock makes it a favorable focus for oil and gas fracking. According to a study conducted by the University of Texas San Antonio, by the year 2020, there could be an additional 68,000 full time jobs in the field in the state of Texas earning $21.5 billion.

The Eagle Ford shale produces both wet and dry gas. In just three months beginning in January 2014, 804,299 barrels of oil and an impressive 3,596 cubic feet of natural gas were produced daily. These numbers continue to grow as does the need for staff.

U.S. companies and many foreign are increasing business in Texas, because of the shale’s high production. It is essential to staff any refinery with staff well-trained in safety regulations.
