Oil and Gas: Rulemaking for IDAPA 20.07.01
Rules of Practice and Procedure Before the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission


The Idaho Administrative Procedures Act was passed after 1992, and this year’s Senate Bill 1339 contained several changes to administrative proceedings for the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. As a result, 20.07.01 no longer governs actions by the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. IDL may bring forward a new set of rules in the future that would govern proceedings before the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

Repeal of these rules will reduce confusion regarding administrative and hearing processes. Negotiated rulemaking was not conducted because the rule is being proposed for repeal and it no longer has any authority.

Status of Rulemaking

The rules were adopted by the Idaho Legislature during the 2017 legislative session.
