Underground Injection and Pollution

Elias Books regularly works with clients to obtain the necessary permits to conduct injection and disposal operations for oil and gas operations and to ensure compliance with related Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) rules and regulations.

Our attorneys also represent operators in matters involving claims of surface and subsurface pollution related to oil and gas operations. These claims often involve hearings in both district court and before the OCC. Our attorneys have experience handling both district court litigation and OCC proceedings related to claims of oilfield pollution and remediation.

Before purchasing or selling a piece of property or an interest in oil and gas production, it is prudent to research any environmental issues. Our attorneys can assist with due diligence projects and provide guidance related to possible oilfield pollution prior to closing a transaction.
