Summary

The policy of the state of Texas is to encourage the rapid and orderly development of geothermal energy and associated resources. The primary consideration of the development process is to provide a dependable supply of energy in an efficient manner that avoids waste of the energy resources. Secondary considerations will be afforded to the protection of the environment, the protection of correlative rights, and the conservation of natural resources. The Railroad Commission is responsible for regulating the exploration, development, and production of geothermal energy and associated resources on public and private land.
