Texas A&M Law Review


This year's Survey on Oil & Gas includes summaries from thirty-five states. These summaries paint a picture of the various oil and gas activities across the many states. As with the last several years, hydraulic fracturing (or "fracking") remains in the spotlight, with two prominent issues coming to the forefront. The first issue is the continuing tug-of-war between state oil and gas acts and local and city ordinances attempting to regulate fracking activities. The second issue many states are wrestling with is the management of fracking wastewater.
