The update to the city’s oil and gas ordinance has been pulled from Thursday’s College Station City Council meeting agenda to allow staff more time to work with stakeholders in shaping the proposal. The council will conduct a public hearing and consider the ordinance in early 2015.
The proposed update would amend the city’s existing oil and gas ordinance to align with current best practices and existing state permitting and oversight in response to a local increase in oil and gas activity. The ordinance hasn’t been updated in more than two decades.
