The chair of the Railroad Commission of Texas has directed commission staff to look into its existing rules on water recycling in the oil and gas patch. "If we need to streamline our old rules and make amendments where necessary to encourage companies to expand their recycling activities, then that is what we will do," said Chair Elizabeth Ames Jones. "...[W]e must maintain that hydraulic fracturing can continue to benefit Texas by allowing companies to manage water use and conserve when possible as it relates to this process of energy production."
