Texas Oil and Gas Operations Blanket Bond

How much does an oil and gas operations blanket bond cost in Texas?

The Railroad Commission of Texas requires individuals who operate oil and gas wells to post surety bonds in varying amounts prior to conducting business. The required bond amount is determined by the number of wells you operate within the state. If you operate less than 10 wells, the required bond amount is $25,000. If you operate 10 to 100 wells, the required bond amount is $50,000. If you operate more than 100 wells, the required bond amount is $250,000.

Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Texas oil and gas operations blanket bond, principals (oil well operators) pledge to carry out all operations in compliance with all state laws and commission rules. Specifically, the principal agrees to plug and abandon all wells and control, abate and clean up pollution associated with its oil and gas operations and activities according to all laws and permit rules and regulations.

If the principal fails to adhere to these laws and the terms of the surety bond contract, the bond protects the state from financial loss up to the full bond amount.

What’s the fine print?

Texas oil and gas blanket bonds become effective 150 days after the principal’s P-5 effective date. These bonds expire 150 days after one of the annual P-5 expiration dates, but can be renewed if the surety sends a written renewal to the commission.

How to legally operate an oil or gas well in Texas

Prior to operating an oil or gas well, you must first acquire a permit. To obtain a permit, applications must be sent to the Oil and Gas Division Railroad Commission. Each application must be accompanied by a $200 application fee and a surety bond in the proper amount.
