2012 Marginal Well Report
For nearly 80 years, the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) has championed the preservation of this country’s low-volume, marginal wells and documented their production. The IOGCC recognizes that it goes to the heart of conservation values to do all that is possible to productively recover the scarce oil and natural gas resources marginal wells produce.
In addition to supplying much-needed energy, marginal wells are important to communities across the country, providing jobs and driving economic activity. Today, as the nation ponders the solution to its energy challenges, the commission continues to tell the story of how tiny producing wells can collectively contribute to a sound energy and economic future.
