Oil and Gas Conservation Commission
The West Virginia Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (OGCC) regulates the drilling of deep wells in the state. The OGCC reviews deep well applications and grants deep well approval when requirements are met; the OGCC conducts hearings on matters relating to the exploration for or production of oil and gas from deep wells. Hearings are held to determine the spacing of wells and to pool the interests of royalty owners and operators of a drilling unit. Visit for more information.
