IssuesUpdate: Texas Alliance of Energy Producers
'The Energy Investment Protection Act'
these bills discourage such actions by
barring state retirement funds from utilizing those institutions. Nearly 35% of
Texas state funds come from oil and gas,
so putting them into funds that fight oil
and gas is against Texas' interests. "
The Alliance also supports several
electricity reform efforts, such as HB 13
by Representative Chris Paddie, R-Marshall, HB 14 by Representative Craig
Goldman, R-Fort Worth, and SB 1749
by Senator Kelly Hancock, R-North Richland Hills.
" They identify the natural gas supply
stream as part of critical infrastructure
to make sure that during weather emergencies, gas compressors and other
equipment needed to move the product
into urban areas are not curtailed for
long periods, " Modglin details. " Those
types of facilities had their power interrupted in February, which left gas in
the field. There are some great legislative
reforms that try to protect the good
things happening in the oil and gas industry because so much of our electric

grid relies on natural gas. "
Another initiative the Alliance considers
a wise long-term play comes through HB
3096 by Representative Dustin Burrows,
R-Lubbock, and SB 601 by Senator
Charles Perry, R-San Angelo, companion
bills that would create the Texas Produced
Water Consortium.
" The Alliance is seeking solutions for
produced water beyond putting it into
disposal wells, " Modglin confirms. " We
hope Texas will be able to create a work
group at Texas Tech University that is
very similar to the one in New Mexico.
The idea is to find innovative ways to
utilize produced water for conservation
projects and other environmental benefits.
There are many beneficial and intermediary actions that do not include direct
municipal reuse, such as conservation
and watering nonfood crops. "
As for the Alliance's other priorities,
Modglin mentions keeping a wary eye
on proposals to hike fees, bonding requirements and severance taxes. The Alliance also regards with suspicion efforts
to punish flaring.

" These bills create regulatory hammers
that would slow market innovation in reducing flaring and venting, " he warns.
" We oppose those measures because they
increase the risk producers take when
they test emerging technologies and keep
the technologies that show promise from
spreading quickly.
" Under current regulations, the RRC
has shown that Texas has made substantial progress during the past two
years, with an initial ebb in flaring followed by a dramatic drop beyond any
production declines, " Modglin reports.
He attributes that progress largely to
industry efforts.
" For example, the Alliance is part of
the Texas Methane and Flaring Coalition,
which has done a lot of work during
the past year and a half to put forward
best practices, make smart recommendations to the RRC on data transparency,
and deploy newer technology to the
field. The industry is finding smarter
solutions to flaring, and we want to
stop any regulations that would disrupt
our momentum. "
