State Sen Wendy Davis has filed her third Barnett Shale bill.
The latest would require operators to use "green completions" to reduce the amount of air pollution -- mostly methane -- that is released before wells are hooked up to a pipeline. http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs/81R/billtext/html/SB00902I.htm
Davis has also filed SB 752, which requires injection well operators who dispose of oil and gas waste to use deep formations. SB 752 - Bill Text
And SB 686, which requires the Texas Department to allow gas gathering lines in state highway rights-of-way. SB 686 - Bill Text
