Who we are:
The Commission is an independent, quasi-judicial agency of the State of Alaska. It is established under the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Act (AS 31). Its regulatory authority is outlined in Title 20, Chapter 25 of the Administrative Code.

If you wish to contact the Commission directly please email the Special Assistant to the Commission.

The Commission oversees oil and gas drilling, development and production, reservoir depletion and metering operations on all lands subject to the state's police powers.

The Commission acts to prevent waste, protect correlative rights, improve ultimate recovery and protect underground freshwater. It administers the Underground Injection Control (UIC) program for enhanced oil recovery and underground disposal of oil field waste in Alaska. It serves as an adjudicatory forum for resolving certain oil and gas disputes between owners, including the state. The Commission carries forth statutory mandates consistent with the protection of health, safety and the environment. It strives for cooperation with industry, while maintaining well-defined and essential regulatory requirements.
