Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commisssion - Area Injection Order 011.001

October 28, 1986


Re: Amend Rule 6 of Area Injection Order (AIO) No. 11

Mr. Gerry Graham
District Operations Manager

Anchorage, AK 99519-02479

Dear Mr. Graham:

The Commission has determined that Rule 6 of AIO No. 11 as set forth is unclear as to the Connnission's intent. Therefore, Rule 6 is amended to read:

Rule 6 Well Integrity Failure

Whenever operating pressure observations or pressure tests indicate pressure communication or leakage of any casing, tubing or packer, the operator must [IMMEDIATELY CEASE INJECTION,] notify the Commission on the first working day following the observation, [AND] obtain Commission approval [FOR CORRECTIVE ACTION] of a plan for corrective action, and when an USDW is not endangered, obtain Commission approval to continue injection.
