The Railroad Commission of Texas

The Railroad Commission of Texas (TXRRC) is the oldest regulatory agency in the state and one of the oldest in the country. Despite its name, the TXRRC no longer regulates railroads.

The TXRRC is the state agency responsible for regulating the exploration and production of oil and natural gas, surface mining, pipeline safety, gas utilities, liquefied petroleum gas (LP-gas), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) safety, and propane marketing in Texas.

Commissioners meet in an open-meeting Conference twice a month and work to ensure that Texas energy resources are produced responsibly.
