Hazards & Nuisances: Operating & Abandoned Oil and Gas Wells, Tanks & Pressure LinesChapter 1
Appraisal & Property Requirements
Operating and abandoned oil and gas wells pose potential hazards to housing, including potential fire, explosion, spray and other pollution. Therefore, no dwelling may be located closer than 300 feet from an active or planned drilling site or 75 feet from an operating well; this applies to the site boundary, not to the actual well location.
