On March 3rd, Governor Matt Mead signed into law a bill which says that natural flare gas that is used to treat produced water is exempt from taxation. The Alliance commends the men and women who worked hard to make this happen.
This good first step is one of many that we will take together to change our minds about produced water and how we can make it beneficial use.
