Operators Liable For Oil And Gas Operation
Current law requires that the owner of surface property rights demonstrate that an oil and gas operator’s use of the surface land in mineral development “materially interfered” with the surface owner’s use of the land. This bill amends this standard to allow the owner of surface rights to demonstrate that the operator’s oil and gas operations harmed the surface owner’s use of the land, caused bodily injury to the surface owner or any person residing on the property, or damaged the surface property. The bill also holds oil and gas operators strictly liable for their conduct if oil and gas operations, including hydraulic fracturing, cause an earthquake that damages surface property or injures an individual.
