IPAA, RegScan launch Pennsylvania regulatory compliance system

The Independent Petroleum Association of America and RegScan Inc., a Williamsport, Pa.-based regulatory compliance service company, have launched a compliance system to help producers meet regulatory requirements in Pennsylvania. The IPAA Environmental Compliance System-PA is a timeline-driven system using RegScan’s Socrates program to outline regulatory requirements throughout a well’s life cycle, IPAA and RegScan said.

“Energy regulations grow more complex every single day, and IPAA has an obligation to help its members meet their compliance needs,” IPAA Pres. Barry Russell said. “With expert tools like the IPAA Environmental Compliance System-PA, we can assist them with that daunting task.”

The system covers four compliance periods: predrilling, drilling and completion, well production and operation, and plugging and abandonment, IPAA and RegScan said in their Oct. 5 joint announcement. They said it contains all the state’s regulatory requirements, fully integrated with fillable forms, encrypted document storage, permit applications, guidance documents, and audit checklists. Managers can assign and monitor tasks from their desktops with the system’s Socrates project management platform, they indicated.

IPAA and RegScan said they worked with two consulting engineers, Jim Collins and Jim Erb, to develop the new system. More information is available online.
