Incentive/Summary Kentucky Administrative Regulation title 8 …
Kentucky Administrative Regulation title 805 promulgates the rules and regulations pertaining to natural gas production in Kentucky. In addition to KAR title 405, chapter 30, which pertains to any oil shale operation, these regulations govern natural gas operations throughout the state. The following information is found in KAR title 404 chapter 30: Oil shale operations or related activity require a valid permit covering from the Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet for the area of land to be affected. Activities that throw, pile, dump any overburden, stones, rocks, shale, earth, soil, dirt, debris, trees, wood, logs, or any other materials outside of the area of land that is under permit. Oil shale operations must not engage in activities that result in an imminent danger to the health or safety of the public or cause significant, imminent environmental harm to land, air, or water resources. Any conditions that threaten the public must be met with reasonable actions to mitigate the threat, and notify the Cabinet, law enforcement, and other applicable jurisdictions. A design engineer must determine the structure hazard classification according to the regulations of all sedimentation structures whether new or proposed reconstructed structures. For structures classified (B) - moderate hazard or (C) - high hazard, the a permit is required from the from the cabinet and the Kentucky Division of Water prior to construction. Data, reports, documentation, certifications, or other information may also be required by the Cabinet. The Cabinet may impose any monitoring or data collection requirements upon the permittee as are deemed necessary to adequately assess the possible adverse environmental impacts of such activities. Oil shale operations must demonstrate to the Cabinet the impacts their operation will have on the environment, utilizing necessary technical, scientific, and engineering data. If the applicant cannot demonstrate to the Cabinet's satisfaction the extent and magnitude of possible adverse environmental impacts of the facility and reasonable control of these impacts, its size will be limited to a total surface disturbance of 100 acres per year. Each permit will be issued for a fixed term not to exceed five years. A longer fixed permit term may be granted at the discretion of the Cabinet only if:(a) The application is full and complete for the specified longer term; and(b) The applicant shows that a specified longer term is reasonably needed to allow the applicant to obtain necessary financing of the operation, and this need is confirmed, in writing, by the applicant's proposed source for the financing. A permit will terminate if the permittee has not begun the oil shale operation covered by the permit within three years of the issuance of the permit. Preliminary Requirements Preliminary applications are required by the Cabinet before application for a permit, which must include a U.S. geological survey seven and one-half minute topographic map and a 1:6000 map marked to show the boundaries of the area of land to be affected, and the location of the oil shale deposits to be mined, access roads, haul roads, spoil disposal areas, and sedimentation ponds. Personnel of the cabinet will conduct, within thirty (30) days after filing, an on-site examination of the area with the person or his representatives after which the person may submit a permit application. Publication of Notice of Intention to Mine An applicant for a permit must place an advertisement in the newspaper of largest bona fide circulation in the county or counties where the proposed oil shale operation is to be located. Title 805 chapter 1 outlines the Kentucky Division of Oil and Gas regulations. Chapter 2 covers diesel equipment standards. Chapter 3 covers mining safety standards. Chapter 4 covers the Kentucky Division of Explosive and Blasting regulations. Chapter 5 covers the Division of Mining. Chapter 7 covers Miner Training Education and Certification. Chapter 8 covers Sanctions and Penalties. Chapter 9 covers Coal Bed Methane. Kentucky Class II Underground Injection Control (UIC) programs are administered by the U.S.S EPA Region 4. Kentucky has no statutes, regulations, or policies that specifically address slurry injection, subfracture injection, and annular injection of drill cuttings and drilling muds. Historically, EPA Region 4 has allowed at least one operator to dispose of drilling waste down the annulus of a producing well on a one-time basis. The EPA conditioned the approval on a verification that the injection pressure did not exceed the pressure naturally furnished by the hydrostatic head. (The state does not issue duplicate UIC permits.)
