We've worked with a number of county and municipal governments in a variety of states to enact or improve their oil and gas regulations.

While local governments are sometimes limited in what aspects of oil and gas development they can regulate, local regulations can significantly mitigate property, nuisance, public health and environmental impacts.

To provide guidance on what counties can and cannot regulate in Montana, we have prepared a model for county regulations in the state.

Please contact us with questions, ideas or consultation regarding local regulations in your areas.
