Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the appointments today of members to the reconstructed Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. The panel is responsible for regulating the exploration, drilling and production of oil and gas resources on private, state and federal land in Idaho.

Earlier this year, the Legislature approved and the Governor signed a bill replacing the existing commissioners – the same five constitutional officers who serve on State Board of Land Commissioners – with five members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Idaho Senate. The commission members are experts in oil and gas, geology and water, as well as two landowner representatives – one who owns mineral rights and one who owns land without mineral rights.
