Hearings

The Hearing Process

Two hearings are conducted by a Division examiner each month (OCD Hearings), and one hearing is held each month by the Oil Conservation Commission (OCC Hearings).  Examiner hearings consist of applications for exceptions to the Division's rules that cannot be approved administratively.  The Commission hears cases on appeals from the examiners' decisions, rulemaking, and precedent-setting cases.  Both types of hearings begin with an application to bring the matter to hearing.  The application is set to a specific hearing date, and a docket of the cases scheduled for the hearing is prepared.  Each case is resolved by the issuance of an order which may be viewed in the OCD Online Imaging System. The public may attend these hearings.

Please email correspondence pertaining to Division cases to: OCD.Hearings@state.nm.us and Commission cases to: OCC.Hearings@state.nm.us.

Notice:

Continuances of cases set for hearing before the OCD

To manage the growing caseload with the limited resources available to OCD, the OCD will set future dockets as follows:

The FIRST DOCKET of each month will be reserved for NEW CASES filed 30 days before the hearing dates.

The SECOND DOCKET of each month will be reserved for CONTINUED CASES from prior dockets and any other cases determined by the OCD.

NOTICE: The January 23, 2020, docket is full. All continuances will be scheduled for the next available docket.
