Fast Facts

  • A “brine well” is a solution mining operation to remove salt.
  • The solution mining of the salt results in an underground cavern. The stability of these caverns is dependent upon their depth, their width, and the strength of the materials above the void.
  • Oversight of brine wells by the Oil Conservation Division is accomplished under provisions of the federal Underground Injection Control program and the New Mexico Water Quality Control Commission regulations.
