Effective January 31, 2023, the Railroad Commission of Texas (TRRC) will launch updates to the online system used to file the Form CI-D, Acknowledgement of Critical Customer/Critical Gas Supplier Designation, and Form CI-X, Critical Designation Exception Application.
The updates to the online filing system provide a more efficient process when submitting the required forms.
- Users are no longer required to enter data on a workbook spreadsheet and upload as a .CSV file to the TRRC Online System.
- There are two new left-hand menu options “File CID” and “File CIX.” When selecting either of these options, the TRRC Online System will display three tabs – “Acknowledge,” “Select,” and “Submit.” These tabs allow users to enter information and complete online filing of either form.
- The organization’s facilities now auto -populate on the “Select” tab with the option to select which facilities when filing either form. Upload of a .CSV file is no longer required, but the online system still allows users to attach supporting documentation.
Reminder: oil and gas operators and pipeline operators must file the Form CI-D or Form CI-D online by March 1, 2023, using the TRRC Online System. Hard copy forms or email form submissions are not accepted. To view the full notice, visit the TRRC website.
