Summary

Oil and gas wells; bonding requirements; application notice. Authorizes a person who applies for a hearing in front of the Virginia Gas and Oil Board to provide required notice of such application to certain gas or oil owners, coal owners, mineral owners, or gas storage field operators by commercial delivery service. Current law provides for delivery only by certified mail. The bill changes the blanket bond amounts that the Director of the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy may require for an application for permits for gas or oil operations and authorizes additional bonds for any well proposed to be drilled in the Tidewater region.
