Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources

​The Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) prioritizes protecting the public and the environment in its oversight of the oil, natural gas, and geothermal industries in California. To do that, DOGGR uses science and sound engineering practices to regulate the drilling, operation, and permanent closure of energy resource wells. DOGGR also regulates certain pipelines and facilities associated with production and injection. The Renewal Plan guides DOGGR's work.
