To help operators obtain bonds as required by Division 3 of the California Public Resources Code (PRC), the Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (Division) has prepared two resources for operators to use.
1. Bond Information (PDF, 38 KB): contains a description of bonds including when they are required, how much they are, and when they are released.
2. Bond Log (PDF, 14 KB): lists recent bonds that have been submitted to the Division, including the surety company name, bond type, and bond amount. This is a good source for determining which surety companies are currently writing oilfield bonds.
Specific bond questions may be directed to the appropriate Division district office or the headquarters office in Sacramento. (Please see the Division Contacts list on our main web page.)
