This 2017 update to the Renewal Plan demonstrates the progress CalGEM has made to develop an effective regulatory program over the past year, and highlights the next steps in CalGEM's ongoing commitment to reforms that will ensure environmental protection and public safety in the oil and gas fields of California.
