It's been ~20 months since the law passed that REQUIRES Alta Mesa to turn over Idaho production records... Now, "the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission voted 5-0 on Wednesday to authorize subpoenas for Houston-based Alta Mesa to obtain documents and witnesses to appear before the commission." 'Discrepancies' were reportedly found in an "evaluation" of AMI's gas & oil records back to 2014. "The state wants to know if Alta Mesa violated state laws involving the reporting of well production records." So do we. https://www.idahostatesman.com/news/business/article219822675.html

"The Forest Service plans to submit a rule that would make it easier to explore oil & gas drilling, as well as mineral mining, in Natl. Forests. 'The intent of these potential changes would be to decrease permitting times by removing regulatory burdens that unnecessarily encumber energy production. These potential changes would promote domestic oil & gas production by allowing industry to begin production more quickly,' the notice reads.'" http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/406349-administration-announces-plan-to-streamline-oil-and-gas-extraction?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=17795
