The Southwest Network for Zero Waste would like to extend its appreciation and gratitude to the Texas Railroad Commission, The New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, the Southwest Pollution Prevention Center and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for their excellent publications in pollution prevention/waste minimization practices in the oil and gas industry. These publications provided the core information contained in the ?oil and gas exploration and production? topic hub. The Southwest Network for Zero Waste would also like to extend its gratitude to Bart Sims, of the Texas Railroad Commission, for the invaluable data he provided to make this effort a reality.
