Hydraulic Fracturing (Hydrofracking): New Mexico

A legal resource guide for information relating to hydrofracking including primary and secondary source materials, quick links, and database resources.

New Mexico

Fracking in New Mexico takes place in the San Juan Basin in the northwest of the state as well as the Permian basin in the southeast. New Mexico is similar to other states in that it now requires the disclosure of the chemicals used in fracking fluids, although there is a trade secret exemption that companies can ask for. 

The OIl Conservation Division of New Mexico is responsible for overseeing fracking in the state.
