The Environmental Compliance Information for Energy Extraction (ECIEE) Portal is intended to help you comply with environmental regulations that affect the exploration/development, extraction, production and processing of on-shore crude oil and natural gas. The site includes overviews of the regulations and links to more detailed information and other resources that can help this sector operate in an environmentally responsible manner.

This website was developed and is maintained by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences. Funding for this project has been provided by EPA under the National Compliance Assistance Centers program.
