BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Industrial Commission is holding a hearing on its new natural gas flaring policy.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1eHYihb ) that the meeting is slated for Tuesday in Bismarck.

Testimony will be taken on the potential impacts of changes made to the department’s rules on restricting production to curb natural gas flaring.

New rules were approved by the Industrial Commission earlier this year as the result of the work of a natural gas flaring task force.

A number of task force recommendations are intended to be implemented by June 1 and are expected to reduce flaring to 15 percent within two years and 10 percent within six.

The percentage of gas being flared in the state is pegged at a record 36 percent.
