STRONGER was formed in 1999 to administer the state review process begun cooperatively in 1988 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC). To date, 22 state programs accounting for 94% of domestic, onshore oil & gas production have participated in a review.
In August 2014 STRONGER completed a comprehensive history and report on the state review process. The report was updated in January 2016. For more information about STRONGER, the state review program, and participating states, please read the report.
