Annual Fracing Trailer Permits

fracing-trailerTxDMV issues an annual permit for the movement of a vehicle combination consisting of a truck-tractor and semitrailer specifically designed with a tank and pump unit for transporting liquid fracing products, liquid oil well waste products and unrefined liquid petroleum products to or from oil wells not connected to pipeline. The semitrailer must fall within Texas legal size and weight limits. This permit is an annual permit that expires one year from the "movement to begin" date.

This permit allows movement when the vehicle or semitrailer:

  • Carries liquid oil well waste products or unrefined petroleum products from wells not connected to a pipeline and return empty; or
  • hauls liquid products related to oil well production to an oil well and return empty; or
  • hauls liquid products related to oil well production to an oil well and return with liquid waste products or unrefined liquid petroleum products from an oil well not connected to a pipeline.
