30 CFR § 75.1700
Oil and gas wells.
Each operator of a coal mine shall take reasonable measures to locate oil and
gas wells penetrating coalbeds or any underground area of a coal mine. When
located, such operator shall establish and maintain barriers around such oil
and gas wells in accordance with State laws and regulations, except that such
barriers shall not be less than 300 feet in diameter, unless the Secretary or
his authorized representative permits a lesser barrier consistent with the
applicable State laws and regulations where such lesser barrier will be
adequate to protect against hazards from such wells to the miners in such
mine, or unless the Secretary or his authorized representative requires a
greater barrier where the depth of the mine, other geologic conditions, or
other factors warrant such a greater barrier.
