MiSTAR - Class II Injection Reporting and Production Reporting

Electronic filing of Class II well injection data, documents, and reporting and oil and gas production reporting is accomplished using the Michigan’s State Tracking and Reporting (MiSTAR) systems. There are two separate versions of MiSTAR, one for the injection reporting and notifications (MiSTAR Injection) and another for production reporting (MiSTAR Production). These MiSTAR systems replace paper submittals and the Oil and Gas Production E-file reporting system utilized by both the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) and the Oil, Gas, and Minerals Division (OGMD). All owners and operators of Class II wells and those submitting oil and gas production data are required to use the MiSTAR systems to fulfill the regulatory requirements.

 The MiSTAR systems allow for data submittals via an Electronic Data Deliverable (EDD) template within the system. The EDD is a Comma Separated Value (CSV) or Excel (.xlsx) file wherein the data is captured according to the proper operator and production category. This EDD is then submitted and approved by the agency within the MiSTAR system.

To receive access to MiSTAR, operators must complete and submit (according to instructions) the following:

The information above will be used to create usernames and passwords which will be provided via email to the designated individuals indicated on the Well Permittee Organizational Report. If designated individuals are to be added or removed from the reporting responsibilities, a revised Well Permittee Organizational Report must be submitted to reflect the changes. Should the individual signing the Certification below no longer have authority over the submission of reports, a new signed Certification is required to be submitted. It is the responsibility of the operator to assure that the MiSTAR login credentials are held confidential and only used by those individuals authorized to submit the electronic filings on behalf of the organization they represent. After the required documentation is received and processed, a username and password will be created and provided to the appropriate staff indicated by the operator to access the MiSTAR system.

 MiSTAR Injection

Beginning in September 2022, all Class II well injection well reporting, and documentation will be done though the MiSTAR Injection web application. This includes the Monthly/Annual injection Well Operating Report (formerly form EQP 7609), Standard Annular Pressure Test (formerly form EQP 7606), Notification of Loss Mechanical Integrity, Notification of Scheduling MIT, and Quarterly Annulus Fill Reports. Documents such as Chemical Analysis of Injectate, Pressure Gauge Calibration Data, MIT Charts, and other documents can be submitted in a PDF format. In addition, operators may interactively receive correspondence from the Oil, Gas, and Minerals Division pertaining to their operations on a real time basis.

MiSTAR Production

Beginning in early 2023, all Oil and Gas monthly and annual production data reporting will be done through the MiSTAR Production web application. This system replaces the MPSC'S Oil and Gas Production E-file reporting system and OGMD's Monthly/Annual Production Reports (Formerly forms EQP 7101/7101A) and Monthly Production Report (Trenton Black River) (Formerly form EQP 7105). MiSTAR Production allows operators to electronically submit data to fulfill regulatory requirements.

Please note that at this time, the MiSTAR production system does not replace the following reporting:

  • Central Production Facilities Reporting (EQP 7126A/7126B)
  • Oil Gathers Monthly Report (EQP 7102 or approved equivalent)
  • Gas Gathers Monthly Report (EQP 7129)
  • Annual Domestic Well Status Report (EQP 7101-D)

For these records and reporting users should follow the guidance for submittal as detailed on the individual form(s).
