In 1935, the Interstate Oil Compact was executed in Dallas, Texas. Maryland ratified the Compact in 1959 (Chapter 390, Acts of 1959). The Compact established the Interstate Oil Compact Commission. From its inception, the Commission has been equally concerned with the conservation of oil and gas and, in 1991, adopted its present name.

Through the Commission, thirty member states and seven associate states work to conserve oil and gas resources by maximizing their production while minimizing waste. The Commission promotes environmental protection in energy-producing states and is a forum for state regulators seeking to standardize laws, rules, and regulations in these states.

Members of the Commission include the governor of each signatory state and an assistant representative who may act in the governor's stead (Code Natural Resources Article, secs. 6-401 through 6-404).
