The Oklahoma Corporation Commission was asked to call a rulemaking hearing Friday by Barney Welch, president of Merchants Deliver Service Inc., to clarify several of its rules governing hauling of oilfield fluids - specifically saltwater.

Welch, during a hearing on charges his company undercut tariff rates and kept inaccurate records, asked the commision to:

Define a terminal as to whether it is a permanent yard or wherever a truck is parked.

Merchants hires owner-operators to haul its transports and charges rates from where the truck is parked at night, usually the closest point to a well and a public disposal.

Complete an investigation of rate violations within 90 days.

Welch says the investigation of his company continued for 10 months.

Welch also called for uniform billing of hauling on point to point basis instead of hourly charges.
