E.I. Each lease shall be provided with sufficient tankage or meters to permit proper gauging of the oil produced. The tanks or meters must be identified by a sign showing the ownership of the tanks or meters and the name of the lease from which the oil is being produced. In no case shall meters be the sole means of measuring oil runs from any field. There must be used at least one gauge tank to check the reading of meters. Applications for the use of oil meters in lieu of gauge tanks shall be the subject of open hearings until rules are formulated.

D. No well shall commence drilling below the surface casing until a sign has been posted on the derrick, and subsequently on the well if it is a producer, showing the ownership and designation on the well, name of lease, section, township, range and serial number under which the permit was issued. The obligation to maintain a legible sign remains until abandonment.
