(b) No point in the redrilled hole shall be closer than 50 feet to the blanked off portion of any well not under the control of the drilling operator, other than the well to be redrilled;
(c) All redrilling within an oil zone shall be done with any standard circulating medium as used in good engineering practice and as approved specifically by the Division of State Lands.
(d) In case any point in the redrilled hole may come within 200 feet of the portion open to production of any well, other than the well to be redrilled, the applicant shall file with the Division of State Lands:
(1) Written consent from the operator of each well within said 200 feet, waiving any objection to the proposed redrilling operations;
(2) For each well, within said 200 feet, a surety bond, in an amount and for a period to be fixed by the commission, indemnifying the State against any loss, damage, claim, demand or action caused by or connected with the redrilling operations.
