An allowable transfer will not be authorized for a well converted from oil production to saltwater disposal; however, an operator may make application to use the well for dual-purpose waterflood and saltwater disposal if injection is into an oil productive zone, and it is shown that the water injection will not injure the reservoir but will probably be of benefit to the reservoir as a secondary recovery program even though the beneficial effect of the water injection cannot be readily determined.
