The state intends to adopt the new execution method as prison officials are unable to acquire the necessary drugs for lethal injections - the method now employed by all American states that carry out the death penalty. "Using nitrogen will be effective, simple to administer, easy to obtain and requires no complex medical procedures".
The executions of Clayton Lockett in 2014 and Charles Warner in 2015 were considered traumatic deaths, some saying the cocktails used in the lethal injections caused, "unnecessary pain before death".
Oklahoma officials said they didn't know when executions would resume but hope to draft the new gas protocols within the next 120 days. A bungled procedure in 2014 left an inmate writhing on the gurney.

Partners Building 50 MW Solar Array In Indiana
With the inauguration of a 75 MW power plant in Mirzapur, the total capacity of solar power plants in UP has gone up to 165 MW. Mercom said the lower forecast reflected "a smaller pipeline of projects scheduled for commissioning in 2018".
The time frame for when executions will resume has not yet been fully set yet. Later that year, it was revealed that Warner's execution had been carried out using the wrong drug - potassium acetate instead of potassium chloride, for stopping the heart.
In addition to six death row inmates whose executions have been stayed, 12 death row inmates have exhausted all of their appeals and are eligible to be scheduled for executions.
"My discussions with individuals, seedy individuals who had access to drugs, even with other states with access to drugs, has proven to be for nought".
"If lethal injection is held unconstitutional, or is unavailable, an execution shall be carried out by nitrogen hypoxia", Hunter said.
"This method has never been used before and is experimental", said Dale Baich, a federal public defender and one of the attorneys representing Oklahoma death row prisoners in a federal lawsuit challenging the state's lethal injection protocol.
Hunter said the administration of the gas would probably require the use of a mask placed over the inmate's head, but he said the mechanical details still have to be worked out.
