The objectives of the proposed project is to locate untapped natural gas sources with potential for development both within and/or outside of existing natural gas fields. Foothills is requesting permits to construct a two natural gas well pads this year and drill up to five natural gas wells from each pad. The ultimate project could include a total maximum of 16 well pads. If drilling is successful at a given location, Foothills proposes to install the necessary production equipment and natural gas gathering lines in order to produce and transport the natural gas to market. Additional Coastal and Conditional Use Permits would be required for development of more than two additional well pads.
