Southern California Gas Company La Goleta Storage Field Enhancement Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
PLU: UT (Utility) Zoning: PU (Public Utility)
Document Description
The project involves drilling four new wells (two development/exploratory wells identified as Todd 1 and 2 and two exploratory wells identified as Chase and Bryce 3, and More 6), installation of approximately 2,800 linear feet of six-inch diameter underground piping, and construction of an additional gas dehydration unit and other appurtenant facilities at the La Goleta Storage Field. The two exploratory wells would be converted into development wells if native gas production is determined feasible. Native gas from the development/exploratory wells would be routed through the new underground pipeline to the new dehydration unit prior to connecting to existing gas transmission and distribution pipelines for local distribution. SoCal Gas estimates that there are three to five billion cubic feet of recoverable gas reserves in the target reseroir, and production of these reserves would take approximately three to five years. The proposed new faciltiies would be converted to storage uses after sufficient depletion of the native gas reserves has been achieved.
