Document Description
This proposal entails the drilling of an exploratory petroleum oil and natural gas well on a 37,500 sf portion of a 116.93-acre parcel. If exploratory drilling is not successful, the well will be plugged and abandoned in compliance with the CA Department of Conservation, Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources regulations. If oil and/or gas is discovered, a production facility will be established on the project site, and a secondary exploratory well may be drilled on the project site utilizing directional drilling techniques. This secondary exploratory well would utilize the same production facility established for the first exploratory well.
