Document Description
Project includes activities to redevelop two oil well development blocks with the construction, operations and maintenance and eventual plugging/abandonment of a total of 34 new wells including 28 oil production, 6 steam injection wells, and associated infrastructure within the development envelope over 30 years. Project will result in permanent impacts to 20.51 acres and temporary impacts to 5.47 acres of San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) and San Joaquin antelope squirrel (Ammospermophilus nelsoni). The Project is expected to result in incidental take of San Joaquin kit fox and San Joaquin antelope squirrel, which are designated as a threatened species under the CA Endangered Species Act (CESA). The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation. The Amendment increases the original development envelope from 50 acres to 123 acres to allow final placement of well pads and infrastructure to be determined prior to construction based on preconstruction survey results from Covered Species, but will not increase the permanent or temporary impacts listed above.
