Document Description
The originally approved project consists of an amendment to Title 19 Kern County Zoning Ordinance (July 2012), with focus on Ch. 19.98 (Oil and Gas Production), to include new site development standards for all oil and gas exploration, extraction, operations, and production activities in unincorporated Kern County. The DOGGR, as the CEQA responsible agency, will be issuing a permit for the proposed project activity, which consists of the following: Aera Energy LLC (Aera) proposes to hydraulically fracture API# 03062700 (well 942E-33) which is expected to take 3 days or less, including placement of portable tanks and all ancillary equipment to support the closed loop system ,as well as the well stimulation treatments (WST). The well is in a densely developed oilfield (South Belridge). Any ground disturbance, or expansion of facilities, associated with this project has been mitigated through the Kern County Oil and Gas Ordinance. Fluids from the WST will be collected in a closed system and will not be discharged onto the ground or into sumps, Flow-back fluids from the wells immediately after WST operations will be collected in the closed system at the well site. The collected fluid will be transported from the well sites for treatment in Aera's water treatment facility, Water Plant 20 located in the South Belridge Field, and transported via pipeline to Aera's permitted Class II disposal wells.
