The proposed Project consists of an extension of the existing Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources Designated South Belridge Oil Field which would include the development of 67 wells (43 oil producers and 24 stream injectors) which are considered shallow in nature. The wells, associated access roads, pipeways, and associated supporting infrastructure will result in approximately 32 acres of disturbance on privately owned surface and privately owned mineral land. The Project would result in the take of species listed by the State as threatened or endangered, pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 2081 and as such CDFW is a responsible agency under CEQA with respect to the Project.
The Project will result in permanent and temporary impacts to 32 acres of giant kangaroo rat (Dipodomys ingens), San Joaquin antelope squirrel (Ammospermophilu nelsoni), and San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica). The Project is expected to result in incidental take of giant kangaroo rat, San Joaquin antelope squirrel, and San Joaquin kit fox, which are designated as threatened and endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act. 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.
