Document Description
The proposed activities are to drill 18 new wells (Bixby A 2-13 through Bixby A 2-30, PUMPKIN PATCH SITE) in the Seal Beach Oil Field to continue resource development. Work included in the proposed project consists of site construction, drilling, testing, and ancillary construction for storage and processing of product as well as connections for new production equipment to existing pipelines, as well as new pipeline connections. The proposed project is estimated to take less than 1,460 days once work begins. Site construction will include the preparation and construction of 1 well pad and 1 new group well cellar, grading of locations for pipeline racks, construction of processing equipment and tank farm locations, office and warehouse space, parking, equipment storage, and access roads. Construction and installation of tank farms and processing facilities, power generation, gas processing, pipeline racks, buildings, and well servicing assemblies will be constructed and installed. Pipelines will be above ground in containment, except, where identified in the proposed project plans, they are to go under roadways. Tank farms, loading facilities, and processing equipment will be in approved containment areas. The well cellar pads will accommodate the drill rig, staging of materials, other temporary equipment, parking, and production/drilling equipment racking. Drilling of each well is expected to take 15 days to reach target depth and install casing. If the well is determined to be viable, production will proceed. If not, it will be plugged back and abandoned. A production rig will be used to complete the well and prepare the well for production testing or set up for injection.
