Aera East Cat Canyon Redevelopment Plan Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR

Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead Aera proposes to re-establish oil production at a forecasted level of up to 10,000 barrels of oil per day by implementing a thermal enhanced oil recovery process within the Brooks sand (reservoir) underlying the eastern area of the existing Cat Canyon Oil Field. To do so, the Project wells, roads, utility and transportation infrastructure would be built out in two phases, Phase I and Phase II. The operational results and monitoring data collected from Phase I would help to confirm the Project's reservoir models and production forecasts, prior to additional investment and construction. Production from the Project is expected to continue for more than 30 years after initial production unless or until it is deemed uneconomic or undesirable to continue operation. Note: See project for full description
