PetroRock, LLC is proposing the UCCB Production Plan project to reactivate oil production in the north central portion of the State designated Cat Canyon Oil Field through a thermally enhanced oil recovery process built out in two phases. In total, 231 new oil, injection, and water wells located on 29 well pads, a centralized tank battery, pipelines and ancillary equipment are proposed. It is expected that the project could produce up to 4,000 barrels of native oil per day at peak production. The entirety of the project is located on existing drill pads or currently disturbed ground, and would use existing public or private roads for operation and transportation. The project land encompass approx. 710 gross acres, of which the project development footprint would be limited to approx. 28 acres (4.0% of gross area). Current uses on the property include existing oil pads, cattle grazing, and vineyard operations.
