NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project consists of abandoning one oil and gas well (API. 0402921920, Permit 7001115). The well is part of Underground Injection Control Project No. 46400049 in the Midway-Sunset field. The proposed project is in an area with surface and mineral rights owned by the US BLM. The BLM has issued a Sundry Notice for the well abandonment.
The division, has determined that the proposed project is exempt from further environmental review requirements of the CEQA, pursuant to the specified exemptions marked in the section below. The division further finds that the proposed project would not result in a significant adverse impact to the environment, or that any of the exceptions to the exemptions apply.
The proposed project involves abandoning an existing well in a highly-developed existing oil field. The drilling operations will result in only minor alterations to an already densely-developed oil field with negligible impacts to the existing condition of the land.
