NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project consists of reworking an existing well (API 0403002697, Permit 7001131)). The proposed project is in an area designated as "critical" within the densely-developed Kern River oilfield. The city of Bakersfield has issued a class 3 permit for the well.
The proposed project involves reworking 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. The division has determined that the project is categorically exempt from CEQA under the class 1.
