NOE - Notice of Exemption
The permitted project consists of reworking an existing well to convert a producing well to a steam flood well (API 0402960363, permit 7001532). The rework is part of Underground Injection Control Project No. 34000013. The permitted project is in an area designated as "critical" within the densely-developed Kern River oilfield.
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.
