Seneca 2 Abandonments
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project consists of abandoning two oil and gas wells. The proposed project is in an area with surface and mineral rights owned by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. DOGGR has issued permits for the abandonment and notified BLM of the permits.
Class 1 - existing facilities: The proposed project involves abandoning two wells 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.
