NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project consists of abandoning one oil and gas well in the Midway-Sunset oil field in Kern County. 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 abandonments and notified BLM of the permits. API #: 0403040759. Well Name: 59-47.
The proposed project involves reworking one 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" (14 CCR 15301).
