Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 4-S: 15304
Reasons for Exemption
15261(b) - Ongoing Project: The Division has determined that the project is statutorily exempt under the Ongoing Project (14 CCR 15261(b)) exemption per the CEQA guidelines because the Division identified the Midway-Sunset Oil Field and issued permits in this oil field pre-CEQA (prior to April 5, 1973). Additional permits issued in the developed areas of the Midway-Sunset Oil Field are considered part of an ongoing project and exempt from further CEQA reviews. Class 4- Minor Alterations to Land: The Division has determined that the project is categorically exempt from CEQA under the "Class 4" (14 CCR 15304) exemption per CEQA guidelines and per DOGGR regulations (14 CCR 1684.2) because the proposed project is located on previously graded or otherwise recently disturbed land within a densely developed oil field.
