Document Description
The project proposes to amend Title 18 of the Long Beach Municipal Code (LBMC) by adding Chapter 18.78, Construction in the Vicinity of Oil Wells, and Chapter 18.79, Methane Gas Mitigation. Chapter 18.78 requires the permittee of construction activities in the vicinity of oil/gas wells to submit documents with details on proposed well abandonment, future accessibility, above-well mitigation, and long-term safety evaluation to the California Geologic Energy Management Division and the City. Chapter 18.79 details the applicability of methane mitigation requirements, definitions, methane soil gas investigation, exemptions, site design levels, methane mitigation components, operations and maintenance, plan review and inspections, and post construction protocols, among others. Adopting Chapters 18.78 and 18.79 into LBMC Title 18, Long Beach Building Standards Code, would provide clarity and procedures for future development in the vicinity of oil/gas wells in Long Beach.
