Sentinel Peak Resources California LLC (SPR) proposes to drill 3 new oil wells. The proposed project would occur on previously disturbed well pads that require minor grading to level the location. Project implementation would include the grading of existing well pads, installation of associated pipelines, one power pole, one new electrical line, and drilling of three new wells. The project would occur on public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a maximum possible soil disturbance of 0.11 acres.
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (PRC §21000, et seq.) and the CEQA Guidelines (14 CCR 15000, et seq.), and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the California Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (Division) is the CEQA lead agency for the proposed project, while the BLM is the NEPA lead agency. The Division has reviewed BLM’s approved FONSI (DOI-BLM-CA-CO60-2020-0085-EA) and finds that it meets the requirements of CEQA. BLM found that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment; therefore, the Division intends to use the FONSI rather than preparing a Negative Declaration for this project.
CalGEM has approved to issue new drill permits to SPR for the following wells:
