Poso Creek Phase III Underground Injection Control Project 566-09-021
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Document Description
E&B Natural Resources Management Corporation (E&B) applied to the Department of Conservation, Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM) to amend an existing Class II Underground Injection Control (UIC) Project Approval Letter (PAL) to merge their steam flood production (UIC Project No. 566-09-021) and cyclic steam production (UIC Project 566-09-040) (Project) activities at the Poso Creek Oil Field. The proposed project consists of 62 new wells, as part of the third phase of expansion of existing operations in the Poso Creek Oil Field (Phase III). The proposed project area under Phase III would be geographically contiguous to previously approved project areas (Phase I approved in 2013 and Phase II approved in 2018). If approved, CalGEM will amend the PAL for UIC project 566-09-021, and render the PAL for UIC Project 566-09-040 obsolete. All previously approved injection activity under Phase I and Phase II expansion will be covered by this amended PAL. The impacts of this project area are addressed in this Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND).
