Title
Venoco, Exploratory Oil Wells Monterey County Files PLN090118, PLN090119, PLN090120
Description
NOTES: 2nd Circulation/Extended Review The project proposed by Venoco Corporation is to drill up to nine (9) total exploratory oil and natural gas wells. There are three proposed sites (1b, 7a, 34b) each site will contain up to three (3) exploratory oil and gas wells on a single pad. The drilling of the second and then the third exploratory wells on each pad is dependent upon the results of the testing for the first well. The project will be completed in two phases: 1) a site preparation phase, road grading for the purpose of access to each of the proposed sites; and development of pads to locate a stable drilling platform for the exploratory drilling equipment and the construction of ancillary non-permanent structures; and 2) the drilling and testing phase. The project will require Use Permits for each parcel as required under the zoning code because the wells are located on separate parcels. Well site #7a, is located in Section 7, (Township 24 South, Range 11 East). The site is approximately 0.60 miles south west of Highway 101 and approximately 0.90 miles south east of Jolon Road, (Assessor's Parcel Number 424-101-023-000), and well site #34b is located in Township 23 South, Range 10 East Section 34. The site is approximately 2.2 miles west of state Highway 101 and approximately 0.90 miles north of Jolon Road (Assessor's Parcel Number 423-091-040-000). The three project sites are located along the west side of Highway 101 within the South County Area Plan. The project will require a total of 30,010 cubic yards of grading. The soil will be redistributed on each site to create a pad for each of the three drilling platforms. Project site 7a will require 2,770 cubic yards of cut and 2,560 cubic yards of fill. Project site 1b will require 8,970 cubic yards of cut and 8,240 cubic yards of fill, site 34b will require 18,270 cubic yards of cut and 16,320 cubic yards of fill. The remainder 2,890 cubic yards of spoils will remain on each respective site.
