Project Plans

The applicant requests permission to temporarily fill 3.51 acres of wetlands to construct an oil and gas exploration pad and temporary access road. If the well is successful, the applicant requests permission to permanently fill 4.98 acres of wetlands to construct a production pad and roadway.

Proposed activities include installation, operation and maintenance structures and equipment necessary for oil and gas drilling, production and transportation activities. These activities include installation of a 2.23-acre temporary drilling pad with a 0.45 acre ring levee and 0.44-acre borrow ditch, a 0.16-acre temporary access road, a 0.23-acre temporary turn around area, and a pipeline constructed in uplands, and placed in the temporarily disturbed wetlands. The temporary pad and road will be constructed from board matting. If the well is productive, a 4.19-acre permanent production pad will be constructed, along with a 0.55-acre permanent road and a 0.24-acre permanent truck turn around area. The purpose of the larger production pad is to facilitate drilling of additional wells from the site.

The proposed project will temporarily impact 3.51 acres of wetlands, which would be restored within 180 days of placement into wetlands, if the well is unsuccessful. The proposed project will permanently impact 4.98 acres of wetlands, if the well is successful.
