Stoel Rives LLP

Yesterday, July 1, 2015, pursuant to Senate Bill 4 (“SB 4”) the State Oil & Gas Supervisor Steven Bohlen, head of the Department of Conservation’s Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (“DOGGR”), certified a Final Environmental Impact Report (“Final EIR”) for oil and gas well stimulation treatments.

As presented in the Final EIR, for the purposes of CEQA, the “project” involves hydraulic fracturing, acid fracturing, or acid matrix stimulation of an oil and gas well, where the well either (1) existed prior to January 1, 2014, or (2) could be drilled after January 1, 2014, specifically for the purpose of a well stimulation treatment.

Further analysis of the Final EIR will follow on this blog in the coming days and weeks.
