OS-6825 Authorization to Construct an access road and a Surface Lease Extension and Operate a Multi-well oil pad

A surface lease consisting of a 155.7 m long access road and 2.36 ha area extension for drilling and operating a multi-well oil pad will be constructed and maintained for the operating life of the wells, then decommissioned and reclaimed before the lease agreement is surrendered.

The proposed wellsite extension has been located along the south boundary of the existing 16D-14-56-3W4M padsite, which had been constructed but not drilled at the time of the field assessment and application. The extension is situated adjacent an existing pipeline right-of-way to reduce fragmentation in the general project area. 

The proposed wellsite extension has been located so as to avoid most of the small wetlands areas in the immediate project area; due to the many small scattered wetlands, impact to on shrubby swamp wetland (class II temporary wetland) will occur as a result of extension construction. No fish bearing waterbodies will be impacted or are within 100m of the wellsite extension.
