New Well Site
Occidental has notified the Town of Erie that they will begin developing five new oil and gas natural wells this month. The well installation operation will be the 'Cleland 11-15HZ' well site (north of Erie Parkway and east of WCR7).
This operation begins with onsite preparation of the location for horizontal drilling. Next, a drilling rig will begin the underground well construction process by installing steel pipe and cement to protect groundwater. Phase 3, horizontal drilling, is expected to begin in mid-November and is likely to extend through the end of January 2020. The dates are approximate and may be subject to change. Occidental will send additional information as plans to conduct hydraulic fracturing, facility construction and reclamation progress.
