Signal Hill Petroleum Long Term Extension of Conditional Use Permit 97-03 Project


SHP is requesting a permit extension of 20 years for Conditional Use Permit 97-03 to continue their existing oil and gas production, storage, processing, and shipping of materials at seven existing drill sites located throughout the City of Signal Hill. The Signal Hill Petroleum Conditional Use Permit 97-03 Extension Project (Project) would not alter the scope of SHP’s existing operations. No physical expansion of existing facilities is proposed and all operations (existing and proposed) would continue to occur within the existing permitted CUP site footprints.

SHP proposes to install new equipment within the existing natural gas processing facility at CUP Site #2 and drill up to 46 new wells within the seven drill sites over the 20-year period of the CUP. All other operational activity, such as site maintenance, inspections, redrilling and well operation, and fluid processing would remain the same. SHP would continue to operate the CUP facilities (drill sites and central processing facilities) in accordance with the existing City Municipal Oil and Gas Code, CUP conditions of approval, and mitigation measures, and in continued compliance with existing county, state, and federal requirements, including those published by CalGEM.  

SHP is seeking to modify CUP 97-03 with the following objectives:

  1. Extend the life of the CUP by an additional 20-year term, to expire in 2042.
  2. Continue existing consolidated drill site operations, including drilling new wells within the existing CUP footprint on an as needed basis, to continue providing a local source of high-quality oil, natural gas, and electricity, and install upgrades to a natural gas processing system.  

The City of Signal Hill is preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to assess the potential environmental impacts of implementing the Project. We are soliciting input from members of the public, organizations, and government agencies on the scope and content of the information to be included and analyzed in the EIR. Please review the Notice of Preparation for the EIR at:
