NAME OF APPLICANT:  PETROLEX OPERATING VENTURES, LLC, c/o Tim Morton & Associates, Inc., 500 S. Morgan Avenue, Broussard, Louisiana 70518. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  In Green Lake Oil and Gas Field, Latitude 30.420621, Longitude -91.363977, approximately 4.3 miles northwesterly from Grosse Tete, Louisiana, in West Baton Rouge Parish, within the Terrebonne Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070300), as shown on the attached drawings.      

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a ring levee system with appurtenances to drill the A. Wilbert Sons, LLC Well No. 1.  Approximately 8,900 cubic yards of fill material would be hauled in and deposited to level the drill site area. The proposed project drill site area consists entirely of forested wetlands.  Additionally, the applicant has proposed to extend two metal culverts and place 90 cubic yards of fill material to these two areas. The culverts are to be extended to widen the turns of the existing road for access to 18-wheelers.   

A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact 3.68 acres of mostly forested wetlands.

The applicant states that the proposed drill site was located adjacent to an existing road to avoid impacts which would have occurred with the construction of a new access road.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impacts.
