NAME OF APPLICANT: ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions Onshore Storage, LLC, c/o: Duplantis Design Group, 1308 Camellia Blvd., Suite 200, Lafayette, Louisiana 70508.

LOCATION OF WORK: Test Well #1 @ Lat. 29-46-57.31 N / Long. -92-14-56.39 W; Test Well #2 @ Lat. 29-47-44.82 N / Long. -92-13-37.40 W; GIWW and North Prong of Schooner Bayou; Pecan Island Area; Abbeville, Louisiana. The proposed project is located in the 08080103 Vermilion River watershed.

CHARACTER OF WORK: Proposed geological investigations via installation of 12,000 TVD ft. Class 5 stratigraphic test wells at two locations for potential storage of carbon dioxide. Test well site #1 requires excavation of an approximately 4,000'(L) x 128'(W) x 11'(D) canal and a 527'(L) x 364'(W) x 11'(D) slip. Test well site #2 requires expansion of an existing slip. Phased development is proposed such that test well #2 will be drilled first. If data obtained from test well #2 supports the need, test well #1 would then be constructed. If favorable conditions are determined at one or both wells, the existing wells will be converted to Class 6 injection wells. Approximately 283,739.6 cubic yards of native material will be excavated and used beneficially on site; approximately 45,142.4 cubic yards of native material will be excavated and placed on site to construct spoil banks and containment berms and approximately 74,190.6 cubic yards of native material will be excavated and hauled off site. Implementation of the proposed work will impact approximately 17.4 acres of marsh habitat, 28.2 acres of water bottoms, and 1.5 acres of upland habitat. Approximately 38.4 acres of water bottoms will be filled as part of the Beneficial Use Dredged Material plan to create marsh habitat. Should permit approval be considered acceptable, the applicant has proposed to mitigate any remaining unavoidable impacts through the use of a mitigation bank or banks in the project watershed, as deemed appropriate by the USACE and LDNR-OCM.
