NAME OF APPLICANT:  HILCORP ENERGY COMPANY, c/o Enercon Services, Inc., Attn: Ms. Jennifer Pluhar, 5850 San Felipe Street, Suite 400, Houston, Texas 77057.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Located in Sections 29, 32, & 48, Township 6S, Range 3E, near Denham Springs, Louisiana, in LIVINGSTON PARISH, 30.49164 N and -90.92872 W, as shown on the enclosed drawings.  This project is located in USGS Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 08070202-Amite River.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit to install and maintain an approximate 1,452-linear foot board road, to clear, excavate, place and maintain fill material for the construction of a ring levee for a drill site to drill the Slider Wells No. 1 and No. 2, and install and maintain via horizontal directional drilling methodology two (2) approximate 5,700-linear foot flowlines to produce the two wells.  Approximately 401 cubic yards of native material (373 cubic yards for the ring levee and 28 cubic yards for the proposed culverts) would be placed in jurisdictional areas and approximately 3,928 cubic yards of limestone material would be hauled onsite and placed as fill material, should the well be successful.  Approximately 5.51 total acres of jurisdictional bottomland hardwood forested wetlands would be cleared and converted to herbaceous wetlands; of which approximately 2.402 acres of jurisdictional bottomland hardwood forested wetlands would be permanently impacted via fill placement with hauled in limestone if the wells are successful.  Project implementation proposes the clearing of a 10-foot wide by 915-foot long flowline right-of-way to be cleared and maintained as an herbaceous wetland.  All access roads and the 400-foot x 420-foot well pad would use 2 layers of 6-inch wooden mat material as temporary fill except in the areas proposed to be filled with limestone if the wells are successful.  The applicant is proposing to install        18-inch culverts at a minimum of every 250 feet along the proposed access road to maintain hydrology of the avoided adjacent wetland areas.  The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant is proposing to purchase appropriate credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank.
