Name of Applicant:   Alta Mesa Services, LP, c/o C.H. Fenstermaker & Associates, Inc., 135 Regency Square, Lafayette, Louisiana 70508

Location of Work:  Adjacent to Marsh Bayou, Lat 30.39833°, Lon -93.17222°, Section 3, T08S-R08W, HUC 08080203-Upper Calcasieu, approximately 2.5 miles northeasterly from Gillis, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, as shown on the attached drawings.

Character of WorkConstruct and install an approximately 3,313-feet long board road to access and drill the Quatre Mineral No. 1 Well for the exploration and production of oil and gas resources. Project implementation would result in the clearing of approximately 0.46 acres of forested wetlands for the proposed board road right-of-way. Approximately 380 cubic yards of 3-ply wood mats would be temporarily placed as fill within jurisdictional wetlands to construct the board road, affecting approximately 0.47 acres of herbaceous and cleared forested wetlands. Should the well be successful, approximately 310 cubic yards of hauled-in limestone material would be placed as fill to create a permanent access road, impacting approximately 0.38 acres of herbaceous and cleared forested wetlands. The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize adverse impacts to the aquatic ecosystem to the maximum extent practicable. As compensation for any unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to purchase mitigation credits from a Corps-approved mitigation bank.
