What is the Rincon Phase 2 Feasibility Study?
The Rincon facilities are in Ventura County. They include Rincon Island, the connecting causeway, an 11-acre onshore facility, and offsite pipelines. The State Lands Commission is responsible for decommissioning the facilities. Phase 1 was to plug and abandon all the state oil and gas wells and perform related site clearance work to prepare the sites for caretaker status. Phase 2 is to develop a decommissioning plan for the disposition of Rincon Island, the onshore facility, and the causeway. This includes a feasibility study and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) documentation. Phase 2 work began in March 2021and is expected to take about six months to complete. The feasibility study assesses the practicality of various decommissioning alternatives for the Rincon sites, including reuse, full removal and partial removal.
