East Cat CanyonEnergy + Jobs +Environmental Stewardship
Aera has decided to end its effort to obtain a county land-use permit for our East Cat Canyon Oilfield Redevelopment Project. This decision was made in light of the ongoing permit uncertainty with respect to oil and gas projects and accelerated due to the current global uncertainties in the oil market.
Development projects rely on permitting agencies to establish a permit process, secure a timeline for completion of that process, and for elected officials to evaluate projects objectively and in accordance with the state statutes and local ordinances set forth.
This was not an easy decision. Through the years we have been welcomed into the community with warm relations and partnerships by many people and organizations in Santa Barbara County. We appreciate all that they have done to assist us in our efforts, and we wish them continued success
