Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources: CEQA Projects

CEQA applies to certain activities directly undertaken by any public agency, which are defined by CEQA as a "project" (see PRC §21065; CEQA Guidelines §15378 ). A project refers to the whole of an action, and includes any activity that meets both of the following:

  1. Receives discretionary approval from a public agency, which requires exercise of judgement or deliberation before a decision is made (e.g., authority to approve or deny issuance of a permit); and
  2. Has the potential to cause either a direct physical change in the environment, or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment.

Every CEQA project will require some level of environmental review pursuant to CEQA, unless an exemption applies. Projects as proposed may not be approved if there are feasible alternatives or feasible mitigation measures available which would substantially lessen the significant environmental impacts of the project (see PRC §21002).

This page contains links to CEQA documents for projects undertaken by DOGGR, as listed below in chronological order.
