Anterra violates Ventura County permit routinely: State

According to public records available at the agency known as DOGGR (Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources) the injection wells at Anterra in unincorporated land have routinely violated the amount of oil field fluids they are allowed in put into the Oxnard Plain by the county. 

The conditional use permit allows fluids from 24 tanker trucks a day, which comes to approximately 60,000 barrels a month. This graph from one of the two injection wells (#5) on the site shows that Anterra has paid little or no attention to the permit. 


That's according to the state of California.

Here's what Brian Baca, of the county's Planning Division, wrote about that in his notice of violation to the company dated June 25, 2014. 

Anterra Energy has violated the truck delivery limits established in CUP 531-1 for every month from November 2013 through March of 2014. This includes the three days in February 2014 that Anterra reported accepting between 33 and 63 trucks at the Anterra facility.

The CUP limit is 24 trucks a day.
