PCEC is planning to double its cyclic steam injection operations on Orcutt Hill, increasing from 96 oil wells to 192. The project is still in the planning stages and a draft environmental impact report on the plan is currently out for public review. The Sun toured the operation on March 9 and looked at historical sites, such as the schoolhouse built in 1908; current operations, including infrastructure for both steam injection and conventional wells; and the empty space where future wells are slated to be drilled.
