The operator has indicated in the ‘DRILLING WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM SECTION’ of the Form 2A; that ‘Cuttings Disposal’ will be “OFFSITE” and that the ‘Cuttings Disposal Method’ will be “Beneficial reuse”, ‘Other Disposal Description’ as “PLEASE SEE ATTACHED WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN”. Any proposed offsite disposal or beneficial reuse of cuttings to another oil and gas location shall not occur until approval of a Form 4 Sundry Notice specifying disposal or beneficial reuse location and cuttings material sampling and characterization methods. Remediated or amended cuttings shall not be made available as fill material to the general public. Any changes to drill cuttings management and disposal on this location will require submittal (via a Form 4 Sundry Notice) and approval of a Beneficial Reuse Plan detailing the changes (specifying cuttings characterization methods, cuttings management, amendment, and onsite disposal location[s]). Any of the WBM drill cuttings that will remain on the well pad location must be sampled and meet the applicable standards of Table 910-1.

Drilling/Completion Operations
An existing well on the pad logged with open-hole resistivity log with gamma-ray, from TD into the surface casing (Dixon A3, API 05-045-14884). All wells on the pad will have a cement bond log (CBL) with gamma-ray run on production casing (or on intermediate casing if production liner is run) into the surface casing. The Form 5, Completion Report, for each well on the pad will list all logs run and have those logs attached.The Form 5 for a well without open-hole logs will state “No open-hole logs were run” and will clearly identify the type of log and the well (by API#) in which open-hole logs were run.
