Thus far, we have worked with Donnie Willis in Planning and Development to fulfill the procedures required by the City of College Station. I have also been in discussions with Mr. Ofczarzak (Oakwood Custom Homes Group, Ltd.) , the landowner of the drill site, who has requested the pad, gravel, and fencing around the perimeter of the pad to be left intact for his future planned use. Please review his request along with a Brazos County description of the subject property. If there is any other material or information I can provide you with, please don't hesitate to contact me. Mr. Gibbs, on behalf of Enervest, my thanks for your time and effort. file://C:\Documents and Settings\jprochazka\Local Settings\Temp\XPgipwise\4D5BD152... 2/16/2011 Page 2 of 2 Robert Sgovio, Landman Spindler Land & Minerals (979) 224-8004 mobile (979) 968-9644 office somaflow@cvctx.com file://C:\Documents and Settings\jprochazka\Local Settings\Temp\XPgtpwise\4D5BD152... 2/16/2011 Page 1 of 2 7ennifer Prochazka - Re: Fwd: Boriskie-Diversified #1 Pad From: Alan Gibbs To: Norton, Josh; Prochazka, Jennifer Date: 2/16/2011 1:24 PM Subject: Re: Fwd: Boriskie-Diversified #1 Pad 4pm PAC >>> Jason Schubert1/21/2011 11:29 AM >>> Alan, From my reading of the ordinance, it appears that when an oil well is abandoned the property is required to be restored to the same surface conditions as existed before the operations commenced. I think it is fair to assume the fence and pad did not exist prior to the operations but were installed as part of the well site. As for planning's input outside of this, the site is zoned R-1 Single -Family Residential and is not currently platted. For the property to be utilized for any other use, it will need to be platted first. Also, I do not believe the current improvements comply with R-1 zoning and therefore should be removed with the abandonment of the well. Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a happy birthday!

Donnie can get you Oil and Gas chapter and verse, but the regs indicate the pad should be removed as part of the "abandonment" requirements.

There is a meeting scheduled to discuss this at 4pm on Feb 16th here at city hall. Though I can't speak to Railroad Commission compliance and timing in plugging/closing the well, the city will certainly await this meeting before requiring the conditions of the well abandonment be fulfilled - as I had indicated to Alton as well. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks. Alan Gibbs, P.E., CFM City Engineer Planning and Development Services City of College Station P.O.

My understanding is that there is a city meeting February 16th, during which Alton will propose a zoning change. It is also my understanding that if a zoning change is approved, it will take app. 45 days and such change would allow Enervest to convey the pad to Mr. Ofczarzak as is. Can you please confirm that Enervest will be in compliance (subject to its normal course of plugging and abandonment procedures) and not susceptible to any fines during this interim period, as we hold off on restoring the location awaiting the zoning decision.
