E&B Natural Resources Management Corporation (E&B), is proposing an oil and gas facility to develop a portion of the Torrance Oil Field. The proposed project (project) is a 1.3-acre site located at 555 6th Street in the City of Hermosa Beach (Hermosa Beach), consisting of 34 directionally drilled wells (30 oil producing wells and 4 water injection wells), a laydown site for heavy equipment and supply staging/storage, and a parking lot. Additionally, underground oil and gas pipelines will be constructed on and off site for the transportation of processed crude to refineries and purchasers. These pipelines will extend from the project site, and cross the Cities of Redondo Beach and Torrance. The project is predicted to produce 8,000 barrels of oil per day, and 2.5 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day.
