Public raises oil/gas well expansion issue

July 24, 2017

Members of the public argued pro and con over Renaissance Petroleum’s 2014 application to Ventura County (which has jurisdiction) to expand its oil operations on unincorporated land within sight of Oxnard. Renaissance says that they informed the city of this three times since 2014.

Some residents and pressure groups have concerns about potential environmental hazards and have attempted to block the application or at least demand a more stringent environmental review. They claimed air pollution, disease, environmental and racial justice, the cumulative effect of multiple polluting industries and toxic waste sites in the area. At a minimum, some wanted more stringent environmental impact review.
