The State Lands Commission (SLC) "owns" all improperly abandoned oil wells in California, so when HTO heard there was a SLC Hearing scheduled in August 2015, we showed up to offer help. We hired Dudek Environmental Engineering to apply for Proposition 1 funding to cap the Becker Onshore Well. We did not get the grant, but it started our collaboration with SLC for cleaning up the Summerland mess.
