What would be the impact of new oil wells in Inglewood Oil Fields on Culver City townhomes ?

Asked by P G, Sun Apr 7, 2013

I read that several new oil wells are being dug up in Inglewood oil fields right next to Raintree, etc townhome complexes and which are likely to have fracking as well. Any ideas on potential health hazards from there and consequent property values ? Moreover, would this also affect Playa Pacific townhomes as well ?

Dear Puneet,
As you might be aware, the City of Culver City is right on top of this issue inviting the public to take part in their discussion draft for regulations. Some of their recommendations are
New applications for oil and gas drilling must reduce,noise,odor,safety health and environmental impacts,to homeowners etc.
You can take a look at what they are drafting at http://www.culvercity.org.

Thanks but we decided that it was too much of a risk, given that even nationwide risks of fracking are unclear. We have decided to not look within 0.5 mile radius of the inglewood oil field which unfortunately for us rules out most of the Culver City townhomes.

Great question a few months age I learn that there have been fracking approvals in Baldwin Hills, Culver City and Inglewood. I hear about it on the Bill Maher Show. I was shocked. Obvious, oil exploration alternatives are not considered. My understanding is that Halliburton will have a major interest in the fracking projects. Homeowners should question impact of fracking on neighborhood values, humans and the environment. Attached are articles about fracking. Do your own thorough research and draw own conclusions on pros and cons of fracking.
