Oil & Gas
Well Site Locations
In an emergency, you need emergency personnel to respond to the correct address as quickly as possible. 9-1-1 addresses have been established to handle this situation. All drilling sites within Caddo Parish are required to obtain a 9-1-1 address prior to construction.
In order to obtain a 9-1-1 address, you must provide a site plan or map showing the location to be addressed as well as any other required information (see below).
To obtain a 9-1-1 address for oil & gas site locations, applicants must submit the following items:
- Floodplain Development Permit - Regulations to protect the health and safety of citizens and reduce the risk of property damage in flood-prone areas.
- High Traffic Volume (HTV) Notification - Required to access a Caddo Parish roadway.
Sites within the Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) are required to submit a Sound Study. Although it is not required for sites outside the MPC (five miles beyond Shreveport City limits) it is recommended that a dust mitigation plan and noise study be submitted. If no sound study is provided, the Parish will utilize Parish Code for Maximum permissible sound levels.
