2. Notice was published in the Anchorage Daily News on August 28, 1996 pursuant to 20 AAC 25.540.

3. Neither a protest nor a request for a public hearing was timely filed. Accordingly, the Commission will, in its discretion, issue an order with out a public hearing.

FINDINGS:

1. Conservation Order No. 207, dated January 10, 1985, amended the boundary for the Lisburne Oil Pool Rules without including Section 29, T12N, R14E, Umiat Meridian.

2. A major fault called the Prudhoe Bay Fault controls the northern limits of the Lisburne Oil Pool.

3. Recently revealed geologic data and interpretations indicate that the Prudhoe Bay Fault may cut across the southeast corner of section 29 within the Lisburne Oil Pool.

CONCLUSIONS:

1. The LIsburne Oil Pool may extend beneath a portion of Section 29, T12N, R14E, Umiat Meridian.

2. The boundary for the LIsburne Oil Pool Rules should be expanded to include Section 29, T12N, R14E, Umiat Meridian.

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED THAT the following described area be included within the boundary for the Lisburne Pool RUles and made a part of the "affected area" established by Conservation Order No. 207.
