California – World Class Oil & Gas Basin
The San Joaquin Basin is being targeted due to the emergence of unconventional hydrocarbon plays in this prolific basin, plus significant conventional oil and gas reserves which continue to be discovered. In 2009, Occidental Petroleum Corporation made an estimated 150-250 mmboe discovery in the San Joaquin Basin, the largest discovery in California in 35 years1. As of end 2010, California ranked (excluding GOM offshore) #3 in the US in both oil production and also in proved oil reserves, according to the EIA. California is home to some of the nation’s largest oil fields by EUR, and 3 of the top 10.
2 Solimar is Operator of the Tejon Main Area, except for depths above 7,428 feet, wherein Lani assumes all rights and duties of Operator.
