California is the nation’s sixth-largest oil producer, but because of geology and regulation it operates differently from many other energy-producing states. For example, fracking takes place in nearly two dozen states and gets a lot of attention, but the process is used on only about 1 in 5 oil wells in California. The report shows the oil and gas industry as a major employer and leading economic driver in California, responsible for 368,100 jobs in 2015, or 1.6 percent of California’s employment, with Statewide, some 90,000 oil and gas wells are actively pumping, and many of them are right where people live. Last month, Southern California Public Radio reported that DOGGR data show that in Los Angeles, approximately 90 percent of the city's oil wells are within 2,500-foot of homes, schools, parks, medical facilities and other public places. More than nine billion barrels of oil have been produced in the Los Angeles area. There are still more than 30,000 active wells pumping around 230 million barrels of oil a year, making Los Angeles County the second most productive oil county in California. Kern County is number one.
The California Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM) prioritizes protecting public health, safety, and the environment in its oversight of the oil, natural gas, and geothermal industries, while working to help California achieve its climate change and clean energy goals. Federal waters are those three nautical miles or more off California’s coast. Of the 5460 state wells, 2028 are active; 1336 are production wells, while the rest are support wells like wastewater disposal and water flood/steam flood/observation, etc, Notes: Prior to 2001, the well counts for Federal Offshore Gulf of Mexico were included in the well counts for Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas.

How Big Is California’s Oil And Gas Industry? of the oil and gas industry in California for the year 2015, as well as identifying user industries of refined products most vulnerable to cost The total potential petroleum resource in offshore central California may be 4 to 6 billion bbls oil and 5 to 7 trillion cubic feet of gas, per 1996 estimates by USGS and MMS. Most of these fields are north of Point Conception and are heavy oil. Some of these oil reserves could be produced by directional drilling from existing platforms. Political issues have prevented new development to date (2014), but these fields contain a large and significant resource for the future.
