The Aliso Canyon field is located in the eastern part of the Santa Susana Mountains, approximately 30 miles northwest from the center of Los Angeles, California. The productive beds are in the block beneath the folded Santa Susana thrust fault.

The complicated set of structural and stratigraphic conditions pertinent to the accumulation of oil is discussed. The Pliocene, Miocene, and Eocene series each contains a productive zone. Each series is separated from the other by an erosional unconformity with the result that the structure and productive limits of each oil zone are different.
