Lower California is an unknown and untested oil province; no deep wells have been drilled in search of oil and the oil potentiality is not predictable from available information.

Despite limited quantitative information, the geological evidence is definitely favorable in three distinctive areas: (1) the Sebastian Vizcaíno embayment, (2) the Eugenia Abreojos Province, and (3) the Iray Purísima region.

No oil seepages have been found in the area that extends southward from 28° to 24° North Latitude. However, the thickness and type of sediments encountered and the structure are attractive for oil possibilities.
