The Santa Clara oil field is located on Federal Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) lands in the Santa Barbara Channel, offshore southern California (Figure 1). The field lies in the submerged western portion of the Santa Barbara - Ventura basin on a prominent midbasin structural feature known as the Montalvo anticlinorium. Fields within this basin produce oil and gas primarily from a thick Cenozoic sequence, particularly from reservoirs in Oligocene, Miocene, and Pliocene formations. At the Santa Clara field, production has been established in the Pliocene Pico and "Repetto" Formations1, and the Miocene Monterey Formation.
