...R. K. Cross ABSTRACT Cuyama, California’s newest oil province, discovered January 1, 1948, has produced to June 1, 1958, 156,949,760 barrels of premium-grade crude oil valued at $471,000,000. Current production is about 42,000 barrels per day under controlled withdrawal. Accumulations discovered so...

The Cuyama Valley, which was barely mentioned as a possible future oil province in the symposium of 1941, has now developed into a major oil-producing province. Subsequent to the first commercial oil strike in January, 1948, in a Norris Oil Company well producing 150...

A large proportion of the oil generated probably either has remained in source position, has been dissipated to overlying seas during primary compaction, or , has been lost because of exposure due to later tectonic episodes.

...Mason L. Hill; Stanley A. Carlson; Thomas W. Dibblee, Jr. ABSTRACT The 1948 discovery of oil in Cuyama Valley has focused attention on the geology of this region. The development of stratigraphic data has necessitated the use of a number of new and redefined rock-stratigraphic terms. Therefore...
