Our Coalinga operations cover approximately 15 square miles in Fresno County about nine miles northwest of the City of Coalinga, just west of Interstate 5. Approximately 7,000 barrels of heavy crude oil per day are produced by the Coalinga unit each day. Crude oil is sold on the premises and is transported to refineries in California for processing into gasoline and other fuels.
In the community, Aera is a longtime member of the Coalinga Chamber of Commerce and serves as a sponsor of the annual Horned Toad Derby celebration. In addition, Aera is the principal sponsor of the Coalinga-Huron Library District's Summer Reading Program. Annually Aera offers two college scholarships to graduating Coalinga High School seniors and participates in the annual West Hills College Foundation benefit golf tournament. Coalinga employees also sponsor "Santa for Seniors."
Aera and its predecessor companies have been producing heavy crude oil in Coalinga since 1913.
