Aera’s operations are centered in California’s San Joaquin Valley

Aera operations are centered in California’s San Joaquin Valley, where much of the company’s heavy oil production comes from the oil fields of Kern County—the largest oil producing county in the nation. We also produce light oil from the area’s complex diatomite formation.

Thanks to a combination of engineering, lean processes, data quality and innovation, we are able to boost the output of mature fields, making Aera a leader in heavy and light oil reservoirs.
