Belridge Operation Highlights

NAME Award winner

In 2002, the Belridge Producing Complex won the prestigious North American Maintenance Excellence (NAME) Award for its maintenance and reliability program and results. Aera is the first exploration and production company to win the award previously given only to manufacturing organizations. In the manufacturing industry, the NAME Award has been compared to the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

Many employees assigned to Belridge live in the greater Bakersfield area and are active in the community as individuals or through the company’s Team Aera and Partnership A.E.R.A. programs. In addition, every year during the November and December holidays Belridge employees coordinate an annual “adopt a family” outreach which serves nearly 400 needy individuals.
