Aera and its predecessor companies have been producing heavy crude oil in Coalinga since 1913
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 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. Aera was an inaugural sponsor of the community’s National Night Out in 2017 and has long supported career programs at Coalinga High School.
Additionally in 2017, our Coalinga operation donated the equivalent of more than 20,000 pounds of food through employee and company contributions to the Community Food Bank in Fresno County. Team Aera volunteers helped the food bank at local food distribution sites in Coalinga. Coalinga employees also sponsor “Santa for Seniors,” a holiday program which supports the activities of residents at two local senior care facilities.
