Oil and gas fields of Northern California

Description

Port I of Bulletin 181, Geologic guide to the gas and oil fields of Northern California, comprises five papers designed to give the reader some orientation with respect to petroleum and other mineral development, the geologic framework, the Late Mesozoic formations which include the oldest gas-producing horizons as well as the "basement" rocks, and the economics of development of the Sacramento Basin. Part II treats the regional geology—first surface, then the subsurface—of the Sacramento Valley, northern San Joaquin Valley, and the Santa Cruz Mountains. For each province there are papers on the general geology, followed by detail on selected gas and oil fields. Part III is the contribution of the State Division of Oil and Gas, comprising very short sketches of all gas and oil fields in northern California. Part IV consists of the field guides and road logs for five scheduled trips.
