Oil Field Surface Expressions

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Under strengthened regulations effective ‪April 1, 2019, surface expressions violate state regulations enforced by the Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR). A surface expression can occur when steam injected under pressure to produce oil breaks through natural geologic barriers and comes to the surface. DOGGR is partnering with independent experts from the Lawrence Livermore and Sandia National Laboratories to address surface expressions in the Cymric oil field in Kern County.
