Ventura Oil Field to Celebrate Centennial Anniversary With Educational Event

How oil is made and used in everyday life as well as how people and the environment are protected during the process will be the focus of the Ventura Oil Field’s 100th anniversary celebration Saturday, April 9, 2016. 

The public is invited to the event, which will be held from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., with a special program starting at 10:30 a.m. The event will be held at the Shell Club House, which is located at 600 Shell Road just north of the Ventura city limits.

No RSVP is required for this free event.

Attendees will learn about Ventura’s rich oil history and current operations as well as Aera’s community contributions and the company’s successful efforts to protect people and environment.

Exhibits will showcase tools of the trade, oil extraction processes and the many products used in everyday life that get their start from petroleum. Attendees will also learn about the geology of the Ventura field and have a chance to view core samples that reflect what is deep underground.  

Aera Energy LLC is one of California’s largest oil and gas producers. Company headquarters are in Bakersfield and most of its production is centered in the San Joaquin Valley.

Aera also has oil field operations in Ventura and Monterey counties.

Fiona Lytle is a public affairs specialist at Aera Energy LLC.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
