Repetto Formation, Los Angeles Basin

Comments on Geologic Parameters

9 Hydrocarbon Production:

There are approximately 20 oil fields in the Los Angeles Basin that produce out of the Repetto Formation (Redin, 1991; Wright, 1991). Many of these fields are structurally controlled. For example, Inglewood, Potrero, Rosecrans, Dominguez, Long Beach, Seal Beach, and Huntington Beach fields occur along the Inglewood Fault. Other fields, including Whittier and Brea fields, are associated with the Whittier Fault. Production data, including data of basic reservoir parameters, are listed in detail by the California Department of Conservation (1991).
