Dutch Slough Gas Field Contra, Costa County, California

R. D. Reedy


Dutch Slough Gas Field, discovered in October 1963, by Signal Oil and Gas Company, is conveniently located 40 miles east of San Francisco and adjacent to one of the leading energy markets in the State of California.

A reserve of approximately 300 billion cubic feet of natural gas has been established in former “dry hole” country. A full spectrum of anomalous structural and stratigraphic occurrences has provided for an accumulation of quality natural gas and condensate. Present production is obtained from Eocene (Meganos) and Paleocene (Martinez) formations, but deeper Cretaceous objectives offer considerable future potential.
