The Sacramento Basin oil and gas province (heavy red line) covers an area of nearly 12,000 square miles and forms the northern part of California’s Central Valley. The province is bordered on the west by the Coast Ranges, on the north by the Klamath Mountains, on the east by the Sierra Nevada, and arbitrarily on the south by the Stanislaus-San Joaquin County line (thin red lines show county boundaries).

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently completed a new assessment of undiscovered natural gas resources of the Sacramento Basin Province of California. Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the USGS mean estimates of undiscovered, technically recoverable resources are 534 billion cubic feet of natural gas and 323 thousand barrels of natural gas liquids in the Sacramento Basin Province. Additional undiscovered oil accumulations larger than 0.5 million barrels are considered unlikely.
