Our Products

Crude Oil

California Resources Corporation's (CRC) oil production is connected to California markets via our oil gathering pipelines which are used almost entirely for our production. We generally do not transport, refine or process the oil we produce and we sell almost all of our oil into the California refining markets. We believe these markets are among the most favorable in the U.S. because California imports a significant percentage of its oil requirements from outside the state, mostly from foreign locations.

Natural Gas Liquids

CRC’s production from oil and gas reservoirs typically includes oil, produced water, natural gas (methane), and natural gas liquids (NGLs) that include ethane, propane, butane and natural gasoline. CRC processes NGLs through our processing plants, which facilitate access to third-party delivery points near the Elk Hills Field.

Natural Gas

CRC is the largest natural gas producer in California, which imports approximately 90 percent of the natural gas consumed in the state. We sell our natural gas production in the state and use intrastate transportation contracts to facilitate delivery of our natural gas to customers.


Elk Hills Power, LLC, a joint venture of CRC and a portfolio company of Ares Management, L.P., generates electricity from natural gas in the Elk Hills Field. With a capacity of 550 megawatts (MW), the plant’s electricity powers the Elk Hills Field and supplies excess power to a local utility and California’s electrical grid sufficient to supply more than 300,000 homes. CRC operates a 45 MW cogeneration facility that provides steam and electricity as needed to the Elk Hills Field, and THUMS Long Beach Company operates a 45 MW power generating facility that provides electricity to the Wilmington Field in Long Beach.
