Seneca Resources’ West Division was established in 1987 as a result of the acquisition of several properties from Argo Petroleum in Ventura County, Calif.
In 1998, Seneca Resources expanded into Kern County, Calif., by acquiring the HarCor, Whittier and Bakersfield Energy companies. More recently we acquired Ivanhoe Energy USA in 2009. In 2012, a portion of the Coalinga oil field, located in Fresno County, Calif., was acquired from Chevron U.S.A. Inc., a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation. That same year, Seneca Resources was named Operator of the Year by California’s Bureau of Land Management.
