History of Inglewood Oil Field

The Inglewood Oil Field has played a major role in the history of Los Angeles. Since the discovery of oil and natural gas resources here in 1924, the field has helped fuel our lifestyle and strengthened our local economy. Over the field’s history 1,600 wells have been drilled within the historical boundaries of the field. Today, the oil field’s boundary covers approximately 1,000 acres making it one of the largest contiguous urban oil fields in the United States.

The field was first commercially produced by Standard Oil Company of California Los Angeles back in the days when Baldwin Hills was considered “out in the country” and the lands were primarily farmed and grazed.

Future of Inglewood Oil Field

Over the past century, more than 400 million barrels of oil have been produced from the Inglewood Oil Field. Today, the Inglewood Oil Field continues to be a steady source of domestic oil and natural gas and is one of the most productive oil fields in the entire L.A. Basin. Production at the field has averaged between 2.5 – 3.1 million barrels a year for the past ten years. With technological advancements in the oil and gas industry, engineers estimate that as much as 50% of the field’s oil resources remain in place in producing zones and can be readily accessed through drilling and production activities. These resources will continue to ensure that the Inglewood Oil Field supplies Southern California’s refineries with oil for decades to come, offsetting their need to import supplies from South America and the Middle East.
