A History of California Oil Production,
the DOGGR and the Conservation Committee

Jerry Anderson , CCCOGP


In 1929 the state production had increased to 801,000 B/D from 277,000 B/D when the decade began.  An additional 200,000 B/D was shut in and 800 million cubic feet of gas was vented daily. Jerry will provide a historic perspective of California’s oil and gas industry, the events which occurred requiring the formation of the DOGGR and CCCOGP, and their partnership in establishing conservation practices for California.


Mr. Anderson is currently Executive Director of the Conservation Committee of California Oil and Gas Producers, which works directly with the California DOGGR in making recommendation of Maximum Efficient Rates of oil and gas production to the State Oil and Gas Supervisor. Prior to this he worked for Texaco as an Operating Unit Manager.  He also has industry work experience as a Facility Engineer, Production Engineer, Reservoir Engineer, and Engineering Supervisor. Jerry holds a M. S. in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State Univ and a M.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from the Univ of Southern California. He is the West Coast Director for the Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) and is a member of SPE.
