Following its initial exploration by William Wallace Stabler, the southern edge of the San Joaquin Basin was drilled by two generations of the Nahabedian family. Recently, Citadel Exploration, in conjunction with Sojitz Energy Ventures, has begun working in the region on an operation that has come to be called the Rancho Grande Project. As of now, Citadel and its partners have selected 23 zones with the combined potential of producing 200 million barrels of oil. This high output, along with the project’s proximity to Los Angeles, proffers an outstanding level of success for the operation.
