Oil and gas production in Kings
County currently sustains nearly 500 local jobs.
With additional properly regulated and permitted production, our community could realize even more good-paying local jobs and tax revenues for public services we need.
California has abundant natural resources, yet we currently import 70% of the oil and 90% of the natural gas we need. Developing the resources right beneath us will provide home-grown job opportunities for working families in the Central Valley.
The oil and gas industry contributes nearly $58 million dollars annually to Kings County through property, sales and other taxes. These revenues support our local schools, roads and public safety services.
