Venoco’s primary operational focus continues to be on California, the state where our success began. We maintain a very strong asset base ranging from oil fields in offshore California and in Federal waters to onshore oil fields throughout the southern portion of the state. Our core Southern California assets consist of three offshore platforms and one onshore field that we own and operate, and non-operated interests in three additional platforms in the Santa Barbara Channel. We continue to maintain a presence in the emerging onshore Monterey Shale in the central part of the state.
In the past, we had operations in various parts of north and east Texas. Today, Venoco retains a 22.5% reversionary interest in the Hastings complex near Houston, Texas, where Denbury Resources, Inc. is currently performing an extensive CO2 enhanced oil recovery project.
