Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach (118.001W 33.672N) was the location of an important oil field in 1941. The field had been producing since 1920, when a wildcat well was drilled on the advice of  geologist S.M. Gester. This was the first time an oil field was located through the advice of a petroleum engineer. By 1942 there were 690 wells producing 13,200,000 barrels per year, which was rapidly ramped up to over 17,000,000 barrels in 1943 and for the remainder of the war.
