Welcome to Anterra

For every barrel of oil produced, an oil well generates about 10 barrels of salt water. Anterra’s commercial, non-hazardous, Class II injection wells are used to safely dispose the salt water that is extracted during the production process into the Conejo-Topanga Volcanics Formation at a depth of over 5700 feet. While there are over 440 privately owned injection wells used in Ventura County, Anterra operates the only commercial injection well. All such wells are regulated by the California Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR). For more information on Injection Wells, visit FAQs page.
