Located in Bakersfield, California, we are engaged in the exploration, development, and production of natural gas and crude oil.  As a company, we believe that to achieve economic success in day-to-day oil and gas field operations, a detailed review of past history and a close monitoring of current on-going operations are a priority.  Today, Northwest Petroleum has an experienced team of management and geological consultants that utilize the latest 3D seismic data to generate quality drilling prospects. 

Northwest Petroleum, Inc. has been built on the foundation that care and quality bring success.  In 1995, Northwest Petroleum, Inc. was listed on the one-fifth most active drilling operators list in California's Natural Gas Country located in District 6 (Northern California) of California State Department of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources.  In Sacramento Petroleum Association's Annual Review of Natural Gas Drilling Activities Report compiled by Mike Cummings of the DOGGR and presented by Consulting Petroleum Geologist Roland J.
