Brother is leaving this week to head down to Bakersfield in search of an oilfield job. He has experience fracturing. Will he find anything? What company should he apply to? Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe. Maybe also around Taft or a bit further north in Coalinga.

Seems to be a few jobs down there open.

He's been in ND for two years now. He has been commuting back and forth and just wants to find work in CA. Thanks for the info, I will pass it along!

Ooo, lessee if I can remember any oil companies I used to handle work comp claims for.

Occidental Petroleum and Chevron are 2. There's more but I don't have a list in my head that's not available on the internet easily enough.

Check out companies like KSI, Truitt, Gene Watson Construction, Braun Electric, PCL, Brinderson. They are oil field maintenance and construction companies.

Oxy seems to be one of the major players with the Monterey Shale.
