    Chevron USA Production Company in Bakersfield, California and Schlumberger Oilfield Services have formed a 'Value Enhancement Alliance' to improve recovery from the Lost Hills oil field discovered in 1910 in Kern County, California.

    The alliance pools the technical and scientific expertise of both companies in the search for new solutions specific to increasing the field's recovery and production.

    The alliance, which integrates Schlumberger project management and technical personnel into Chevron's Bakersfield office, will focus on all areas of the recovery and production process.

    The collaboration between the two companies is expected to result in new innovations associated with improved drilling and fracture techniques, reservoir analysis methods, and downhole treatment fluids and tools.
