California Bans High-Pressure Steam Oil Wells

California intensified its battle against fossil fuels by halting new permits for a key production technique following leaks at a Chevron Corp. facility in an area that has pumped crude for more than a century.

In his latest salvo against the petroleum industry, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered regulators to assess the safety of high-pressure steamflooding, according to a Department of Conservation statement on Tuesday. Hydraulic fracturing and other oil-production methods also will be examined.

“This marks the turning of the tide against the oil industry” in California, said Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity. (Bloomberg)
