The Oil Companies Involved


So you want to know who the big money is on this oil project? 

It not Matrix Oil, its Clayton Williams Energy who is worth over 742 Million Dollars.  For whatever reason the City Council does not talk about them.  Matrix is the little guy on this Oil Lease, it's Clayton Williams Energy who is the MEGA Company.  Look below - This is right off of the Signed Lease Agreement with the City of Whittier.  Look who has the highest percentage of the lease.  Its a sure bet that Clayton Williams Energy will be calling the shots on this project.  Which means who will make the call for the alternatives for the project.  My money is on Clayton Williams with 75% of the lease.





THIS OIL, GAS AND MINERAL LEASE (hereinafter "Lease") is, made and entered into this 28th day of October, 2008, by and between the CITY OF WHITTIER, a charter municipality of the State of California with a mailing address at 13230 Penn Street, Whittier, CA 90602 (hereinafter called "Lessor"), and Matrix Oil Corporation, a

Clayton Williams Energy Uses Whittier Main Oil Field Project to Recruit Investors

As part of a presentation to get Investors for their Company.  Clayton Williams Energy uses the Whittier Main Oil Field Project to recruit investors.  This was done at a conference in New York on April 12, 2010.  This should prove just how big this project really is.  The lease will allow them to develop all 1,290 acres and you can bet they probably will.  Anyone that thinks they are not going to be affect is wrong.  This project will be huge.  Once it starts you won't be able to stop it.  The bottom two points are from their slides 18 & 19 of the power point presentation.
