Aera Energy & GlassPoint To Build California’s Largest Solar Farm At Belridge Oilfield

Aera Energy, one of California’s largest oil and gas producers, will partner with GlassPoint Solar to build the State’s largest solar energy project at the Belridge oilfield west of Bakersfield.  Belridge Solar will be comprised of an 850 MW (megawatt) solar thermal facility which will produce 12 million barrels of steam per year, in conjunction with a 26.5 MW solar PV facility that will generate electricity.

Announced on Wednesday, Aera Energy — a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil — will partner with GlassPoint Solar, the industry-leading supplier of solar energy for the global oil and gas industry, to build California’s largest solar energy project at the Belridge oilfield, operated by Aera Energy, located west of Bakersfield. The integrated solar farm will be a first of its kind project in the world to use solar steam as well as solar electricity to power oilfield operations while simultaneously reducing carbon emissions.
