The San Joaquin Basin in PADD 5 is on the rise after declining 26% from 2005 to 2010. The basin is expected to climb to 351 Mb/d by the end of 2016, with the biggest driver behind the production increase being the exploration around the Monterey Shale formation. Even with San Joaquin Basin production increases, BENTEK reports that total PADD 5 production is slated to decline 7% over the next five years.
