And it runs through the western part of Madera County. “Madera is part of the state that hasn’t historically had oil and gas production. But if that Monterey shale, if the oil and gas operators are able to figure out how to produce from it, this may be an area where that happens,” said Jason Marshall with the Department of Conservation.
