Water from the California Aqueduct, turned to steam is injected into the earth. More horizontal wells will expand consumption. See video: “We pump 1.4 million barrels of water converted to steam into the ground per day." The steam is injected, into the ground for 7 days in a row, then we let it soak for 7 days.” “Oil loosened by steam comes back out....” That's one small company in one small oil field near Bakersfield.
