California Code of Regulations (CCR) for Surface Facility Projects

Stuart M. Heisler, PE
Co-Founder and Senior Technical Director
Anacapa Engineering and Design, Inc.


The State of California regulates the design of oil field surface facilities through the California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 16 Business and Professions Code and Title 8 Industrial Relations. These regulations were established as a result of incredible and avoidable industrial accidents causing thousands of deaths in the early 1900s. This presentation reviews the history of these regulations and explains the minimum requirements for designing oil field facilities in California.

After earning a BS in Chemical Engineering at Wayne State University in 1982, he started his career with Shell Oil as a Production Engineer. He then worked as a Facilities Engineer for Chevron in the late 1980s before taking a position as a Process Engineer at TJ Cross Engineers in 1990 where he eventually became a partner and the Engineering Manager until the firm was acquired in 2015. After a brief stint at retirement, in 2017 Stuart co-founded Anacapa Engineering and Design, Inc. in Bakersfield, Ca.
