Signal Hill Petroleum recently invested in high-tech seismic trucks that carry mobile technology capable of detecting pockets of oil deep underground. The vehicles, which have “monster truck” wheels, are being used to detect if indeed there are millions of gallons of crude oil in as-yet-undiscovered reservoirs deep in the ground beneath Signal Hill and Long Beach. If such is the case, and those reservoirs can be detected, this area could experience a miniature version of the oil boom that took place here starting in the 1920s.
