Clearview is the name of an oil extraction project proposed by the Mobil Corporation.

The oil well complex would sit on the campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), but the wells themselves would extend out under the ocean, to tap a proven offshore oil field (the South Ellwood Field) under the Santa Barbara Channel in front of the UCSB campus.

On June 22, 1995, the UCSB Chancellor, Chancellor Yang, announced that UCSB did not intend to lease Mobil the land for the Clearview site.

On February 9, 1996 the Mobil Corporation announced that they would cease to pursue the project. They had studied sites off the UCSB campus, and concluded that those sites were not economically feasible.
