Texas Oilfield Services Companies are Changing Global Oil and Gas Economics

In the next 5-10 years, Texas oilfield services companies may very well change dynamics and politics of oil and gas.

Oilfield service companies benefit from oil and gas drilling in Texas

Nearly 30% of U.S. oil rigs are drilling in Texas – May 2013.

Thousands of small and mid-sized oilfield services companies are growing because of the oil and gas boom currently taking place in Texas. Oilfield drilling companies, oilfield services and supply companies, material suppliers, caterers, land clearing companies, trucking and logistics companies are all finding their place in the Eagle Ford Shale, Cline Shale, Barnett Shale, Woodforest Shale, and Haynesville-Boosier Shale plays.

In 2013 $61 billion in economic activity occured in the Eagle Ford Shale Play alone. Experts are cautiously predicting that the Cline Shale area may be 3-4 times the size of the Eagle Ford Shale.

  1. Great article Sam — very excited about the small and mid-sized oilfield services companies taking off… especially interested to see more young folks step up to the plate and fill the ‘generation gap’ in the industry… thanks for sharing the article!
