Texas oil production now is 28 million barrels daily and growing at a rapid rate as 5,000 new shale "Fracked" wells come on line in the Eagle Ford area alone every year...
Eagle Ford shale in Texas is about 50 miles wide and 400 miles long from the Rio Grande river to east Texas.
5,000 new wells being drilled annually, 25 billion barrels estimated still to be tapped in what is referred to as ...tight rock shale. Texas oil industry last year Added 28,600 oil jobs 224,200 now working in Oil exploration and production in Texas..
More production jobs now in Oil beating out natural gas for the first time since 97.
Jobs have expanded now for 18 months in a row.. Growth has been primarily in Eagle Ford Shale but Big expansion is starting in the Wolfberry shale in West Texas.
Wolfberry is a combination of several shales in west Texas and the combination of all of them in the Permian basin are called the "Wolfberry, which is becoming a new "hot spot".
Roustabout definition: an unskilled worker on an oil platform. Roughneck definition: A member of the oil drilling crew other then the driller.
Huge Demand for Truck Drivers Created
Each fracked Texas oil well requires 200 truckloads of water and 100 truckloads of sand. Plus around 4 Miles of pipe trucked in per well plus chemicals.
After fracking, requires 80 truckloads removed and trucked to reuse on another well or to a municipal disposal system or sometimes pumped into deep disposal wells.. Many will need oil produced trucked away until pipe lines built. Some will be thousands of barrels per day.
Multiply those truck trips per well, times the 5,000 fracked wells each year in Eagle Ford area alone, you see a huge Texas demand for highly paid truck drivers.
These thousands of new employees each year require housing. Since this drilling rate is expected to last 20 years there will be a boom in conventional as well as temporary housing construction.
If you have any skills in housing construction, finding a high pay job in oil areas, ups the wage scale since they have to pay you enough to keep you from going to work for the oil companies.
