Texas Oil and Gas Jobs are Roaring Back – With the Highest Pay in Any Sector!

For 23 consecutive months, Texas oil and gas companies added new jobs in exploration and production — 2,400 new jobs in October alone.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, data compiled by the Texas Workforce Commission and the Texas Oil & Gas Association confirm that since 2016, employment in the Texas upstream sector has increased by a whopping 56,000 jobs. Best of all, the jobs are among the highest paying in any sector!

For oil and gas workers – and for the Texas economy – 23 months of new jobs prove that Texas oil and gas is on the rebound from its low point between 2014 and 2016.

“Our economy, our environment and our future are more secure because of what’s happening in the oil and natural gas industry in Texas,” noted Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association.
