Natural gas does more than heat your home or power your stove… Natural gas saves water and lowers carbon emissions compared to a lot of other power sources.
The abundance of oil and gas in Texas helps keep prices at the pump lower.
FLIPPING THE BARREL
A Women's Perspective in Oil and Gas
Providing Jobs: Oil and gas isn't just for the boys! By 2035 women are expected to account for 290,000 oil and gas jobs around the country. These jobs are high paying and have great benefits.
Supporting Education: Oil and natural gas development is one of the largest supporters to the Texas education system! Thanks to royalties from oil and natural gas production on university lands, Texas has two of the largest endowments in the country.
Strengthening Out Communities: In 2018, oil and natural gas paid $14 billion in state and local taxes and royalties. This helped fund our schools, infrastructure, fire responders and other important services we rely on every day.
Providing Affordable and Reliable Energy: Natural gas accounted for half the power generation in Texas in 2018! This means Texans paid 20% less than the national average for electricity. Natural gas is not only affordable, but it also is helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions!
