Women For Natural Gas

Strengthening Our Communities

With Texas as the number one oil and natural gas producing state in the nation, oil and natural gas development plays a central role in the state economy, serving as a key economic driver in communities throughout Texas.

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.

Organizations like The Permian Road Safety Coalition work to bring together oil and natural gas operators with other business and community members to improve the infrastructure in the region.
