Texas’s Energy Sector Goes Beyond Oil And Gas
21 Apr 2022
If Texas were a country — and many of us feel like it already is — it would rank fourth in the world for crude oil production, behind the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Overall, Texas reigns as the No. 1 state for energy production, with the energy sector valued at $172 billion and employing more than 292,000 people. Simply put, Texas is a global powerhouse in the energy industry.
Since energy in Russia and everywhere else has been in the news a lot lately, I thought it might be a good time to remind ourselves of just how vital the energy sector is to Texas and the rest of the world.
