General Mtg: The Impact and Regulation of Texas Oil & Gas Production


Commissioner Craddick will address the impact of the Texas oil and gas industry on the Texas and national economic stage. The role of the Texas Railroad Commission regulating the oil & gas industry in Texas will also be discussed.    

Texas the number one oil and gas producer in the U.S. with a little over 256,000 active oil and gas wells at the end of June, 2014. Texas has a stellar environmental and public safety record, while fostering a job-creating industry that is immensely important to the Texas and U.S. economies.

America’s competitiveness in the world’s oil market and independence from OPEC is led by Texas production and regulation of that production by the Texas Railroad Commission.

The vast amount of energy production occurring in Texas (and in the U.S.) can be part of a solution and an opportunity to address our struggling national economy. Texas specifically presents a strong case as an opportunity to use energy production as a solution for job growth, economic stimulus and long term goals of energy security.
