Infographic Published on August 15, 2019

Recent advances such as hydraulic fracturing, horizontal drilling, as well as new discoveries, increased exports, and infrastructure improvements will lead to less volatility, larger scale drilling programs, increased cycle times, and a larger permanent workforce and population. These changes and their associated spin-off effects will lead to myriad economic benefits, including increased output (real gross product), greater personal income, new (and higher paying) jobs, additional retail sales, and enhanced tax revenues. The resulting growth brings enormous potential benefits, but also has profound implications for housing, infrastructure, education, health & wellness, and quality of place. Proactive efforts to prepare for the coming growth can position the area to emerge stronger and more prosperous in the future.
