Horizontal Drilling & More in the Permian Basin

If you are looking to drill for oil or natural gas in the United States, one of the best places to start looking is the Permian Basin. The basin itself is huge: 250 miles wide and 300 miles long, it stretches from south of Lubbock, TX to south of Midland and Odessa, TX, and then meanders westward into New Mexico. So far, the basin has produced a cumulative 75 trillion cu ft. of gas and 28.9 billion barrels of oil, with another 2 million barrels of oil being pumped every day.

Why is the Permian Basin such a rich source of oil? For hundreds of millions of years, huge numbers of rocks and life were deposited into the basin. As various lifeforms broke down, the carbon in their cells was transformed into oil and natural gas. Millions of years of this treatment is the reason why humans have been able to harvest so much oil and natural gas from the basin, with more to come. Some experts estimate that 18 trillion cu ft. of gas and 43 billion barrels of oil remain in the basin.

Because of this, the Permian Basin is the center of much oil and gas activity in the United States. Many oil and natural gas companies are headquartered in cities like Midland and Odessa. Directional drilling companies make their home here, too – companies like Terra Directional Services LLC.
