Vast quantities of oil and natural gas were known to exist
in American shale formations, but no one knew how to get
it out of the tighter, less porous rock.
Combining two time-tested drilling technologies
unlocked its amazing potential.
Today, the U.S. is the world’s largest natural gas producer.
And since 2008, our oil and gas production has grown faster
than any country in the world. And it all started right here in Texas –
bringing jobs, economic growth and new energy for our country.
Domestic natural gas will continue to energize Houston and our
for a long time to come. That’s why we want to expand
Baytown facility to benefit from America’s abundant supplies
and become more competitive in global markets. For Houston,
that means jobs and economic activity flowing to our city.
