The Barnett Shale is Powering Progress

The Barnett Shale is powering progress at a time when America needs it most. The Barnett has created more than 100,000 area jobs. And while cities across America are facing dramatic budget shortfalls, it’s generating millions in tax revenue for North Texas communities and schools.

The Barnett Shale is one of the largest producing natural gas fields in America, with nearly 40 trillion cubic feet of resources – enough to power Texas homes for more than 200 years. And it has the potential to greatly increase our domestic supplies and strengthen America's energy security.

As citizens of North Texas and stewards of this remarkable resource, we’re striving to maximize its benefits for everyone. It is our mission to conserve natural gas for good use – and our commitment to do so in an environmentally responsible manner. It’s why we’re minimizing our impact every step of the way, and working tirelessly to protect our air, water and land.

We all live here. And we each have a stake in ensuring all progress is positive in the Barnett Shale.
