Bryce Erickson, ASA, MRICS, senior vice president, was quoted in the D CEO Magazine article, “Eureka! A New Energy Boom is taking Hold in Texas, From the Permian Basin to Dallas’ Crescent Court.” The article provides a macro overview of how the Permian Basin has energized the Dallas Fort-Worth area.
North Texas is home to 21 of the country’s 132 publicly traded oil and gas companies, several of these companies are on the leading edge of innovation. Pioneer Natural Resources, located in Fort Worth, is one of many of local players that developed well enhancements to improve fracking efficiency in the Permian. Bryce comments on these modern-day innovators:
“What you see in hydraulic fracturing is that the craft continues to improve…” says Erickson, “whether it’s the ‘zipper’ or the ‘Texas two-step,’ what you see are different frack combinations to increase efficiency.”
