Commissioner Ryan Sitton Highlights Global Impact of Permian Basin Oil Boom at PBPA Annual Meeting
News Release
Thursday, October 25, 2018

MIDLAND - Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton opened the Permian Basin Petroleum Association Annual Meeting today with an overview of how the record oil production of the region is positioning Texas as a global energy leader.

"Permian Basin output has positioned America to be a global leader in energy production," Sitton said. "Oil and gas production in the Permian has grown exponentially over the last few years, bringing with it unprecedented job growth and revenue for the State of Texas. It is dramatically improving America's economic strength and national security, and I think that is something every Texan can get excited about."

Sitton also addressed the need for more investments in pipeline capacity and in improving Gulf Coast ports to handle the increase in global export demand.

The PBPA Annual Meeting brings together industry and government leaders to discuss key issues facing oil and natural gas production in the Permian Basin region. Topics discussed included the upcoming Texas Legislative Session, takeaway capacity, and the regulatory environment.
