PRESS RELEASE (10/18/2013) – A recent IHS CERA study confirmed that a growing U.S. oil and natural gas industry has already created 1.2 million jobs. What’s more? That number is expected to grow to 3.3 million in just seven years.
In the Eagle Ford Shale, a San Antonio Express-News review found that counties hosting development saw an average increase in per capita income of 13.62 percent between 2008 and 2011. For comparison, Texas saw a 1.3 percent increase over that time.
In Pennsylvania, Marcellus Shale development supports over 239,000 jobs. More than 30,000 of these jobs pay upwards of $80,000 per year. This exceeds average wages for all other industries by nearly $35,000. It even exceeds the Keystone State’s average household income of $51,651 according to the 2010 Census.
It’s also worth noting that a burgeoning oil and natural gas industry also boosts manufacturing jobs; a long-time staple of the Midwest economy.
Billions of dollars in investment capital and production revenue are flowing Texas, South Dakota, Ohio and Pennsylvania, literally transcending our national economy.
