Welcome to this edition of Upstream Texas!
TIPRO is the voice of Texas' upstream sector and represents
members by lobbying at the state and federal levels to ensure
they can continue to explore for and produce oil and natural
gas. As the official bi-annual magazine of the association,
Upstream Texas features insights into the opportunities and
challenges currently facing the Texas oil and gas industry, as
well as profiles key industry players and regulators.
In this issue of Upstream Texas, read how officials in Texas
responded proactively after an uptick of seismic activity in the
state at the end of 2013. Learn more about the state's TexNet
program, a world-class seismic monitoring system that will
provide Texans with better understanding of seismicity in the
future. To see more, turn to page 8.
In addition, starting on page 10, discover what independent
producers can expect moving into 2018. Leading energy data
analytics company Drillinginfo explains why 2017 is seen as
"the comeback year" for the U.S. oil and gas industry and offers
an outlook for the oil and gas sector. In its forecast, Drillinginfo
also shares with Upstream readers projections for the Permian,
the basin now representing the largest contribution to growing
U.S. oil production.
Lastly, inside this edition of TIPRO's magazine, review a special
infographic showcasing TIPRO's advocacy efforts on behalf
of members throughout the 2017 Texas Legislative Session.
While legislators deliberated over policy during session,
the association proudly educated lawmakers on measures
beneficial to the oil and gas industry, and worked to defeat
onerous legislation that would deter E&P activity in Texas.
Turn to page 13 to see more.
And, as always, this publication also features profiles of industry
and state leaders, including: Texas State Representative Brooks
Landgraf (page 14); Texas Water Development Board Chairman
Bech Bruun (page 15); and Parsley Energy CEO Bryan Sheffield
