2020 Texas Oil and Natural Gas Legislative District Vital Statistics

January 11, 2021

Each Legislative Session, TXOGA releases vital statistic 1-pagers for every Texas legislative district reflecting the positive influence of oil and natural gas, including jobs and revenue generated by this industry, as well as the oil and natural gas production and royalty data. TXOGA will soon be releasing these 1-pagers for every Texas House and Senate district reflecting updated data including that in fiscal year 2020, the Texas oil and natural gas industry paid $13.9 billion in state and local taxes and state royalties – that’s the equivalent of $38 million each day. And since 2007, the industry has paid over $169 billion.

These revenues go towards directly funding our public schools and universities, teachers, building and repairing roads and other infrastructure, and supporting first responders and other essential services. Additionally, the Texas oil and natural gas industry is providing some of the best-paying jobs in Texas, taking the lead in developing environmental solutions that are working to reduce emissions and flaring, and securing our status as the nation’s leader in oil and natural gas production, pipeline miles and refining capacity. Further, nearly every in-demand product we need to be safe, to save lives and to power our economy – from face shields and hand sanitizers to high-speed internet connections and computers – is made possible by oil and natural gas. Economists estimate that oil and natural gas represents 30.5% of Texas’ Gross State Product.
