Texas has a long history of being the leading energy producing state. Oil has been king for more than a century. Natural gas became a star in the 1970s. Now the Lone Star state can brag about being the largest producer of wind power and solar is catching on, too….
Alex Mills is the former President of the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers. The Alliance is the largest state oil and gas associations in the nation with more than 3,000 members in 305 cities and 28 states.
Oil and gas operations are commonly found in remote locations far from company headquarters. Now, it's possible to monitor pump operations, collate and analyze seismic data, and track employees around the world from almost anywhere. Whether employees are in the office or in the field, the internet and related applications enable a greater multidirectional flow of information – and control – than ever before.
