    TXOGA: Texas oil and gas powers football season

    September 18, 2023 - Mella McEwen, Oil Editor, Midland Reporter-Telegram, Texas


      Sep. 16--Autumn in Texas is a magical time, with excitement in the air.

      This excitement isn't just from the onset of the fall season, but from the anticipation of a beloved tradition -- football season. As fans gear up for thrilling games, tailgate parties and unforgettable moments, there's an unsung hero ensuring the spectacle runs seamlessly: the Texas oil and natural gas industry.

      Lighting up the Gridiron

      When football games light up the Texas night sky, it's not just the teams that are in action. Behind those bright lights is the energy sector, ensuring a consistent and uninterrupted power supply. So, every time the crowd erupts after a touchdown or marvels at a halftime show, remember it's the hard work of the Texas oil and natural gas industry that illuminates these moments.

      On the Road to Victory

      The spirit of football isn't just confined to the stadiums; it's in the journeys fans undertake to support their favorite teams. From family cars to fan-filled buses, the Texas oil and natural gas industry ensures that every vehicle is powered and ready to hit the road.

      Barbecue Blitz & Tailgate Triumphs

      Nothing complements a football game like a classic Texan barbecue. The sizzle of the grill, the aroma of perfectly grilled grub -- these are essential elements of an unforgettable tailgate party. And ensuring that these grills are always roaring? The Texas oil and natural gas industry, of course.

      Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

      Football teaches us the importance of unity, collaboration and teamwork. Similarly, our industry thrives on partnerships. From the dedicated workers extracting resources to the professionals managing intricate supply chains, everyone has a part to play in the Texas oil and natural gas industry.

      Extra Point Tip

      Did you know that many football equipment items, like cleats, helmets and even the pigskin footballs themselves, are made with materials derived from petroleum products? Without the oil and natural gas industry, the game might look a bit different.

      As the football season takes center stage, it's the energy provided by the Texas oil and natural gas industry that keeps the show running.

      With such a robust support system behind us, there's no game too big to tackle. Here's to another thrilling season.
