The Permian Basin Development Makes New Mexico a Critical Player in U.S. Oil Production


Amidst an ongoing boom in crude oil production in the Permian Basin, an unanticipated focal point has arisen: New Mexico. Over the last two years, the state has contributed to an astonishing 50% of the total increase in oil production from this prolific oil and gas region. The stakes are high, and the unique dynamics of New Mexico’s oil and gas industry are attracting global attention. Will the state maintain its production levels while addressing environmental and infrastructural challenges?

What factors have enabled New Mexico’s rise as a significant oil and gas production player? How is the state navigating regulatory hurdles, environmental concerns, and infrastructural challenges? In a region often overlooked, how has New Mexico managed to defy the odds and achieve such monumental growth in the oil and gas sector?

Gasonomics, hosted by Tim Snyder, Chief Economist at Matador Economics, dives into these questions as he welcomes Willis Scharmer, Energy Expert at ExecHQ, to unpack the intricacies of New Mexico’s oil and gas industry. The discussion elucidates the current state of the industry, its potential challenges, and future prospects.

Key points discussed during the episode include:

  • Understanding the geographical and geological factors that have contributed to the rise in crude oil production in New Mexico
  • An in-depth discussion about the regulatory landscape in New Mexico and how the industry has managed to thrive despite it
  • An overview of the ongoing initiatives to manage environmental impact, including efforts in methane capture and emission reductions
