Upstream oil and gas employment in Texas continued to grow in November, with the sector adding 2,600 jobs versus October, data from the Texas Workforce Commission show.

October’s gain also was revised upward to 3,100 from the original estimate of 2,800, said the Texas Oil and Gas Association (TXOGA) in its monthly summary of the data.

“Texas oil and natural gas producers adding jobs while continuing to help to meet our energy needs is a testament to the ingenuity, determination, and resiliency of this industry which fuels our modern way of life,” said TXOGA President Todd Staples. “Texans value the indispensable role that the oil and natural gas industry plays in our state’s economy, our budget and our communities.”
