In the association’s “State of Energy Report,” oil-and-gas employment in Texas totaled 411,600 jobs in 2013, an increase of 23,100 jobs over 2012. Nationwide, the industry employed slightly more than 1 million people in 2013, which was an increase fo 30,800 jobs over 2012. Texas lead the nation in employment in 2013, followed by North Dakota (2,100 jobs), Oklahoma (1,800 jobs) and New Mexico (1,700 jobs) between the two years.

In addition, Texas oil and gas companies paid a record $13.6 billion in state and local taxes, and state royalty payments for fiscal year 2013. This is an increase of $1.2 billion over 2012.

TIPRO President Ed Longanecker said in a release that Texas leads the nation in employment and pdroduction due, in part, to the state’s pro-business environment and sensible legislative and regulatory perspective.“States that adopt overreaching regulations targeting oil and gas development will inevitably experience a progressive, or even dramatic decline in these high paying jobs and all associated benefits,” he said.

Oil-and-gas workers were paid a national annualwage of $103,400 in 2013. This industry had a payroll of $105 billion in 2013, up 1 percent from 2012.
