Chesapeake’s South Texas Campus Continues to Expand – Pearsall

A 300-unit housing development and almost 200,000 sq ft of office space in Pearsall, TX

Chesapeake’s South Texas Campus in Pearsall is expanding further as the company completes a 300-unit housing development sometime in October. Eagle Ford housing demand far outstrips supply in this area of the play and many of the company men drive from San Antonio to work each day. The housing facility sits on a 285-acre campus where the company has almost 200,000 square feet of office space in use or under construction.

In a few short years, Chesapeake has grown its full time staff from virtually zero to over 600 employees. Don’t expect that trend to change anytime soon. Chesapeake has plans to spend 40% of its capital budget in the Eagle Ford in 2013.

    @RT.. I have read many articles stating the need for truck drivers. I read the article of eagle ford shale jobs still not filled. I’ve tried the website you provided but I don’t find much work for a truck driver.. I’m in Houston but willing to drive to south Texas to visit each site if I have to. my problem is how would I get a listing of companies looking specifically for class A’s? And where their recruiting offices are located?
