Halliburton San Antonio Office to be a Bexar County Supersite

Halliburton’s San Antonio office will be here soon and it will be big news for Bexar County. The quote of the article is “supersite”. Halliburton has over 2,100 employees in South Texas. That’s a good indication of how many people could be directed from the San Antonio office. That number will likely grow with drilling and production in the Eagle Ford.

The site for the proposed Halliburton office has yet to be determined, but the company owns 150 acres at the northeast corner of Loop 1604 and Interstate 37 in southeast Bexar County, TX.

You can bet the office will bring several hundred jobs and possibly 1,000+ to the San Antonio area. Baker Hughes’s San Antonio operations center was announced a little over a month ago and it is expected to bring 400 jobs to the area. Weatherford’s Bexar County office is just across the street from where Halliburton owns land and on top of that, Schlumberger’s South Texas office will likely be announced in the coming months.

I’d bet the greatest number of jobs will be sourced from Halliburton’s office. Just being conservative, those four companies will easily add 1,000 full time jobs to the area. There are already lots of openings and this will add to the booming energy job market in South Texas. If you’re looking for a career in energy, search Eagle Ford Shale Jobs Here.

Oil-field services giant Halliburton Co. is shopping for a “supersite” in San Antonio that would employ hundreds to serve its clients that are drilling in the Eagle Ford shale, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said Thursday.

“It looks promising,” Wolff said, and added that Halliburton likely will make a decision in 30 to 60 days.

If Houston-based Halliburton does establish a major office in San Antonio, it “would be the biggest (Eagle Ford-related company) in terms of employment as well as diversity of the jobs,” Wolff said.

Because the company would bring high-paying jobs, landing it would be tantamount to San Antonio’s winning the Toyota pickup plant, he said.

Wolff and former Mayor Henry Cisneros, along with local economic development officials, met with six Halliburton officials Thursday in Houston.

    What is the demand for ice, water or drink deliveries to different sites? Who would a person get in contact with for such deliveries?

    • laurah says:

      Earl,

      You’re probably going to have to reach out to each individual company.

      When you have a moment, check out the Eagle Ford MarketPlace. We’ve had good feedback from advertisers there.

      Have a great day!
