Stallion’s new Kenedy office opened earlier in the summer and includes an 80 person man camp.

The new facility is also home to an 80-man camp used to provide onsite accommodations for the Company’s service personnel. [Read more…]

Alice TX – No Drilling, But Still a Boom Time

Alice Texas doesn’t sit in the fairway of the Eagle Ford Shale, but it sure seems to be benefiting. A $6 million sales tax surplus was realized over the past year. The city budgeted income of $650,000 per month and only one month came in under $1,000,000.

For reference, Alice’s population is somewhere around 20,000. Companies with hundreds of employees make a big impact.
