Stallion's new Kenedy office opened earlier in the summer and includes an 80 person man camp. The 50-acre super-yard is one of several locations the company has in South Texas servicing the Eagle Ford Shale. Stallion now has locations in Carrizo Springs, Tilden, Victoria, and Alice. The company has expanded quickly over the past few years to answer the call for various oilfield service needs in the area.

Operators look to Stallion to provide not only a comprehensive set of wellsite and production services but also deliver well-trained and safety conscious service technicians. The new facility is also home to an 80-man camp used to provide onsite accommodations for the Company’s service personnel.

Stallion provides a range of oilfield services, wellsite support, completion, production and logistics services for oil and gas exploration and production companies, drilling contractors, and other service companies. Services offered include South Texas workforce accommodations, production and fluid logistics services, surface equipment rental, wellsite construction, solids control services, and communications with wellsites.

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.

Schlumberger Planning San Antonio Office Too

Schlumberger's San Antonio office will likely come not long after Halliburton's office is announced. The company's Eagle Ford Shale office will not rival the size of Halliburton's, but Schlumberger has a major presence the surrounding areas. Still good news for San Antonio.

Fresh off Thursday's revelation that Halliburton Co. is looking to build a "supersite" in the San Antonio area, a county official disclosed that another heavy hitter in oil services wants a piece of the action.


Schlumberger, the world's largest oil field services company, with offices in Houston, Paris and The Hague, Netherlands, is proposing to establish a site in south Bexar County, said David Marquez, executive director of Bexar County's economic development department.

He said Schlumberger's operation would not be as large as what Halliburton is considering, "but it's still significant and still in the southern part of the county."

Marquez declined to say more about what Schlumberger is considering. Schlumberger did not return a call seeking comment.

San Antonio Commercial Real Estate Gets Eagle Ford Boost

The San Antonio commercial real estate market is already doing better than last year and one of the influencing factors is the increase in oil & gas industry activity from the Eagle Ford Shale. Chesapeake Energy opened an office recently and Baker Hughes plans a 400 person office southeast of the city. Those are two of the largest deals, but many more will follow as service companies and producers move closer to manage their South Texas Eagle Ford operations. The Eagle Ford rig count in the 30 county area we watch was 227 rigs as of last Friday, August 19. As operators continue delineating their acreage, there's no indication that will change dramatically in the near future.

While the market isn’t experiencing a boom, commercial real estate in San Antonio is starting to rally.

“San Antonio has been spared, we’re doing fairly well,” said Kim Gatley, senior vice president and director of research for NAI REOC. “And now we’re starting to see some traction of improvement. We’re starting to see an uptick, an improvement in the market.”

Another helping hand is expected to come from the energy sector, Gatley said. As activity associated with Eagle Ford shale starts to heat up, she anticipates more businesses moving to the Alamo City.

“Just when you think things can’t get any worse, they get better,” said Terri Rubiola, a vice president at DH Realty Partners. “It’s already better than last year, and we’re optimistic that it will continue to get better.”

Baker Hughes San Antonio Office Coming

Baker Hughes unveiled plans to build a $30 million facility in Southeast Bexar County, near San Antonio.  The building will be Baker Hughes' Eagle Ford Shale and South Texas Headquarters. The office will ad as many as 400 Eagle Ford jobs to the area. The Eagle Ford Shale has created a job boom in San Antonio, as well as much of South Texas. As development expands, the number of job openings looks like it has only one way to go.

"Oilfield supplier Baker Hughes Inc. on Tuesday disclosed plans to build a $30 million operations center in Southeast Bexar County to support the booming activity in the Eagle Ford shale, eventually providing more than 400 jobs, officials said."

"The Houston-based company said it will develop 64 acres at Interstate 37 and U.S. 181 to establish an administrative headquarters serving South Texas. The plans were made public at Bexar County Commissioners Court, which authorized negotiations on a 10-year tax break for the operation."

“ 'This is a big deal,' said County Judge Nelson Wolff, who embraced the proposal saying it would be good for South Side job development. 'We've all been working on this, and I really hope this comes together right,' Wolff said."
