The U.S. oil and gas industry added new jobs faster than the total private sector during the year that ended in June, jumping 2.6 percent over the previous year and pushing the industry’s roster past 1 million jobs nationwide, according to a new report.

Oil and gas companies also climbed past the private sector in the 18 months before June, up 5.7 percent on a jump of activity in the industry’s support sector, which is typically ushered in by higher investment from U.S. exploration and production companies. Of the 54,900 workers added to oil and gas payrolls between January 2012 and June 2013, about half fell in the support sector.

Oil and gas jobs soar to new milestone. The U.S. oil and gas industry added new jobs faster than the private sector during the year that ended in June, jumping 2.6 percent over the previous year and pushing the industry’s roster past 1 million jobs nationwide. The industry grew 2.4 percent in that six-month period. credited the advent of horizontal drilling and advances in hydraulic fracturing with a surge in oil and gas production. Unlocking new resources has pushed U.S. oil production to a 15-year high at 6.5 million barrels per day.
More fracking, more chance to pollute the surface and underground waters. Properly treat the fracking water so it can be released safely on the surface. Recycle water into the underground rocks fracturing Only if there are NO contaminates or pollutants injected into the underground water and rock system at the same time.
Anyone for flaming water from the kitchen faucet? How about More earthquakes from additional ground water and fracking operations?
We need clean drinkable water and uncontaminated lakes and streams!
Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into Stanley! **I've got some oil and gas!!!!!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
