Permian Basin Oil Show to Return After COVID-19 Shut it Down Last Year
It was supposed to happen in October of 2020, but COVID-19 had other plans, so this year it is back.
According to CBS 7, the date kept getting pushed back and pushed back and now it is finally happening.
Next week the Ector County Coliseum will be full of oilfield companies from all over the world to see what new products and equipment are on the horizon for the oil industry, but there is other stuff to be shown also.
“We were just setting a 6 by 20 vertical heat treater. Something which is very common out in the oil and gas field, out on tank batteries across the nation,” said Shannon Thompson, the North American Service Manager for Dragon Products.
The show will be a place where companies can come see and try out the newest technology as well as buy and sell that technology.
“Pioneer, Oxy, Chevron, Shell, Calen, those are all companies that will be coming out here to look at equipment,” said Thompson.
The show is a necessity for the Permian Basin because of the economic boost to the area.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing the good customers out there and during the course of the last year and a half of COVID and making sure that we’re establishing because there’s been a sea of changes within personnel in the oil and gas industry. So we’re looking forward to cement and continue with existing relationships and form new relationships.”
The oil show begins Tuesday, October 19, and runs through Thursday, October 21, 2021.
