Midland Basin Overview

The Midland Basin is one of the two primary basins within the larger Permian Basin, a significant sedimentary basin located in the southwestern United States. The Permian Basin is known for its prolific oil and natural gas production. The Midland Basin is situated on the eastern side of the Permian Basin and, along with the Delaware Basin on the western side, constitutes the two major sub-basins of the Permian Basin.

Key characteristics of the Midland Basin include:

  1. Location: The Midland Basin is located in West Texas, extending into southeastern New Mexico. It is adjacent to the Delaware Basin on the west, forming the eastern part of the Permian Basin.
  2. Geological Structure: Like the broader Permian Basin, the Midland Basin has a complex geological structure with various layers of sedimentary rocks. These rocks include formations such as shale, limestone, and sandstone, which can host significant hydrocarbon resources.
  3. Hydrocarbon Resources: The Midland Basin is rich in hydrocarbon resources, including both oil and natural gas. It contains a mix of conventional and unconventional reservoirs. Advances in drilling technologies, particularly horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking), have enabled the extraction of oil and gas from tight formations like shale.
  4. Economic Significance: The development of the Midland Basin has had a substantial economic impact on the region and the United States. The basin’s production contributes significantly to the country’s total oil and gas output. The economic activity includes job creation, investment, and infrastructure development.
  5. Operators and Companies: Numerous energy companies, ranging from large corporations to independent operators, are active in the Midland Basin. The basin has attracted considerable attention and investment from the global energy industry.
  6. Infrastructure: The Midland Basin is well-connected through an extensive network of pipelines and other infrastructure that facilitates the transportation of oil, natural gas, and related products. This infrastructure connects production areas to refineries, processing facilities, and markets.

The Permian Basin, including both the Midland and Delaware Basins, has been a focal point of the U.S. shale revolution, transforming the country into a leading global oil and gas producer. The combination of advanced drilling technologies and the vast hydrocarbon resources in these basins has contributed to the economic growth and energy independence of the United States.

During the last decade, hydrocarbon exploration and production in the Midland Basin were driven by development of the organic-rich, lower permeability units within the Wolfcamp and Spraberry formations. The primary counties that make up the Midland Basin includes Borden, Dawson, Martin, Midland, Upton, Reagan, Glasscock, Andrews, Crane, Gaines, Ector, Terry, Lynn, Howard and Irion counties.
