The Permian Basin at 100
This special publication celebrates the rich history of 100 years in the Permian, from famous wildcatters to historic wells—gushers and failures alike. It looks at the technologies that made a difference. We don't send nitroglycerin bombs downhole anymore; we do rely on artificial intelligence, remote control centers and recycled water. We transport crude oil from the Permian to the Gulf Coast and export it to many countries.
The world has changed dramatically in the past 100 years and so has the Permian's role within it. It will do so again. But the entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, persistence and daring of the Permian players will continue on.
