Wise County, TX

Wise County is one of the nation's largest producing and exploration areas of Barnett Shale in Northern Texas.  For generations, natural gas has been the backbone for Texas' booming economy and has created thousands of jobs and millions in local economic stimulus dollars in Wise County alone. The Barnett Shale is the largest producer of natural gas in the nation, making Wise County a prime area of production. Texas dominates consumption of natural gas in the U.S. and accounts for over three-tenths of our natural gas reserves—making Texas a lead player towards our nation's energy independence.
