Eddy County leading the way on NM energy

A study from the Carlsbad Department of Development identifies Eddy County as the Permian Basin’s top producer of oil and gas.

This study notes healthy growing oil production in the area despite low oil prices.

However, the county’s growth has come with some growing pains.

The Census Bureau shows it as the fastest-growing community in the state, but the county has shortages pertaining to housing and available workers.
