Oil and gas exploration is critical to New Mexico. It provides one-third of the state's budget, is our largest employer, and helps educate our children. Hilcorp has invested enormous amounts of capital into developing oil and gas wells in the northwest part of the state. They now have a strategy that will allow efficient production of energy from the Blanco Mesaverde Pool. It will involve further capital investment, jobs for New Mexicans and revenue to the state and local governments which helps everyone.
The “environmental” groups, however, are opposing this new plan based on fiction and bad information. Don't let radical 'keep it in the ground' groups kill jobs and be the only voice on this issue.
That matter is before the Oil Conservation commission. Send the decision makers an email today with the automated form on this page. You can modify the letter however you like and provide Commissioners with important facts in just a couple of minutes.
