Energy companies are likely to invest more than $100 billion in Texas in the next few years to extract oil from the shales. In 2011 alone, the boom created more than 38,000 jobs in South Texas and poured more than $500 million into local and state coffers, according to a report by the University of Texas-San Antonio. Along with actually finding a fracking job, the biggest concern for most individuals who seek oilfield employment is finding a place to live near the job site. The largest and most productive oil shale plays are also in rather remote regions, far from large metropolitan areas. Because of this, housing has become an issue not only for potential oilfield employees, but their prospective employers as well. Unless you already live near a fracking boom town, you’ll have to consider where you’ll park your work boots in between shifts.
