Publisher’s Note

Welcome to yet another great issue of SHALE Magazine.

We are happy to have Tracee Bentley, President and CEO of the Permian Strategic Partnership, gracing our cover on the March/April edition of SHALE Magazine. 

As we all know, the Permian Basin is buzzing with energy activity. While the world focuses on current events that have widespread effects, such as trade discussions and coronavirus, West Texas continues to produce and transport natural resources to meet domestic and international demand. In addition to the continued growth of energy production in the Permian Basin, the area is seeing a wave of infrastructure growth as well to accommodate the influx of residents and visitors. 

Part of that infrastructure growth is a result of a newly-formed organization, the Permian Strategic Partnership (PSP). This organization is doing wonderful things to lessen the impacts of huge population growth and modernization of the area to make it more accommodating to current residents and appealing to those considering making the Permian their home with the support of the oil and natural gas industry. Learn more about this organization and its steadfast leader, Tracee Bentley, in the cover story of this issue. 

As 2020 is now well underway, SHALE and Texas Energy Advocates Coalition (TEAC) have a full year of plans to make networking with us and other energy professionals and advocates even easier. I encourage you all to join TEAC by visiting and sign up for SHALE’s newsletter on to stay apprised of upcoming events and networking opportunities. 


Our signature event will be our annual State of Energy luncheon, being held in Corpus Christi at the Omni Hotel on Sept. 22. This event will feature a welcome message from Representative Cloud as well as our featured speakers, Sean Strawbridge, CEO, Port Corpus Christi, and Mike Howard, CEO, Howard Energy Partners. 


Please enjoy this next issue of SHALE and join us at the State of Energy luncheon. There is so much information to be shared currently as we move forward into 2020 and beyond. We hope to continue to be your source for energy news and expert opinion with all our efforts.
