There is more natural gas produced in Fort Worth than any other city in Tarrant County, Texas. Chesapeake, the city’s leading urban operator, operates approximately 500 wells on 40 sites inside city limits.
The numbers behind natural gas production in Fort Worth give way to a powerful story. From 2008 – 11 the City of Fort Worth self-reported $183.9 million in revenue from the natural gas industry, including lease bonuses, royalties, mineral ad valorem, pipeline easements, license agreements, permitting fees and water sales. The city’s total natural gas and oil industry revenue for 2011 alone was $52.7 million, of which the Fort Worth Independent School District received $9.8 million from mineral ad valorem revenue.
The revenue isn’t just realized by municipalities. Local mineral owners include residents, businesses, nonprofit organizations and churches who receive bonus and royalty payments from Barnett Shale wells. In fact, Chesapeake has distributed more than $1.5 billion in royalties to North Texas mineral owners in the last few years. The company also provides significant charitable support to organizations such as the United Way of Tarrant County while making a commitment to volunteer in the communities in which we operate.
In the Barnett everyone benefits from the production of a clean, affordable, abundant, American resource that can help our country achieve energy independence.
