The boom in the Basin is no secret but how well are counties around here doing state-wide?

As far as crude oil production is concerned, the Permian Basin dominated the state.

Andrews County is number one in crude oil production, Gaines County was number two then Ector and Midland County came in at four and five respectively.

Martin and Scurry County are the last Permian Basin counties in the top ten.

The entire top ten was made up of West Texas counties but the basin definitely made its mark.
