MIDLAND - Midland based, Basic Energy Services, is no more.

The company is relocating their headquarters in Midland to Fort Worth and you can blame the boom.

They're having a tough time filling corporate positions with our good economy.

A Basic Energy official said Fort Worth provides a broader pool of potential employees in areas such as HR, accounting and IT.

Basic has spent the last 20 years in the Basin.

A transition plan has been laid out and the move should be complete by the end of the year.
