Local News

MIDLAND, TX (Big 2/ Fox 24) – The Permian Basin is known for its oil and gas industry, and Weatherford also wants the Basin to be known for its diversity and inclusion in the industry.

The Women in the Permian Forum had discussions about promoting these ideas to dozens of fellow employees at the Greentree Country Club.

“Diversity is very clearly defined as you know male, female, minority,” says engineering manager, Katie Muras of Delaware Basin Production XTO. “But I think what we’re trying to get too is beyond that, making sure that people feel comfortable; feel heard.”

Diversity and inclusion, that’s the message the Women in the Permain of Weatherford want to send across west texas.

“We’re discussing the local level,” says Lind Addison, sales director of Weatherford. “The reason why the local level became a thought for me was because safety is the number one thing on the front line of operations.”

The Permian Basin is known for its oil & gas production, but it’s also more to it.

“When we look at all of the developments that are ahead of us and all of the goals that we wish to accomplish out in the Permian, it’s going to take everyone,” says Muras.
