AUSTIN, TX (KOSA) – For the first time since February, the upstream sector of the state’s oil and natural gas industry added 700 jobs last month, according to the Texas Workforce Commission.

That brings the total upstream employment in Texas to 170,500 jobs.

Todd Staples, the president of the Texas Oil & Gas Association, says while the uptick is small, it is an indicator that there are better days ahead for the industry.
