The Austin Chalk has been producing a large amount of natural oil and gas since the past fifty years from the deposits located at and near the city itself. Starting from vertical drilling to get the oil pockets just under the surface, it was a huge success in terms of the amount of oil and gas obtained. After the success of vertical drills, they started Horizontal Drilling to tap into the resources that were beyond the reach of the vertical drills. Using the new technique of Horizontal Drilling the production of the Austin Chalk increased by a large margin and the efficiency and effectiveness of the drilling also contributed to the largest amounts of oil and gas extracted.
