Shale jobs attract interest from far away
from Fuel Fix
The Eagle Ford Shale is a job-creation machine, and the word has reached job hopefuls far from the South Texas oil play. At a recent job fair in San Antonio, hosted mostly by energy companies, Rich Puliselich, a truck driver from Southern California, was hoping to land an entry-level job with a drilling company. Puliselich has been in San Antonio for a week with his wife and 5-year-old son. "We like it here," he said. "I'm going to relocate and make a big move." Welding crews are busy laying pipelines in to get oil and gas extracted from the Eagle Ford shale formation, underlying much of South and East Texas, to market.
