UTSA releases Eagle Ford Shale housing study results Feb. 29
(Feb. 29, 2012) -- UTSA researchers will release the results of a long-anticipated housing study on Wednesday, Feb. 29 at the Eagle Ford Shale Consortium Conference, scheduled Feb. 29 to March 2 at the Omni Hotel Colonnade in San Antonio. UTSA College of Architecture lecturer Azza Kamal will present the research, which paints a picture of the housing demands that the western shale region is expected to experience by 2025.
The housing study is the third in a series of Eagle Ford Shale region studies offered by UTSA. In February 2011, the UTSA Institute of Economic Development (IED) released its Eagle Ford Shale Economic Impact Report, which provided projections for job growth and income in the Eagle Ford shale area.
Last May, the IED completed a workforce analysis focusing on six western shale counties: La Salle, Zavala, Dimmit, Maverick, Frio and Webb. With funding from the IED Rural Business Program, the UTSA College of Architecture Center for Urban and Regional Planning Research has examined those six counties to identify housing challenges and opportunities.
The presentation of the study kicks off the first day of the Eagle Ford Shale Consortium Inaugural Conference, a working conference titled "Creating a Sustainable Pathway." The conference, a cooperative effort between local leaders, community stakeholders, and the oil and gas industry in the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale region, aims to produce industry insight, community feedback and expert assessment regarding Eagle Ford Shale challenges and opportunities.
Experts from across the United States will discuss job creation, workforce education and training, housing, national resources, economic and community development, infrastructure, and environmental health and safety. UTSA panelists and presenters will include John Murphy, dean of the UTSA College of Architecture; Les Shephard, director of the Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute; Thomas Tunstall, director of the IED Center for Business and Community Research, and Kamal. Energy company representatives will be at the conference to discuss the technical aspects of oil and gas drilling and production in the region.
