Eagle Ford: Garcia of La Vernia leads STEER
SAN ANTONIO -- The South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER), serving the Eagle Ford shale region in South Texas, has opened offices in San Antonio, as the most comprehensive Eagle Ford shale resource in the region.
The organization, headed by experienced industry leader, Omar Garcia of La Vernia, serves as the facilitator and coordinator for communication, education, and public advocacy surrounding the production of energy resources in South Texas. As the premier oil and natural gas resource for the Eagle Ford shale region, STEER aims to ensure that activities and advancements in the industry are responsibly addressed by positively guiding the energy sector and economic development progress in communities throughout South Texas.
“It is an unprecedented time for this region,” Garcia said. “At STEER, we know that positive growth and development depend on collaboration, active dialogue, and continued education among the various stakeholders both involved in, and impacted by, the oil and gas industry. STEER will serve as the conduit between the industry, government, academia, and local communities to ensure that communication and progress takes place in a productive manner.”
STEER was founded by 11 of the largest oil and gas operators in the Eagle Ford shale region in South Texas who recognized the need to maintain a cohesive and collaborative effort surrounding the exploration of the shale. The operators developed STEER to be the guiding liaison between the South Texas communities and the industry.
“STEER is going to be a tremendously helpful resource and advocate for South Texas as it relates to the Eagle Ford shale,” said Karnes County Judge Barbara Najvar Shaw. “... We look forward to their continued work in bridging communities with the oil and natural gas industry so that we can prosper together.”
STEER will be based in San Antonio at the Pearl complex.
