Northwestern New Mexico is prepping for a new oil and gas boom in a region that’s pumped out natural gas for decades and where those resources were once thought fully developed.
The boom could be similar to what’s happening in southeastern New Mexico’s Permian Basin, and the Bakken Shale in North Dakota and Montana, according to oil and gas experts.
