Oilfield Services

Texas Shale PlaysCorsicana is the birthplace of the Texas oil industry and is located between the Barnett Shale to the northwest, the Eagle Ford Shale to the south and the Haynesville/Bossier Shale to the east.

Because of its central location to these three major oil shale plays, Corsicana and Navarro County make an ideal site to locate oilfield service operations.

    • Interstate 20 access is 45 miles north of Corsicana on I-45
    • US-287 connects Corsicana with Fort Worth to the northeast and Beaumont to the southeast
    • TX-31 and TX-22 are both east-west state highways that pass through Corsicana. NOTE: Construction of the TX-31 bypass, which will pass to the south of Corsicana, will begin in early 2015 and be completed in late 2017. When completed, TX-31 will go around the City of Corsicana
