First Titan Corp. seeks a high-level landman as the company takes the next step in its growth by adding lucrative assets in the oil-rich West Texas area to its portfolio. Spurred by the Cline Shale, oil and gas production in West Texas is projected to add $20 billion to the region's economy by 2022.
FTTN is specifically seeking a landman to investigate mineral rights in the Sweetwater-Abilene corridor. Texas produced over 733 million barrels of oil in 2013, and is projected to produce 3.4 million barrels of oil per day the rest of the year, according to a recent report by the Dallas Business Journal. A study by the University of Texas-San Antonio's Institute for Economic Development considers a $20 billion boost to the economy by the Cline Shale to be a conservative projection.
