Baton Rouge has one of the worlds largest Exxon plants in the world. All of south Louisiana is big on oil and gas with the exception of Lafayette.

My husband is an oil and gas consultant who has worked all over the US and the world. These are some cities and areas with a lot of continuing work.
Denver/Colorado has been brought up a couple of times. Is there a reason why? Denver seems like an interesting place/good fit for me, but I never knew it was big on energy

Colorado has a lot of oil and gas resources and Denver apparently is in a good location. That's really all I know about it. My husband has been working in the Marcellas and Pearsall and Haynesville Shales and a little in the Brown Dense - he hasn't worked in CO in years but it's still apparently going strong.

Oklahoma City is huge in O&G. They have Chesapeake, Devon, Enogex, Continental, as well as some others I am probably missing. They have high paying jobs as well.

Headquarters for operations in many states. Has good synergy with mining industry which is big too. Lots of future O&G workers graduate from Colorado School of Mines in Golden.

New Orleans has a huge O&G presence, particularly for off-shore operations and petrochemical plants.

No other city is more oil and gas centered than Midland, and Odessa, TX. Houston is the center and brain trust of the O&G industry with a few regional capitals such as Tulsa, OKC, Denver, Longview, TX Tyler, TX Shreveport Bossier City, LA Lake Charles, LA Lafayette, LA Baton Rouge, LA. Calgary is the smaller Houston of Canada with Edmonton not far behind.
