Devon Energy celebrated the opening of its new facility in DeWitt County last week with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony.
The 52,000 sq.ft. state of the art facility is located south of Cuero on Hwy. 87S.
Devon entered the Eagle Ford Shale in March 2014 when it purchased the assets of Geosouthern in this county.
Company president and CEO Dave Hagee spoke at the ceremony. “We have received a lot of support from the community and first responders. We recognize we are newcomers in the community, and we recognize it is a partnership. We are excited to be here. We look forward to a long and lasting relationship,” he said.
Cuero Mayor Sara Post Meyer welcomed the company stating, “Devon Energy produces natural gas and oil all the way from Calgary, Canada down to deep South Texas, DeWitt and Lavaca counties as well as in Midland and northwest New Mexico. The company employees 5,500 people throughout their operations.”
