Devon to Open New Mexico Permian Office

January 7, 2019

 

Oklahoma-based Devon Energy is opening a Permian Basin area office in Roswell, New Mexico.

They’ve had offices in the Carlsbad and Artesia areas for years, but the company told the Roswell Daily Record that it’s excited to soon be part of the Roswell community.

Does this mean Devon is considering more acquisitions in New Mexico?

Details are few, including whether there’ll be hiring at the new office and when it might open.

Office space is under consideration, a spokeswoman said, with Devon saying it wants to cut down commute time for the people it already employs in the Roswell area.

The company owns oil and gas wells in the Delaware Basin of New Mexico, as well as assets in Texas, Wyoming, Canada and Oklahoma.
