Opportunity Abounds in Odessa, Texas

Not every community can say its skies produce the most beautiful sunsets in Texas. And not just anyone can lay claim to proudly helping the United States achieve energy independence. But Odessa can.

There is no other place in the nation quite like Odessa, Texas. We’re proud of our reputation as a community filled with independent thinkers, creative problem solvers and people who are unafraid of hard work. Perhaps that’s why 1PointFive, a subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum (Oxy), chose Odessa for its new $1 billion carbon capture project, just one shining example of the emerging technologies being developed and deployed here.  

It’s this spirit of tenacity that has helped us become one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas. As the heart of the Permian Basin’s oil and gas region, Odessa is home to the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and Odessa College, nationally recognized for its workforce training programs. Our available sites with easy access to air, rail and the interstate make us a prime choice for growing companies. When combined with our vibrant arts and entertainment scene, beautiful parks and two first-class hospitals, it becomes clear that there’s just one place that has it all – Only Odessa.
