BORON CAPITAL OPENING HIGH-END WORKFORCE HOUSING IN REGION RAMPING UP OIL PRODUCTION
MIDLAND, Texas — The moderate price of oil has not stopped Boron Capital from building the highest-end workforce housing available in Midland for oil company employees.
The community, called The Corporate Ranch, offers about twice the amount of space in common areas than traditional workforce housing. The units include 30-year composition roofs, eight-and-a-half foot ceilings, textured sheetrock walls, hardwood cabinets, china sinks, fiberglass showers and other, similar amenities.
The Permian Basin, a geological formation in that area of west Texas, is currently considered the lowest-cost oil production area in the United States due to the depth of the shale combined with cost-cutting methods used to lower production expenses.
“With the momentum the Permian Basin has to be at the top of the oil industry in the United States, we are making a good investment by furthering that momentum with our budget-friendly housing,” said Blake Templeton, owner of the Corporate Ranch.
Boron Capital is a private real estate investment firm based in Mesquite, Nev., that analyzes conditions affecting the economy and investments.
