The Fall of 2021 was a busy season for the team members of Walsh Engineering and Production. We participated across the San Juan Basin and New Mexico in numerous conferences, seminars, and volunteer activities. Read on for the highlights from the event celebrating 100 Years of Oil and Gas Production in the San Juan Basin and the ‘Ringing in Santa Claus’ Annual Christmas Parade.

On October 21, 2021, numerous members of the Walsh Engineering and Production team attended the Desk and Derrick Club of Farmington event celebrating 100 Years of Oil and Gas Production in the San Juan Basin.

During the event, a video detailing the history of oil and gas in the San Juan Basin was presented. This 12 minute video, courtesy of the Desk and Derrick Club of Farmington, highlighted the beginnings of the oil and gas industry in 1921, explained the booms and busts in subsequent decades, and explains the current outlook for the area. It also details the contributions of members of the oil and gas industry to the growth and prosperity of the Four Corners Area. Click here to view the video that was presented at the event. There is an exhibit at the Farmington Museum, Built By Gas, that delves into 100 Years of Commercial Gas in the San Juan Basin. We encourage you to visit it!
