A Resourceful Location
Location really is everything, and in Odessa, our centralized location makes us a hub of opportunity for business. Serving as the County Seat of Ector County with a population of almost 120,000, Odessa is located in the heart of the Permian Basin. It also serves as the crucial midpoint between Fort Worth and El Paso. Odessa is also located in the central part of the United States in the Central Time Zone. Multi-lane interstate access and an advanced transportation system make shipping goods in and out of Odessa a breeze. Just take a look at the maps of Odessa and how well we are connected to the rest of the state, the U.S. and the world.
Covering an area of 100,000 square miles in West Texas, the Permian Basin is the largest single source of oil and gas deposits in the US. That makes Odessa the epicenter of West Texas commerce.
