About the ArkLaTex Oil-Producing Region

The ArkLaTex is a U.S. socio-economic region where Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas intersect. The region is centered on the Shreveport/Bossier metropolitan area in Northwest Louisiana. The region's history is heavily linked with the oil industry. The geology associated with the deposition of sediments from the Mississippi River, in particular, makes this area an abundant source for the oil and gas industries, which leads to the high levels of oil production within the region.
