Houston is known as the Energy Capital of the World, and Downtown is central to many facets of the oil and gas industry. Houston is the world’s preeminent energy center embodying all aspects of energy exploration and production (E&P) including transportation, trading, refining, petrochemicals, marketing, distribution and transmission.

With continued strength of the sector and close ties to the Port of Houston, the tenth largest port in the world, Downtown is primed as the leader in energy.

Global headquarters remain committed to Downtown and contribute to the dense cluster of talented workers and face-to-face encounters that support a dynamic work environment. Energy businesses support a range of complementary services and catalyze spinoff activity in other industries. Legal, accounting, technical, consulting, and commercial and investment banking services all support Downtown’s energy business and foster collaboration for continued growth in professional networks across the broader Downtown business community.
