The Field Office is located within the extent of the Permian Basin, a prolific oil basin in the United States, and one of the oldest oil fields in the nation, having been in operation since the 1920s. There are many recreational opportunities in the rolling limestone foothills of the Guadalupe Mountains and the rugged Chihuahuan Desert environment.
