Pioneer’s dedication to community well being and success shows in the many ways we seek to be a good neighbor in all of our operating areas. From our office in Midland and field offices in Midkiff and Highway 80, we lead operations in the Permian Basin’s Spraberry field and have forged a lasting relationship with local communities.
We aim to provide educational information on our operations and community involvement and frequently partner with county officials, insitutions and non-profit organizations to do so. From donations for the construction of the Bush Tennis Center to financial support and classroom volunteering in Midland ISD, our outreach efforts focus on youth and education.

We have a strong foundation in the oil- and gas-rich Spraberry field and are in the early stages of a new horizontal drilling program in the Wolfcamp Shale interval. Extensive geological data and successful drilling results to date indicate we may have significant resource potential within the horizontal play.
