We are progressing in the “Invisible City,” as the Woodlands is known, due to the amount of trees that populate its streets and its lake. At Repsol, we are wholly committed to this natural environment and, for this reason, we work in harmony with the environment in order to preserve it and grow together side by side.
This space quickly became a thriving business, trade and tourism center thanks to its short distance from Houston. Taking into account these advantageous conditions, we decided to invest in this natural paradise and open several offices. Due to the rapid growth in the United States, in 2014 our dream of working in our very own emblematic headquarters was fulfilled.
Our headquarters in Houston is surrounded by a lake and forests. At first glance, it may seem like a yacht at sea, with its eight glass stories and its terrace overlooking the lake, fruit of the creativity of architect Ziegler Cooper. This headquarters, with its open and transparent spaces, is an invitation for teamwork. Every inch of the space, from the furnishings to the videoconference rooms, breathes the Repsol brand.
The Woodlands belongs to the state of Texas, a region that has been the leading oil state since 1928, producing 37% of the country’s total crude oil. Texas also carries out 29% of the country’s total refining capacity, and it also leads in the production of natural gas, with 26% of total production. On the other hand, focusing specifically on the city of Houston, we find more than 5,000 companies in the energy sector, 500 of which are specialized in exploration and production.
