The Heart of Leadership: Service, Community, and Progress with Lori Blong, Mayor of Midland.

Lori Blong is a proud native of the Permian Basin and Co-Founder/Partner of Octane Energy, as well as the current mayor of Midland, Texas.  She is committed to lead, learn, and serve in the oil and gas industry at a regional, state, and federal level, in addition to her service to the community of Midland.

After spending her early career as a high school teacher in El Paso, TX, Lori co-founded an oilfield service company, Octane Energy, with her husband, Jared, in 2013. They steadily built their company over the years through the ups and downs of commodity and activity cycles, gleaning knowledge and experience in operations and development from all around the Permian Basin. In fact, in 2017 and 2018, Octane was recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the Top 5 Fastest Growing private energy companies in Texas.
