History Energy Corridor

The Energy Corridor owes its name and its very existence to the energy companies within the district.

In the 1970s, Shell Oil Company and Conoco chose to build campus facilities and move their operations along Interstate 10. This was to accommodate both growing operations and additional employees. The move and development paved the way for other oil and gas companies to follow suit.

In 2001, the Texas State Legislature created the Energy Corridor District, otherwise known as the Harris County Improvement District #4, at the request of property owners.

It is a municipal management district that aims to promote public safety, to improve transportation and commuting solutions, and to further develop its standing as a key business district.

Thanks to its master planning and overall development, the Energy Corridor is one of the best places to work, visit, live, and invest in in West Houston.
