LAREDO - The City of Laredo has entered into an economic development grant agreement, which includes about $90,000 in tax incentives, with Select Energy Services who in turn pledged to the city a $6 million capital investment as they expand to a new site on Mines Rd.

The agreement will bring more than 100 middle-class jobs to the city. Select’s contract with the city stipulates it must retain within the city at least 149 jobs until 2018.

Most of the new positions will not require a college degree or vocational training and boast an average salary of $40,000 plus benefits, according to Barry Gilpin, Select Southwest Texas regional operations manager.

The Select expansion will provide oilfield services to sites in Webb, Zapata, La Salle, Dimmit, Maverick and Frio.
