The Permian Basin, home to Odessa and a number of nearby
cities, is nearly 250 miles and 300 miles wide. The basin
was formed during the Permian Period, the final portion of
the Paleozoic Period ( 280 million years ago). At one time,
the basin was an ocean filled with marine life and plants.
As the ocean dried up, the decaying plants and animals eventually
helped form the gigantic pools of oil and gas that are still
being taken from the basin. Odessa's economy has largely been
oil based. When most Texans think of Odessa, two things come
to mind: oil wells and the Mojo Magic of the Odessa Permian
Panthers high school football team.
