Odessa, Texas. Every even-numbered year the Permian Basin International Oil Show, Inc. (PBIOS) brings together people from every phase of the petroleum industry. Attendees come to learn about the latest technology, the newest equipment, to transact business and renew friendships. Unlike most exhibitions, the Permian Basin International Oil Show, Inc. is a non-profit venture whose sole purpose is educational, designed to serve the oil and gas industry. PBIOS not only showcases the very latest technology, it also honors the industry's past. A working cable tool rig operates daily on the show grounds during the three-day show, surrounded by trucks and oilfield equipment from the 1930s, a key growth period for the industry in the Permian Basin.
