First settled in the early 1900s, Jal sits in the middle of the Delaware Basin and is a hotspot for oilfield activity. Jal’s main industry is oil and gas but also features Lea County’s only transload facility run by CIG Logistics. In addition to business, the JAL lake is a great place to relax and a unique landscaping feature.
