Visit the Artesia Economic Development website.
Artesia is located in Southeast New Mexico at the crossroads of U.S. 285 and U.S. 82, making the community the hub of the region. Artesia is in the northwestern area of the Permian Basin, and enjoys the benefits of a strong oil and gas economy. Other significant economic drivers include the oil refinery, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, railroad, and agriculture, including dairies, farming, and ranching. Artesia has a strong medical complex relative to the community’s size and prides itself on a well-supported school system. We are a small but thriving community and look forward to every opportunity for growth.
