RLI Three Rivers Lodge opens to accommodate Eagle Ford boom
A quaint town in South Texas recently celebrated the grand opening of the RLI Three Rivers Lodge, a lodging camp designed to help facilitate the massive influx of oilfield workers to the area.
Since the recent oil and gas boom of the Eagle Ford shale, many South Texas towns such as Three Rivers have experienced an overflow of oilfield workers that has overwhelmed local hotel and housing options.
RLI’s Lodge provides a solution for Three Rivers and oil service companies by offering housing for over 200 workers, all with the comforts and amenities of home. RLI’s Lodge offers guests three, professionally prepared meals a day, door-to-door personal laundry, a full business center and conference room, a recreation room with ping pong and pool tables, a full-sized shuffleboard, and a movie room. Guests also enjoy satellite TV, high-speed wireless, and a mini-fridge in their room. They even get mints on their pillows upon arrival.
At the grand opening ceremony, RLI was honored by the attendance of both the Three Rivers Mayor, and the Live Oak County Judge. RLI strives to be good corporate citizens, through local outreach, and by giving back to the community.
The mayor explained how the lodge would help out the local community by freeing up space in the town’s hotels, so they could accept more guests. The expansion of RLI into South Texas lodges comes from a broad background in offshore
catering. With offshore operations spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arabian Gulf, RLI draws from an expansive spectrum of experience in the hospitality industry.
