Increased Drilling Activities and Encouraging Well Results Allow Eagle Ford to Emerge as a Major Potential Oil and Gas Producing Region in the US

The encouraging results from the wells drilled in Eagle Ford shale have significantly increased the drilling activities in the shale play. As per Texas Rail Road Commission (RRC), as on April 16, 2010, there were 231 permitted wells and 123 drilled wells in the play. The activity in the play is expected to continue to increase over the next few years. Major companies in the play together plan to drill approximately 230 wells in Eagle Ford shale in 2010.

The Shale play is expected to emerge as a major oil and gas producing field in the US over the next decade. EOG Resources, one of largest players in the Eagle Ford shale play has estimated that the Eagle Ford, as an oil discovery, will rank sixth in size among the all time giant oil fields in the US - just after the Bakken Shale. The overall production of Eagle Ford shale is expected to reach approximately 2,827.4 million cubic feet equivalent (Mmcfe) per day by 2020.

Oil and Condensate Production from the Eagle Ford Shale Makes It A Lucrative Investment Destination

The Eagle Ford Shale, in contrast to other major shale plays in the US like Barnett, Haynesville and Marcellus, which primarily produce natural gas and condensate, produces oil in addition to natural gas and condensate. The oil and condensate percentage in some regions have been quite high giving the companies a huge premium.

The Eagle Ford shale is expected to attract huge investments over the next decade with rapid increase in activities in the play. The major eight companies in the play plan to spend over $1billion in 2010.
