The Eagle Ford shale formation, measuring about 50 miles wide and 400 miles long, spans across Texas - from the Mexican border to East Texas. The shale play has gained significant importance due to the possibility of its containing one of the largest shale reserves of oil and gas in the US. The average thickness of the play is about 250 feet (ft) at depths of 4,000 to 12,000 ft. The shale play lies between the Austin Chalk and the Buda Lime formations.

Eagle Ford Shale witnessed its first activity in 2008 when Petrohawk Energy Corporation drilled its first well in the play and discovered the Hawkville Field. The initial discovery resulted in a well that flowed at a rate of 7.6 MMcf per day of gas. Since then, the play has been witnessing increasing enthusiasm and participation from investors.

Eagle Ford Shale Play Witnessing Increasing Investments

Since its first drilling activity in 2008, Eagle Ford shale has witnessed rapid developments. Since 2010, mergers, acquisitions and asset transaction deals worth about $15 billion were signed in the Eagle Ford shale plays. This trend is expected to continue in the near-term as some major oil and gas companies plan to invest around $4.6 billion in the play in 2011.

Few key deals undertaken in the Eagle Ford shale include a joint venture of Statoil and Talisman Energy; Anadarko’s $1.5 billion joint venture with KNOC and Reliance Energy’s purchase of acreage from Pioneer Natural Resources for $1.3 billion. Such deals indicate high levels of interest of oil and gas companies to invest in this shale play.
With sustained, high, global crude prices, investments in unconventional oil resources are on the rise. Eagle Ford shale, with high unconventional oil reserve, has emerged as one of the prominent investment areas for companies looking for investment in liquid shale plays.
