Currently, many companies are heading south to Texas where oil and gas has been discovered on a large region across Texas. South Texas is home to the Eagle Ford Shale Play, a formation of sedimentary rock underlying a large area in South Texas and East Texas and directly under the Austin Chalk Shale. This formation is deemed an original source of hydrocarbons and produces shifting amounts of condensate, oil, dry and wet gas, and Natural Gas Liquids. The depths of the Eagle Ford Shale are anywhere between 4,000 feet and 14,000 feet. Since 2002, the Eagle Ford Shale has been targeted by companies for oil and gas drilling. In 2010, this target area for oil and gas drilling was one of the most actively drilled. The shale is most copious in the Edwards Reef Trend, which extends for 250 miles across South Texas. This shale play has not shown fracturing, which is a sign of promise. The Shale is known to have an abundance of gas and oil activity and this will not die down anytime soon.
Since companies have taken their business to South Texas to tap into the Eagle Ford Shale, many have seen amazing growth in revenue and jobs. This has also greatly benefited local governments in the Eagle Ford belt. With nearly 200 active rigs in the region, production coming out of these oil rigs. While 2010 showed plentiful activity, 2011 is expected to increase much, much more. Make sure your company is not left behind.
