The Oil & Gas Year Eagle Ford, Texas Shale 2014
The Eagle Ford is estimated to have total reserves of 7 billion-10 billion barrels of oil. With one of the largest concentrations of rigs in the country, the Eagle Ford has seen a large portion of the investments made in the US oil and gas industry. Yet high costs have prompted many firms, such as super-major Shell, to pull out of the shale play completely.
By 2020, the US could become the world’s biggest oil producer thanks to its shale boom. The Oil & Gas Year Eagle Ford, Texas 2014 dedicates The Year’s Focus chapter to new emerging resource plays such as the Bakken, Marcellus, Utica, Niobrara and Permian shales.
Detailed maps and in depth analysis accompany interviews with the big names in the business including Texas’ Governor Rick Perry, the chairman of the Railroad Commission of Texas and BHP Billiton’s president of petroleum and potash. The second Eagle Ford TOGY title is an unparalleled resource for investors and industry players who need to know what is happening in US unconventionals.
