Eagle Ford in Texas is the most mature tight oil play in the Lower 48 current, oil and natural gas production of 2.5 million barrels of oil equivalent per day. Measuring 400 miles long and 50 miles wide along the Texas Gulf Coast, the Eagle Ford basin is spread over 12,000 square miles in South and central Texas.
Gonzales County (1,070 sq miles) lies in south Texas above a shale play known as the Eagle Ford shale. The county is targeted for the liquids-rich nature of the Eagle Ford formation in this area. The county is part of the northern region of the Eagle Ford play where the oil trend narrows. Recent drilling in nearby Fayette County is extending the play past Gonzales. Activity in the county is focused in the shale oil window in the southwest third of the county.
Lavaca County (970 sq miles) in South Texas serves as the northern extent of a prolific portion of the Eagle Ford shale that moves into DeWitt and Gonzales counties. Lavaca County is targeted for the liquids-rich nature of the Eagle Ford formation in this area. The county is part of the northern region of the play and is prospective for shale oil, shale gas, and condensate, which are being developed by horizontal drilling. Thermal maturity in this area might provide production from all three phases of the dry gas, gas-condensate, and oil windows.
