After a period of relative M&A quiet in the Eagle Ford Shale, ConocoPhillips Co. is offering for sale a mix of operated, nonoperated and overriding royalty interests in DeWitt and Lavaca counties, Texas, including locations in the Basal Austin Chalk. 

So far in 2022, the sole announced E&P deal in the Eagle Ford was January’s acquisition by Lime Rock Resources LP. The company said it had purchased Eagle Ford and Austin Chalk assets from a private seller for $271.3 million.

ConocoPhillips is also engaged in marketing nearly 280,000 net acres comprising leasehold in the western Anadarko Basin and nonoperated assets in the STACK and SCOOP plays as the company looks to high-grade its portfolio.
