Eagle Ford Shale Playbook 2011

The Eagle Ford shale trends across a great swath of Texas, stretching from Giddings Field in Brazos and Grimes counties down into the Maverick Basin in Maverick County. The Cretaceous Eagle Ford has long been known as a tremendous source rock, and now it's coming into its own as a prolific shale reservoir. Across its trend, the Eagle Ford's hydrocarbon content shifts from dry gas to oil. These variations, as well as changes in depth and local geology, make portions of the Eagle Ford trend particularly attractive to explorers.
