It takes more than a drop in oil prices to stop producers in the world's most active shale play. South Texas' Eagle Ford is a big play with major players. And as they say, "it's all about location." The Eagle Ford has a winning combination of geographic and geological advantages. It's blessed with diverse resources (crude oil, dry gas, and NGLs), ample takeaway capacity (via pipe, rail and barge) and close proximity to downstream markets on the Gulf Coast. In November 2014, the Eagle Ford produced its billionth barrel of crude and condensate — more than 70% of which was produced in the last two years.
This elite play is not immune to the current business cycle though. According to Baker Hughes, Eagle Ford rig count is down over 50% year over year. Yet with the latest efficiency-driven technologies and processes, engineers have found a way to drive breakeven costs below $30 in the best locations.
The world looks to the Eagle Ford to lead the way out of the current business cycle. And this October, 4,000+ industry professionals, 25+ executive-level speakers and 400+ exhibitors are coming together in San Antonio to explore the path forward. Make sure you are there to meet them!

Scotland Widens Shale Moratorium To Include Coal Gasification Scotland has placed a moratorium on underground coal gasification, a form of unconventional gas extraction, adding to a ban on shale gas that it imposed in January in conflict with the pro-shale stance of Prime Minister David Cameron.
The Scottish government also said on Oct. 8 it would start an in-depth investigation into the impact of shale gas fracking, the process whereby water, sand and chemicals are blasted at underground rocks to release trapped gas.
The outcome of the consultation in spring 2017 will then allow Scottish ministers to decide whether to keep the shale gas moratorium in place or not.
