 ….Its southern edge begins near Laredo

and trends northeast toward Austin, producing
large quantities of natural gas. The northern
edge—the formation is about 50 miles
wide—follows a similar trend but produces
oil. A central zone is rich in condensates,
also called natural gas liquids, valuable to the
refining and petrochemical industry on the
Texas Gulf Coast.

More Proof – Eagle Ford is the Largest Oilfiled

Simply put – everything is bigger in Texas.

Yes sir.  Eagle Ford wells are producing twice the volume of wells in the Bakken area of North Dakota. These new findings by a Colorado company (IHS) are detailed in the IHS Herold Eagle Ford Regional Play Assessment and is no news to us Texans.
