Eagle Ford Minute for December 19

fallingOil prices have plummeted 40% in the last six months, and that’s putting the kibosh on some new drilling across North American shale plays.

According to DrillingInfo.com, applications for new drilling permits in South Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale and North Dakota’s and Montana’s Bakken Shale fell approximately 30% in November of 2014 compared to the previous month. However, the Texas Railroad Commission reports a whopping 4,891 new drilling and re-enter permits in the Eagle Ford from Jan. – Oct. of this year, already surpassing the total for new drilling and re-enter permits in 2013 of 4,416.

The rig count in the Eagle Ford Shale has not dropped off yet, staying between roughly 260 – 270 rigs running across EagleFordShale.com’s 30-county coverage area per week since June of 2014. Read more

Hydraulic fracturing in the Eagle Ford Shale is adding water stress to a region where aquifers already are being overdrawn, according to a new report from the Mosbacher Institute at Texas A&M University.

The Eagle Ford is likely to produce 1.685 million barrels daily of crude oil and the light oil known as condensate, according to the latest EIA report. It would be a gain of around 30,000 daily barrels over December production for the field. Read More
