The Eagle Ford Shale is a 400 mile long and 50 mile wide gas and oil producing site that stretches across south Texas from the Mexican border all the way up to east Texas. The shale, which has an average thickness of 250 feet, is significant because it produces both oil and gas - the gas coming in both wet and dry forms.
The Houston Chronicle has reported that the Eagle Ford Shale has become the heart of economic activity in Texas, attracting foreign companies that have become some of the largest employers in the state. According to the Railroad Commission of Texas, there were 368 producing oil leases and 550 producing gas wells in 2011. From January to October 2011, more than 13 million barrels of oil were produced from the Eagle Ford Shale.
