Although typically considered with a focus on high-resolution petrography, shale porosity should not be thought of as a stand-alone petrographic feature. Shale and mudstone porosity is the outcome of a long succession of processes and events that span the continuum from deposition through burial, compaction, and late diagenesis. For the Eagle Ford Shale this journey began with accumulation in intra-shelf basins at relatively low latitudes on a southeast-facing margin during early parts of the late Cretaceous. To understand the factors that generated and preserved porosity in this economically important interval, a scanning electron microscope study on ion-milled drill-core samples...
