A series of subsurface reservoir and geological properties are reviewed, specific to the Eagle Ford Shale of south Texas and compared with production trends. Currently, an area in excess of 7 million acres has been tested for Eagle Ford production potential by hydraulically fracture-stimulated, horizontal wellbores. The bulk of this area is suitably thick (>125 ft [38.1 m]), organic-rich (>2 wt. % total organic carbon), and attains a thermal maturity consistent with hydrocarbon generation for Type II kerogen (>435°C Tmax). Production trends, highlighted by well performance analysis from over 1450 wells, point to a clear differentiation of...
