Eagle Ford Shale Is Getting 'Thicker' - Upper Eagle Ford Emerging As A Viable Second Development Zone
- Results of the Upper Eagle Ford pilots discussed last week by Rosetta Resources look highly encouraging.
- In certain areas where the formation is sufficiently thick, the Upper Eagle Ford may prove just as prolific as the Lower Eagle Ford.
- While much longer production history will be required, interference between wells in some pilots is yet to be detected.
- Success of early pilots may trigger a broader delineation effort by the industry. Upper Eagle Ford resource potential may prove vast.
