About the Eagleford Shale
The Eagleford Shale in southwest Texas is a premier liquids-rich development in the United States. With its higher-margin oil, the Eagleford Shale is also among the most capital-efficient shale plays in Anadarko’s U.S. onshore portfolio.
Energy resources in the Eagleford Shale are abundant and creating jobs with significant benefits to local and state economies. By 2021, Eagleford Shale activity is expected to generate more than $90 billion in total economic output and support more than 116,000 full-time jobs in the South Texas region, according to the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) Institute for Economic Development.
