Anadarko Activity in the Eagleford

The Eagleford Shale, located in the Maverick Basin of 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.

The Impact of Eagleford

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 region, according to the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Institute for Economic Development.

Anadarko is one of the Eagleford’s largest producers, with roughly 388,000 gross acres in Dimmit, LaSalle, Maverick and Webb Counties. At year-end 2015, Anadarko's net sales volumes averaged 89,000 BOE per day in Eagleford, as it reduced drilling activity and significantly improved its efficiencies.
