The Eagle Ford shale is a well developed resource play located in south Texas. Wells produce dry gas, rich gas, volatile oil, black oil or a combination. The Eagle Ford was first targeted as a stand-alone commercial play in 2008, initially as a gas play. Operators began prioritizing liquids in 2010 following EOG's shift to liquids development. The Eagle Ford quickly became the most active tight oil play prior to the oil price downturn in 2014. The Eagle Ford is still an important asset for many companies. The vast majority of activity is in the core condensate areas, especially Karnes Trough and Edwards Condensate.
