Mexico shale gas unconventional play
Mexico is keen to pursue shale gas development as a means of bolstering declining conventional production and to meet domestic demand. The Eagle Ford Shale play is believed to extend past the Texas border and into Mexico. Eleven wells have been drilled and results thus far have included three dry gas wells and five rich gas wells. However, the projected availability of inexpensive imported gas from the United States directly challenges the economics of Mexican gas production.
