The Eagle Ford has been drilled at depths that range from a few thousand to 14,000+ ft in South Texas.
How Deep is the Eagle Ford Formation Found?
The fairway of the play is found at approximate depths of 8,000-12,000 ft below the surface.
Oil gets heavier and harder to produce in the more shallow portions of the play and dry gas is found in deeper portions of the play. It’s the sweet spot between the heavy oil and dry gas where operators get high volumes of natural gas and condensate or oil wells.
