How Thick Is the Eagle Ford?

Interestingly, the Biggest Wells Are Not Found in the Thickest Portion of the Play

The Eagle Ford Shale’s thickness varies several hundred feet across the region and there’s not a significant correlation to thickness and well productivity.

The play’s thickness ranges from less than 100 ft to 400 feet near the Mexico border. The average thickness is 250 ft across the most commonly targeted portions of the play.
