    We wanted to use the flare gas or capped fields for further process. (1) How do we find the wells that are capped due to majority of gas or higher quantity of gas flare (2) Contact details of the selected wells to see if we can install for unit to process in the gas flare line.

      Mr. Dawson, do you have a good source for all of the emergency contacts?

I and others are members and we are beginning to compile this data for the various Operators, midstream companies, etc.. If provided to this webpage, we would hope that it could be posted accordingly.

  7. Tim Phillips says:

    Approximately how many wells have been drilled in the Eagleford Shale and how many per year are expected in 2014 and 2015?

    • R.T. Dukes R.T. Dukes says:

      About 7,500 have been completed and are producing. About 1,100 per quarter are being drilled right now and I would expect that to change much. 8,000 plus well will likely be drilled between now and the end of 2015.

    ShaleExperts.com is the website.
    Keep up the good work.

  15. ed garcia says:

    Are you still putting out list of “Eagle Ford Rig Count by Operators” ?
    Any lists available of Eagle Ford operators by capital invested in the EF region??
    Thanks! Really enjoying our information!

    • R.T. Dukes R.T. Dukes says:

      Mr. Garcia,

      We are still publishing the rig count each week, but we are not publishing the operator rig count. Smith Bits has discontinued its service, so the only way to get operated rig counts is by pay services from Rig Data. If you go back to April, You can see the operated rig counts here http://eaglefordshale.com/drilling-rig-count/

      If anyone knows of another source, I’d love to hear about it.

  16. Jim Bural says:
