EP Energy currently holds over 91,000 acres in the Eagle Ford with activity in La Salle and Atascosa counties. In addition to adding 8,300 square feet of work, the $1.3 million construction project will likely add new jobs to the area.

The company reported strong first quarter results for its Eagle Ford operations and touted improved well performance and significantly lowering well costs. Additionally, about two-thirds of the Q1 capital was allocated to the Eagle Ford program.

Clay Carrell – COO, said “We also continue to see execution improvements. We have reduced our average drilling cycle times from 10 days to 9 days and this is in an asset that we have been drilling in for over five years. Our 40-acre development is driving cost efficiencies, due to the use of three and four well pads. Importantly this development is improving our reserve recoveries per section which results in improved returns from our capital program.”

  • Completed 38 wells across its Eagle Ford program
