BHP Billiton’s Eagle Ford production accelerated at the end of the first quarter of 2014. The company expects continued growth in U.S. onshore liquids production of approximately 75% for the year, with a priority focus on the Black Hawk region of the Eagle Ford in Karnes and Dewitt counties.
A the end of March 2014, BHP completed scheduled well remediation activities in its Hawkville acreage. That contributed in part to a 71% increase in liquids production for the company’s U.S. onshore production over a nine-month time period, ending March 2014. Across the company’s portfolio, liquids production increased 16% to ~210,958 boe/d or 77 MMboe/d over the same time frame.
