An updated Eagle Ford well map from the Texas Railroad Commission shows the number of natural gas wells producing in the play has doubled since January.

Over a 210 day period between January 7, 2013 and August 5, 2013, a little more than 7 oil wells and 4 gas wells have come online per day. A total of 1,537 oil wells and 954 natural gas wells have been brought to production. [Read more…]

An updated Eagle Ford well map was published by the RRC in mid-May.

Over a 98 day period between February and May, an average of almost 8 oil wells and almost 5 gas wells came online per day. It is obvious higher gas prices have been welcomed during the first half of the year.

The number of gas wells online has grown by almost 50% in just over three months.

Between February and May:

  • 768 oil wells came online – 3,462 producing
  • 448 gas wells came online – 1,443 producing
  • 5,497 permits had been approved and were pending development
  • More than 10,402 well permits have been drilled or are pending. Permits expire after two years, so many more have have been permitted over the past five years.

Data from the RRC is always a little delayed, so the numbers reflected are not be 100% accurate. The RRC is at the mercy of companies reporting data in a timely fashion. I suspect we have well over 5,000 producing Eagle Ford wells today.

The Texas Railroad Commission’s Eagle Ford Shale well map was updated with the most recent reported data through November 12, 2012.

Since July 3, the commission has issued 661 permits. That’s a little more than 5 permits per day over a period of ~130 days.

A total of 3,107 wells had been reported producing as of November 12. That’s 574 more oil wells and 133 more gas wells than we had as of June. Interestingly, that’s a pace of more than 5 wells coming online per day.

Data from the RRC is always a little delayed, so I suspect we’re closer 4,000 than 3,000 wells producing at year-end 2012.

The Texas RRC updated its Eagle Ford Shale well map with the most recent reported data through July 3, 2012.

Since May 14 when the RRC last updated the data points on its map, the commission has issued 367 permits. That’s more than 7 permits per day over a period of 50 days.

A total of 2,400 wells had been reported producing as of July 3. That’s 314 more oil wells and 107 more gas wells than we had as of May 14. If you’re counting, that’s a pace of more than 8 wells coming online per day.

Data from the RRC is always a little delayed, so we’re likely on pace to surpass 3,000 producing wells by the end of August or early September.
