Eagle Ford Consortium Chairman Leodoro Martinez told the San Antonio Business Journal that once shale oil opens up for foreign investment later this year, midstream companies in Texas will have lucrative business opportunities to build up Mexico's infrastructure. 

What it does for our shale area, is that it opens up a lot of activity for our border communities such as Eagle Pass, Del Rio and Laredo.


The Eagle Ford Consortium addresses issues that are the result of the economic impact of the oil and gas exploration that is taking place within the Eagle Ford Shale. For more information about membership or to register for the conference, go to eaglefordconsortium.org
