EOG Resource's Eagle Ford resource potential went up 45% to 3.2 billion boe from 2.2 billion boe in 2013.
In 2014, EOG will be focusing a large portion of its $8.1 - $8.3 billion capital budget in the Eagle Ford Shale. This decision comes on the heels of increased well productivity and initial production rates in the play in 2013.
The company has plans to drill 520 net wells across its Eagle Ford acreage. At that rate, the company has a drilling inventory in the Eagle Ford of more than 12 years.
EOG Resources Reserves in the Eagle Ford
EOG's resource potential increased from 2.2 billion boe to 3.2 billion boe. That's a significant increase, and it gives EOG a lot of running room to develop the play and produce better results over a long time frame.
n 2013, EOG continued its downspacing efforts in the Eagle Ford. Even with downspacing, net reserves per well increased to 450,000 boe from 400,000 boe in 2013.
