The deal brings Repsol into the Eagle Ford and allows them to gain 59,000 net acres of south Texas land. It is still unclear how this merger will affect those Eagle Ford shale operations. In a conference call on May 10th, Repsol said that Talisman’s assets had been consolidated into its upstream division, but they were not ready to reveal further details about their plans.
The announcement comes days after Talisman released strong first quarter results.
First Quarter Highlights:
- Production averaged 360,000 boe/d in the first quarter of 2015, up 2% from the first quarter of 2014.
