As the Eagle Ford play continues to mature, the prospective boundries of the formation continue to expand.
Originally thought to be centered primarily in South Texas, recent activity in Gonzales and DeWitt Counties have produced some of the most impressive wells to date. As a result, many of the most recent presentations from the Oil and Gas producers active in the region are now showing an expanded view of the play that now places Gonzales/DeWitt in the center of the activity.
That said, it now appears that counties even further to the North and East could potentially be included in the productive boundries of the trend.
Magnum Hunter has recently completed their Gonzo Hunter 1-H in the Northeast corner of Gonzales on the boundries of Fayette and Lavaca Counties. Although they have not officially released the IP results as of yet, they did allude in a recent investors meeting that the well is online and that that the IP rate will be falling between the 1,000-2,000 BOE range once it is has been officially tested. Impressive well for the area and one that is generating much interest in the region.
Leasing activity in Southern Fayette County is now going full bore and producers like Clayton Williams have also been testing Eagle Ford completions as far North and Eastward as Burleson and Grimes Counties.
I'm starting this thread for those of us with interests in this Northeast region of the Eagle Ford play so that we can all stay informed about leasing activity, well permitting and production/operations in this area as the play continues to expand and be defined.
