Timelapse Video of Fracking in the Eagle Ford

Marathon Oil has posted a new timelapse video to our YouTube channel. The two-minute video shows the drilling and fracking of a typical Marathon Oil well in the Eagle Ford. It was captured in the summer of 2012 at a well location in Karnes County, Texas. 

It’s a very interesting watch!

The Eagle Ford Shale Continues to Grow!

eaglefordThe future is looking bright for the Eagle Ford Shale! The Railroad Commission in Texas regulates the exploration and production of oil and gas in Texas. For more than 120 years, the Commission has played a critical role in the establishment of Texas as an international energy leader.

According to the Railroad Commissioner David Porter, “The Eagle Ford Shale has the potential to be the single most significant economic development in the history of the state of Texas.”  The Eagle Ford Shale has been rapidly growing and developing over the last decade, and now it is very possible that it will become the largest onshore discovery EVER in the United States!  Additionally, there is more capital is invested in the play than any other oil and gas development in the world! Porter goes on to say, “The Eagle Ford Shale has the potential to become the most active oil and gas play in North America, with approximately 235 drilling rigs currently running. Operators forecast that the play will continue to develop for decades to come.” 

To get a better idea of just how prosperous this region is, take a look at the facts below. The Eagle Ford Shale recently posted an article called “Eagle Ford Facts that Might Surprise You”.

  • If the Eagle Ford lives up to its potential and reserves are greater than 10 billion barrels, it will be the largest U.S. onshore discovery ever
  • It’s the fastest growing shale play in the world and has grown to almost 700,000 b/d of oil production in five years since its discovery
  • Light, sweet crude oil production near the Gulf Coast petrochemical complex make it more valuable than other grades that must be transported longer distances
  • Wells are getting cheaper as companies gain experience and shift to pad drilling
  • More is invested in the Eagle Ford than any other play in the world – Eagle Ford Capital Spending Makes the Play To the Largest in the World

In 2011, when the nation’s unemployment rate was above nine percent, South Texas was generating a windfall of high-paying jobs— and the oil and gas industry’s demand for skilled labor in the Eagle Ford Shale is expected to remain strong.

Here at Eagle Ford Village, located in Dilley, Texas, we are proud to offer affordable housing for all of these workers that are in demand in the Eagle Ford Shale! We offer offer short-term, long-term and by the night accommodations. Our cabins and lodging in Dilley are located 1.5 miles east of I-35, exit 84. Feel free to contact us anytime to make a reservation!

Darla moved to the Eagle Ford Shale last October from South West Missouri because she was ready for her next adventure … and we are so glad she did!

“The first time I saw Eagle Ford Village it was just a big field with a couple of roads. I have to admit I was a little scared and shocked at the same time. Now that I am coming up on my 10 month anniversary with Eagle Ford Village, each day that goes by I am more and more proud of what we have built here. The tennants tell us all the time that they feel comfortable and relaxed and I am proud to have been a part of Eagle Ford Village from the beginning. After all of the long hours that the men and women who reside here work, I am so glad that this is their home away from home.” — Darla

Big Things Happening in the Eagle Ford Shale

There was a great article on MySA this week called “Eagle Ford could usher in a new era” this week. The article discusses the booming business happening in the Eagle Ford Shale and the author, Mickey Roth, President emeritus of Intercontinental Wealth Advisors LLC, even goes so far as to say  “I have read that by about 2020, our nation may no longer need to import oil from OPEC.

Here at Eagle Ford Village, located in Dilley, Texas, we certainly can confirm how busy the area has been. We have been at capacity consistently since we opened and are now just getting ready to launch Phase II which will offer even more hotel accommodations.

This is good news as it is expected that there will be continued job growth in the Eagle Ford Shale. We look forward to continuing to expand Eagle Ford Village and provide hotel and motel workforce housing. We offer long-term hotel stays and short-term hotel stays in Eagle Ford for all of your needs.
