Trends in Eagle Ford’s Productivity Compared to Other Shale Plays

In its May Drilling Productivity Report, the EIA (U.S. Energy Information Administration) estimated the average new-well production added by the rigs in each basin. According to the EIA, Eagle Ford rigs are the most productive as measured by new-well oil production per rig. The EIA expects new-well oil production per rig in the Eagle Ford Shale to rise the most by 53 barrels per day to 1,463 barrels per day in June compared to May.
