LONDON, Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Eagle Ford Shale: Crude Oil Prices Level Off Development Activity
Operators in the Eagle Ford have cut 2015 capital budgets significantly due to lower crude oil prices and in the near term further development of the play will slow significantly compared to 2014. In order to reduce costs quickly, rig contracts have been wound down by operators resulting in a large drop in active rigs during the first quarter of 2015. In order to improve drilling economics, operators have focused on driving down well costs, pressuring service providers to drop costs, pushing drilling rates down, and testing alternative completion methods to improve well productivity. Due to the drastic shift in development schedules for operators, fewer wells are being drilled, completed and brought online. As a result, production levels from the Eagle Ford in 2015 are likely to see a minimal increase compared to 2014 and plateau until market conditions improve.
