Industry leaders acknowledged the Eagle Ford shale’s significant impact throughout South Texas communities, noting the growth it has brought to schools, parks, and infrastructure.
On Friday, October 19, an Eagle Ford Shale-A-Bration was held at historic Hanger 9 located at Brooks Field in the south area of San Antonio. The occasion was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first discovery well being drilled in the Eagle Ford Shale. Chris Ashcraft, South Texas Energy & Economic Roundtable (STEER) Interim President, said, “STEER is proud to be a part of the Eagle Ford Shale and was honored to be a part of this milestone celebration. The growth that South Texas has seen from the Eagle Ford Shale is unprecedented, with new schools, parks and roads, the transformations are all around us. We look forward to seeing what the future of oil and gas production will hold for South Texas and the nation.”
