Our 2015 merger with Rosetta Resources added to our portfolio new high-potential acreage in the Eagle Ford Shale in south-central Texas.
The Eagle Ford Shale is a formation that holds both oil and natural gas in a shale band extending from the lower reaches of the Rio Grande River northeast, parallel to the Texas coastline. Our operations are focused on 33,000 acres in the southwestern part of this formation, with a field office in Dilley, Texas.
We are tapping the potential within this area through enhanced completion designs to access additional layers of productivity within the Eagle Ford. The first three Noble Energy-designed completions are among the most productive Eagle Ford wells ever completed, and we continue to improve the performance of these assets by testing optimized completions techniques.
