Eagle Ford Growth Means Opportunity – TED Talk – Video

Posted on January 1, 2014


Eagle Ford is on top of my agenda during my stay at University of Texas at Austin and I just found a very interesting TED talk about Eagle Ford and the possibility of future boom towns in Texas.
Takeaways from the presentation include:

Eagle Ford is visible from space like the Great Wall of China
Development is happening is what used to be the poorest counties in Texas
$61 billion economic impact in 2012
Eagle Ford production will surpass 1 million b/d of oil in 2014
Be careful what you believe as “Truth”
Techniques for capturing shale gas and oil were unveiled by smaller independent operators
Sustainable development plans are needed to support growing communities
