Eagle Ford Crude Oil Production Still Not On Pre-Pandemic Levels
August 30, 2022
Constant increases in the past six months have not yet put Eagle Ford crude oil production on par with pre-pandemic levels, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said.
According to the EIA’s latest Drilling Productivity Report, crude oil production in the Eagle Ford region in southern Texas is estimated to average at around 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) during September 2022. Despite recent increases, less crude oil is being produced in the Eagle Ford region than before the pandemic – 1.4 million bpd in April 2020 – and much less than the all-time high of 1.7 million bpd in March 2015.
