From Bricker & Eckler, a Columbus law firm:
An economist from Texas A&M’s Real Estate Center recently estimated that with approximately 1,250 wells capable of being drilled each year within the 400-mile-long Eagle Ford Shale in Texas, it will take 16 years to reach the 20,000 wells needed to produce all of the oil and gas available in that play, the Houston Chronicle reports.
However, the research director for the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Institute for Economic Development says that other factors, such as the price of oil and gas, increase the estimated amount of time it will take to recover the 3-10 billion barrels of oil there to as much as 20 to 25 years, the article said.
