As new technologies for the extraction of natural gas spread across the globe, many nations could tap abundant supplies of unconventional gas that occur within their borders. This infographic illustrates the distribution of natural gas supplies around the world, how natural gas will likely increase its share of the world’s energy mix, and the economic benefits that will result from this shift.

While steady completion results continue in the Eagle Ford, several recent land transactions are likely to influence future development.

The Eagle Ford

With an estimated 7 to 10 billion barrels of oil lying in wait, the Eagle Ford is one of the largest unconventional resource plays under development globally. Over 3,200 wells were completed in the region in 2013 alone. To date, oil and gas activity in the Eagle Ford has created 116,000 jobs and contributed $60 billion to the U.S. economy. That’s impressive, considering just five years ago the Eagle Ford was virtually inactive. The first commercial discovery in 2008 by Petrohawk Energy (now part of BHP Billiton) – a well that flowed at 7.6 million cubic feet of gas per day – launched a surge of activity that is still growing today.Now, top E&Ps like EOG, Chesapeake, Marathon, ConocoPhillips and Anadarko have large-scale operations in the Eagle Ford. The region has become a prime target for investment because of its favorable economics, established infrastructure, proximity to demand centers, and staggering resource availability. Companies with prime locations are seeing more than a 100% rate of return, and the current pace of drilling is expected to continue for at least five more years.
