Abstract

In 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey published an assessment of technically recoverable continuous oil and gas resources of the Eagle Ford Group and associated Cenomanian–Turonian strata in the U.S. Gulf Coast of Texas. Estimated ultimate recoveries (EURs) were calculated with production data from IHS MarkitTM using DeclinePlus software in the Harmony interface. These EURs were a major component of the aforementioned quantitative resource assessment fact sheet. The calculated mean EURs for each oil assessment unit (AU) ranged from 113,000 barrels of oil in the Cenomanian–Turonian Mudstone Continuous Oil AU to 223,000 barrels of oil in the Submarine Plateau-Karnes Trough Continuous Oil AU. The calculated mean EURs for each gas AU ranged from 2.261 billion cubic feet of gas in the Submarine Plateau-Karnes Trough Continuous Gas AU to 3.116 billion cubic feet of gas in the Eagle Ford Marl Continuous Gas AU.
