By optimal exploration and development of shale gas/oil in North America, USA can greatly reduce its dependency on Middle east hydrocarbon. This will also reduce global tension i.e the people of this globe especially the people of USA would live more peacefully which no gun power could ensure yet.

Good article, now we need to get some more holes sunk down there, because the government is about to pull Nuclear Energy, and according to BO, Natural gas is a "renewable" resource. Lets drill drill drill.

My husband and his brother own a couple hundred acres in DeWitt county over Eagle Ford and either ConocoPhillips or Petrohawk (I can't remember which) has had the lease on the minerals for several years now but have done nothing other than thumping the property. It's interesting because all of a sudden just in the last couple of months two pipeline companies are getting ready to break ground on our property and our land was staked two weeks ago for two wells to go up soon. How exciting!

As a service line operator I am happy to see more of an opportunity for work. This not only benefits the oil and gas industry but boosts the economy of the area we are working. Hopefully this with this wide spread of reserves we can become more dependent on ourselves than other OPEC countries

Yes of course! Eagle Ford development is ramping up in the recent days. Also, Eagle Ford Shale generated around $3 Billion in revenue in South Texas during 2010. A busy year expected for Eagle Ford Shale with $4.0 Billion worth opportunities up for grab!!!
