Eagle Ford Shale Oil and Gas
99 images Created 3 Feb 2014
The Eagle Ford Shale is a massive formation stretching across South Texas from the Rio Grande to the Gulf Coast. It is the site of extensive well drilling and fracking for both oil and gas, with $30 Billion per year being invested. All of the wells, processing facilities and Gardendale Rail terminal in the photos did not exist in 2010. Night photos from NASA clearly show the bright glow of flaring from the entire region south of San Antonio.
