Chesapeake Energy's Eagle Ford Shale assets, located across Texas, are an important part of the company's operations. The Eagle Ford Shale is a geological formation that has the capability to produce both natural gas and oil. Named for the town of Eagle Ford, Texas, this shale play extends nearly 50 miles wide and 400 miles long with an average thickness of 250 feet and depths reaching between 4,000 and 14,000 feet. Its high percentage of carbonate makes the shale more brittle and more conducive to hydraulic fracturing.
In 2023, Chesapeake Energy has entered into agreements to sell a portion of its Eagle Ford assets to WildFire Energy I LLC and INEOS Energy for $1.425 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively. The company will have approximately 50,000 acres in the southwest portion of the play, the "Rich Gas" portion, remaining after the two announced sales.
Chesapeake Energy expects to have 0.5 to 1 active rig in the area resulting in 20 to 25 wells to be turned in line in the Rich Gas portion of the play in 2023. As of 4Q'22, the Eagle Ford Shale assets accounted for 13% of the company's total production, with 90 net production (mboe/d), an average of 2 active rigs, 12 wells drilled, and 16 wells turned in line.
