The Eagle Ford Shale Play lies underneath the Austin Chalk and Edwards Limestone formations throughout much of South and Central Texas. The play is approximately 50 miles wide and 400 miles long and varies in depth from 2,500 feet in the Texas Hill Country to 15,000 feet in LaSalle, Live Oak, Bee, Lavaca, and other counties.
