Eagle Ford Shale pulls more than its fair share in U.S. oil production

Over half of 2013 U.S. oil production came from 20 counties, six of which are located in South Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale, according DrillingInfo.

The 20 counties — half spread through Eagle Ford and North Dakota’s Bakken Shale — represent just 2 percent of U.S. oil-producing counties yet accounted for 52 percent of 2013’s output.

Karnes County, located southeast of San Antonio, ranked 7th on the list, making it the highest-producing county in the Lone Star State.

2013 Top Texas oil producing counties include:

• Karnes County: 214,000 barrels per day

• LaSalle County: 141,000 barrels per day
• Dewitt County: 133,000 barrels per day
• Dimmit County: 117,000 barrels per day
• Gonzales County: 116,000 barrels per day
• McMullen County: 88,000 barrels per day
