Paper Number: SPE-168973-MS
... Abstract The Eagle Ford Shale is recognized as the largest oil and gas development in the world, based on capital investment ( Wood Mackenzie 2012 ). Development typically consists of horizontal wells stimulated with multiple hydraulic fracture stages. Almost $30 billion will be spent...
