The Eagle Ford Shale
Cortez was an early entrant in the Eagle Ford Shale Play, starting in 2009. The Company focused its evaluation and leasing efforts in the “volatile oil” window of the play, assembling its core positions in two of the most productive areas of the Eagle Ford trend. Since then, Cortez has partnered with several of the leading independent oil and gas companies in the country to develop its acreage. In the coming years, Cortez will participate in the drilling of hundreds of wells in order to efficiently develop our Lessors’ lands. The production from this play will add significantly to our domestic reserves.
