Eagle Ford producers

Key producers in the Eagle Ford Shale include Marathon Oil (MRO), ConocoPhillips (COP), Carrizo Oil and Gas, and EOG Resources (EOG).

As shown in the image above, all the above companies have at least one-third of their production coming in from the Eagle Ford. While Carizzo Oil and Gas saw a YoY (year-over-year) increase in production in 2016, Marathon, ConocoPhillips, and EOG Resources saw declines of 17%, 11%, and 2%, respectively.

Comparing these figures with those of producers in oil-rich regions such as the Permian Basin and the Bakken, we note that Concho Resources (CXO) and Apache (APA) saw YoY production increases of 5% and -5.5%, respectively.

Top players in the Bakken include Continental Resources (CLR) and Whiting Petroleum. In 2016, these companies saw their production fall 2.2% and 20.2%, respectively, YoY.
