Eagle Ford operators are maintaining their growing rates of production and are set to pass a new milestone, according to the Energy Information Administration. Jennifer Hiller from the San Antonio Express-News reports:

The U.S. Energy Information Administration expects that the Eagle Ford Shale will produce 1.51 million barrels of crude oil and other liquids daily in September.

It would be a gain of around 31,000 daily barrels over August production for the South Texas field, according to the EIA’s latest Drilling Productivity Report, released this week.

The EIA data track the major U.S. shale fields — the Eagle Ford, Permian Basin, Bakken, Marcellus, Haynesville and Niobrara. This month the agency added the Utica region in eastern Ohio, a rapidly growing natural gas field, to its Drilling Productivity Report.

Hiller also reported on production levels in shale plays nationwide – check out the full report:
