South Texas

South Texas MapPioneer's drilling activities in South Texas continue to be primarily focused on developing its substantial acreage position in the Eagle Ford Shale play. With approximately 290,000 gross acres, extensive 3-D seismic data and industry-leading technological expertise, we anticipate significant growth from the Eagle Ford Shale for years to come. 

In June 2010, Pioneer entered into an Eagle Ford Shale joint venture with Reliance Industries Limited. Pioneer sold 45% of its Eagle Ford Shale proved and unproved properties to Reliance for upfront cash and a portion of future drilling costs valued at approximately $1.1 billion. We have remained an operator in the play, targeting liquids-rich areas in its current drilling program.

We continue to expand our gas resource play along the Edwards Reef Trend with outstanding success. New well stimulation techniques have shown promise in enhancing production from new and existing wells. This asset has delivered significant production and reserves growth historically and promises to do the same in the future.
