San Antonio event to highlight Eagle Ford Shale’s 10th anniversary – San Antonio Business Journal – Sergio Chapa

The San Antonio Business Journal, Houston Business Journal and South Texas Energy & Economic Roundtable are co-hosting an event to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the discovery of a new gas field in the Eagle Ford Shale.

Petrohawk Energy Corp. made history with its announcement on Oct. 21, 2008, that it had discovered the field in La Salle County. That discovery about 90 miles south of San Antonio started the transformation of South Texas into an oil and natural gas powerhouse.

Some 10 years later, the Business Journal and its partners are hosting the “Eagle Ford Shale-A-Bration” to reflect on the importance of that discovery and how the South Texas shale play is transforming global energy markets.

The luncheon will take place at Hangar 9 at Brooks in south San Antonio on Oct. 19. A keynote speaker and panelists will be announced later. Tickets and table sponsorships are available on the Business Journal’s event website.
