Overview

A Premier Eagle Ford Operator


We are an independent oil and gas company engaged in developing, exploring, acquiring, and operating oil and gas properties in the Eagle Ford trend of South Texas. Our primary focus is on the Eagle Ford trend of South Texas and, to a lesser extent, the onshore and inland waters of Louisiana.

We have a long successful history in South Texas, where we have been producing oil and natural gas from the Olmos tight-sand formation for over twenty years. In 2009, we initiated a horizontal drilling program to the Eagle Ford shale formation lying just below the Olmos in the AWP field in McMullen County. Today, the Eagle Ford trend, which extends roughly 50 miles wide and 400 miles long, is one of the most drilled shale formations in the United States.

Swift Energy has approximately 70,000 net acres and over 500 identified drilling locations in the Eagle Ford. By focusing on the Eagle Ford play, we are able to leverage our decades of experience in the area when interpreting geological and operating trends. Additionally, as the operator of our fields, we are able to capitalize on economies of scale, minimize our cost structure, and better utilize our technical and operational expertise.

In 2015, we drilled 24 horizontal Eagle Ford wells.

Our noncore properties in Southeast and Central Louisiana complement our Eagle Ford portfolio and made up approximately 10% of our reserve base and 14% of our production in 2015.

Swift has drilled the top 12 Eagle Ford Gas wells and many of our wells far exceed the top 10% performance benchmark.
