             Pending approval from the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents, the new Eagle Ford Center for Research, Education and Outreach (EFCREO) will bring together industry, governments and university researchers to work toward ensuring sustainable development of the Eagle Ford Shale Reserve. In addition to focusing on unconventional gas recovery, including horizontal drilling and fracking, the EFCREO will also assess some of the common community-related issues identified in the 23 counties in the Eagle Ford Shale play area. Housed in Texas A&M-Kingsville’s Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering, the EFCREO reflects the university’s commitment to provide technical and research support for industry and communities impacted by the Eagle Ford Shale.
