Eagle Ford: The Oil & Gas Year honors Porter
HOUSTON -- Texas Railroad Commissioner David Porter has been awarded “Man of the Year” by The Oil & Gas Year, a leading industry publication and comprehensive business guide, in recognition of his leading role in the responsible development of the Eagle Ford shale.
The Eagle Ford shale located in South Texas has played a strong part in the resurgence of U.S. oil and gas production.
Wildcat International Publishing officially launched the edition, The Oil & Gas Year Eagle Ford Texas 2013, at a ceremony in Houston, at which Commissioner Porter was presented with the award. This is The Oil & Gas Year’s first publication in the United States and explores the technological, commercial, and geological trends driving the U.S. energy industry’s renaissance in South Texas.
Commissioner Porter was acknowledged largely for the creation and his leadership of the Eagle Ford Shale Task Force, a diverse group of 24 members representing various interests and areas of expertise, including community leaders and local elected officials, water representatives, oil and gas companies, pipeline companies, and landowner and environmental interests. The Task Force met monthly over the course of a year and a half to discuss issues arising from the rapid development in the region.
