Institutional Ownership

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.

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.

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.

SilverBow Resources has drilled 12 of the top 15 gas wells in the Eagle Ford and many of our wells far exceed the top 10% performance benchmark.
