HOUSTON, Feb. 29 -- EOG Resources Inc. expects to begin natural gas production in June from British Columbia's Horn River basin.
The Houston independent estimates initial production potential from the basin to be 3.5-5 MMcfd.
EOG has accumulated leaseholds on 140,000 net acres near British Columbia's northern boundary. Production is expected to be ramped up significantly starting in 2010, EOG executives told analysts during a Feb. 27 conference call.
