Plaza de Armas forum on Eagle Ford shale's impact on San Antonio, South Texas

REPLAY THE VIDEO:  Plaza de Armas hosted a readers' forum to discuss the impact of the Eagle Ford shale on San Antonio and the surrounding region. The recent oil and gas boom coming from the 24-county stretch has created thousands of jobs and benefitted countless others. But what does the future hold with regards to long-term job prospects and environmental impact?

Panelists at the Feb. 21 forum included Mario Hernandez, president of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation; writer and leaseholder Bill Sibley; and Tom Tunstall, director of UTSA's Center for Community and Business Research. Plaza de Armas Editor Greg Jefferson moderated.

For a little more background on the Eagle Ford, the state Railroad Commission has a lot of good information. The image below comes from the Railroad Commission's page.
