A decade in the Marcellus

Earlier this month we announced something pretty incredible: since beginning operations in Susquehanna County, Cabot has paid its landowners more than $1 billion in royalties.

For our latest WNEP Power to Save segment, we took a deeper look at what has been accomplished in ten years and to celebrate these milestones with the community.

Because of the investment in…

Pipelines: Safe and cost-efficient

The abundant production coming from the Marcellus isn't a secret - in fact we just posted about Cabot's recent milestones including a cumulative production of 2.5 TCF.
