One billion cubic feet can be hard to imagine let alone imagine what it can do – so we’ll try to put it into perspective. The 1 Bcf of Cabot’s natural gas production in a 24-hour period can be used for one of the following:

    • Supply 24,315 households with their electrical needs for a FULL YEAR.
    • Meet the average electrical needs for 8,875,076 households for one day.
    • Fuel 86,159 natural gas vehicles on a road trip from Boston to San Francisco.
    • Fuel 559 natural gas vehicles round trip to the moon. Be sure to take picture of the moon landing on your visit.

And that’s just the production from one company for one day in the Marcellus.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]You can read the full press release on Cabot’s production below:

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row animation=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]HOUSTON, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG) today announced that for the first time in its history, the Company’s Marcellus operations surpassed one Bcf of gross production per day. The achievement of this milestone resulted in Cabot’s total Company net production simultaneously exceeding the one Bcfe per day level, also a new record high.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row animation=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]”The successful collaboration of our employees and members of the Williams’ team made this accomplishment possible,” said Dan O. Dinges, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Throughout the month of December we have been gaining production momentum and month-to-date our total Company average net production rate is 930 Mmcfe per day, which is above our exit rate expectation expressed in our third quarter call.” Dinges added, “Clearly, production will vary day to day due to field logistics, but our new baseline for production has moved significantly higher and we will work to build on this throughout 2013.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row animation=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]This record was primarily the result of new Marcellus wells and additional infrastructure. Specifically, a recent turned-in-line two-well pad illustrates the production potential of the Company’s Marcellus assets. This pad has wells with lateral lengths of approximately 6,900′ and 4,400′, and a combined initial production rate of over 66 Mmcf per day. Also, additional compression and dehydration facilities allow Cabot to expand its takeaway capacities. The Company is currently delivering approximately 55 percent of its production to Transco, 40 percent to Tennessee Gas Pipeline and 5 percent to Millennium Pipeline. “Our ability to reach multiple markets with deliveries into three major interstate pipelines strengthens our competitive advantage and provides more opportunities for growth in Marcellus production,” commented Dinges.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row animation=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Asset Sale[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row animation=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]The Company has agreed to terms on the sale of four South Texas fields to an undisclosed third party.  The sale includes legacy conventional properties with approximately 18 Bcfe of booked reserves and 2.2 Mmcfe per day of current production.  Proceeds from the sale will approximate $29 million, subject to closing adjustments, and will result in a book loss of approximately $12 million after-tax.  Closing is scheduled for this week. “We continue to explore opportunities to high grade our portfolio by monetizing legacy assets and redeploying those funds into our high-return projects,” commented Dinges.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row animation=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation, headquartered in Houston, Texas is a leading independent natural gas producer with its entire resource base located in the continental United States.
