Cabot Sells TX & OK Properties – Plows Proceeds into Marcellus

Cabot Oil & Gas is an amazing company. They (currently) drill in a single northeastern Pennsylvania county–Susquehanna County. And in that single county they have 8 of the top 10 producing Marcellus shale wells in the entire state (see PA’s Top 10 Marcellus Shale Wells – Full Details). Cabot produces an amazing 1 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas per day from their wells in Susquehanna County (see Who’s a Member of the Marcellus “1 Bcf/d” Club?). And get this, they can make money on selling their gas for as low as $1.20 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf). That has to rank them among the best-run, most efficient drillers in the world. No wonder the company, with just 1/10th of the revenues of Chesapeake Energy, is worth more than Chessy (see Corporate Hubris Humbles Chesapeake – Cabot Soars Sure & Steady).

So it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that Cabot has just sold off more (the rest of?) it’s oil and gas properties in West Texas and Oklahoma for $188 million and plans to invest that money in the Marcellus…
