Cabot Boasts Highest Producing Wells in the Marcellus/Utica

Number 1 Cabot Oil & Gas announced yesterday that they’ve reached an important production milestone: They now produce more than one billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from the Marcellus Shale. All of Cabot’s Marcellus drilling happens in Susquehanna County, PA, so put another way, Susquehanna County is now producing more than a billion cubic feet of natural gas each and every day—and Cabot is not the only active driller in Susquehanna County! The company credits, in part, the rapid build out of pipeline infrastructure by Williams for the huge increase in production.

Buried in the same press release is what MDN considers major news. Two of Cabot’s recently drilled wells (on a single well pad) have a combined production rate exceeding 66 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (doing the math, each well averages 33 Mmcf/d). Compare that to Gulfport’s top-producing Utica Shale well, which produces 28.5 Mmcf/d (see this MDN story).
