Quarterly reporting season continues. Yesterday Cabot Oil & Gas, one of our favorite Marcellus drillers, reported that production for 3Q13 averaged an amazing 107.1 billion cubic feet for the quarter. That’s a 61% increase over the same time last year. Truly astonishing. Also of interest, during 3Q13 Cabot drilled a pad with four wells in Susquehanna County, PA with 109 total frac stages across the four wells. Those combined four wells produced an initial production rate of 110 million cubic feet per day (Mmcf/d)–an average of 27.5 Mmcf/d per well! Just unheard-of rates.
Here’s Cabot’s 3Q13 financial and operations update from yesterday, with details of the Marcellus drilling operations in Susquehanna County, PA:
