Cabot hits giant natural gas well in Susquehanna County

By Bob Downing Published: March 1, 2013

From the Marcellus Drilling News:

Energy analyst Richard Zeits has been looking at Cabot Oil & Gas and its productive Marcellus shale wells in Pennsylvania's Susquehanna County on the Seeking Alpha website.

In his latest post, Zeits talks about the uber-productive wells Cabot has drilled: 30 wells in the fourth quarter of last year that turned in initial 24-hour flow rates of 20 million cubic feet of natural gas, settling back to a 30-day average rate of 16.6 Mmcf/d.

Even more astonishing? One well they drilled—with 35 frack stages—had a 24-hour initial rate of 41.4 Mmcf/d and settled back to a 30-day average of 35.9 Mmcf/d.

That is huge. Superlatives are not enough to express how big this news is. These are the highest numbers we’ve ever seen—higher than the Gulfport wells in the Ohio Utica Shale (although this is dry gas only, so it’s not a true apples to apples comparison). This is big news not only for Cabot and Pennsylvania.
