STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Dec. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rex Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:REXX) today provided an update on its operations.

Appalachian Basin — Warrior South Prospect

The five-well J. Anderson pad, located in Guernsey County, Ohio, was placed into sales from its resting period at an average five-day sales rate per well (excluding downtime) of 1,886 Boe/d (40% NGLs, 40% gas, 20% condensate) assuming full ethane recovery and an average natural gas shrink of 12%. The five wells produced with an average casing pressure of 3,293 psi during the five-day sales period on an average 18/64 inch choke. The five-well pad was drilled to an average total measured depth of approximately 12,873 feet with an average lateral length of approximately 4,250 feet and was completed in an average of 28 stages, utilizing the company's 150' "Super Frac" design. Based on composition analysis, the gas being produced averaged 1,257 BTU.

Tom Stabley, Rex Energy's Chief Executive Officer commented, "The strong pressure profiles and early production results of our five-well J. Anderson pad are very encouraging, especially given the limited choke size we are utilizing to produce the wells. We are also pleased that these wells, along with our first three Warrior South Prospect wells, are currently producing into sales without any midstream constraints. We feel the production results of the five J. Anderson wells further demonstrate the value of our acreage position in the Warrior South Prospect."

Appalachian Basin — Butler Operated Area

In the Butler Operated Area, the company has recently placed into sales four of the six wells on the Baillie Trust pad. The four wells placed into sales are the stacked laterals in the Marcellus and Upper Devonian formations, which consist of two Marcellus wells (Baillie Trust 2H and Baillie Trust 4H) and two Upper Devonian wells (Baillie Trust 5H and Baillie Trust 6H) offset above the laterals in the Marcellus. The average lateral length of these wells was 4,605 feet and they were completed with an average of 30 stages, utilizing the company's 150' "Super Frac" completion design. The production from these wells is expected to substantially fill the existing 90 MMcf/d of processing capacity at the Sarsen and Bluestone facilities. As previously announced, additional processing capacity is on schedule for completion in the second quarter of 2014 with the commissioning of the Bluestone II facility.
