Marcellus Shale


Since the inception of Cabot’s horizontal drilling program in 2008, the Company’s Marcellus Shale position in northeast Pennsylvania has developed into the cornerstone asset of its portfolio and has been the primary driver of record production and reserve growth during this period.

The Company plans to drill approximately 60 net wells in the Marcellus Shale during 2017, with approximately 67% of the Company’s drilling and completion capital allocated to the area.

Cabot has approximately 179,000 net acres in the dry gas window of the Marcellus Shale, primarily in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. Cabot’s Marcellus Shale properties accounted for 93% of both the Company’s proved reserves and total net production as of year-end 2016.
