Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG) announced a second successful Eagle Ford shale well, as well as a new milestone for its Marcellus shale program

Eagle Ford 

Cabot recently completed and started producing its second Eagle Ford Oil Shale well – the Arminius Energy Trust #1 well. This Frio County, Texas, well was drilled with a horizontal length of 5,840' and completed with a 20-stage frac. The result was a 24-hour production rate of 759 barrels of oil per day and 1.0 Mmcf per day. 

"This is more than double the rate we saw on our initial discovery," said Dan O. Dinges, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have already drilled our third and fourth wells with completions on those scheduled for October and early November." Cabot's net acreage in the play is 53,000, all in the oil window.

Cabot has continued to improve the results it has seen from its operations in Susquehanna with two completions recently exceeding the 20 Mmcf per day rate level for a 24-hour initial production period. One well had a 4,569' lateral and an 18-stage frac, while the other was a 3,960' with a 15-stage frac. 

"These recent successes, combined with a newly completed three-well pad that is flowing back 55-frac stages, have provided the Company with a 230 Mmcf per day exit rate (gross) from the Marcellus, at the end of the third quarter," stated Dinges. "While we have reached capacity constraints, we do have 418 stages of completion either waiting on pipeline or completion, or flowing back after completion."
