Cabot Completing First Six Well Pad in 2014
Cabot is completing its first six-well pad, which includes four wells with lateral lengths of approximately 8,000′. The six-well pad is expected to provide approximately $600,000 of cost savings per well.
Cabot Eagle Ford 2014 Plans
Cabot is planning on 40 – 50 Eagle Ford wells in 2014. If the company sees better than expected results from its drilling efforts in the Eagle Ford, you may see more activity than currently planned, according to CEO, Dan Dinges.
Cabot, which is also active in the Marcellus Shale, is focused on maximizing operating efficiencies and managing its price risk in 2014. Cabot announced that it will continue to monitor regional natural gas prices before making a decision on further acceleration in 2014 in the Marcellus. Maintaining the Marcellus rig count at six rigs will reduce the 2014 capital budget from $1.375 to $1.475 billion to $1.3 to $1.4 billion.
