Cabot's Q2 Portfolio Wide Production

Across the company's portfolio, which includes ~200,000 net acres in the Marcellus Shale, equivalent production in the second quarter of 2014 was 127.6 Bcfe, consisting of 121.8 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas and 961,000 bbl of liquids.

Our total liquids volumes increased 40 percent sequentially—with crude oil and condensate volumes increasing 44 percent—due to strong well performance from new Eagle Ford wells that were placed on production during the quarter.
