Business Wire

FORT WORTH, Texas -- January 16, 2013

RANGE RESOURCES CORPORATION (NYSE: RRC) today announced that its fourth
quarter 2012 production volumes reached a record high of 844 Mmcfe per day.
Fourth quarter 2012 production increased 35% over the prior-year quarter and
was 7% higher than third quarter 2012. While total production rose 35%, oil
and NGL production increased 41% during the fourth quarter reflecting the
Company’s focus on its high return, liquids-rich plays. Production for
full-year 2012 averaged 753 Mmcfe per day, a 36% increase over 2011. This
represents Range’s ninth consecutive year of double-digit production growth
and posting record production each year.

The Company also announced its preliminary fourth quarter 2012 natural gas,
NGLs and oil price realizations (including the impact of cash-settled hedges
and derivative settlements which would correspond to analysts’ estimates)
averaged $5.35 per mcfe, representing a 10% increase from the third quarter
2012 and an 11% decrease from the prior-year period. Production and
preliminary realized prices by each commodity for the fourth quarter were:
natural gas – 655 Mmcf per day ($4.22 per mcf), natural gas liquids – 21,652
barrels per day ($43.56 per barrel) and crude oil – 9,863 barrels per day
($82.30 per barrel).

Commenting on the announcement, Jeff L. Ventura, Range’s President and CEO,
said, “We are pleased that fourth quarter and full year production exceeded
expectations and that we achieved our ninth consecutive year of double-digit
production growth. This is a significant accomplishment for the entire Range
team. The 41% increase in fourth quarter oil and NGL production reflects the
high-quality nature of our large drilling inventory and positions us very well
in the current commodity price environment. We expect increasing liquids
production, coupled with our strong hedge position, to drive substantial cash
flow growth in 2013 and longer term, our high-return inventory and low-cost
structure to continue to drive shareholder value.”

During the fourth quarter, Range increased its commodity hedge position. The
Company currently has approximately 75% of its anticipated natural gas and
crude oil production for 2013 hedged at a weighted average floor of $4.18 per
Mmbtu and $94.36 per barrel, respectively. In addition, Range has 11,500
barrels of NGLs hedged above current market prices. Range’s updated hedge
position is shown in the table below.
