Range Announces Marketing and Transportation Agreements

Range Announces Marketing and Transportation Agreements 
FORT WORTH, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 --   RANGE RESOURCES
CORPORATION (NYSE: RRC) announced today that it has signed additional
transportation and marketing agreements to support its future natural
gas and ethane production growth.  
Range has signed an agreement to act as a foundation shipper on the
ET Rover pipeline, a natural gas pipeline project of ET Rover
Pipeline, LLC, a subsidiary of Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP).
The project will provide Range the flexibility to move Pennsylvania
natural gas to Dawn, Ontario and south to the Gulf Coast. Range has
agreed to transport up to 400,000 Mmbtu per day for 20 years starting
in October 2017. The natural gas will be supplied directly from a
regional processing plant so there will be no additional
transportation charge to move this gas to these potentially premium
markets.  
Range has also signed its first two LNG supply agreements subject to
commencement of the projects. The Company entered into an agreement
with an affiliate of Cheniere Energy, Inc (NYSE: LNG) to supply gas
to the Sabine Pass LNG terminal on the Gulf Coast. The Sabine Pass
facility is expected to commence service in late 2015. Range is
expected to supply gas to the facility for five years starting in
2017. Range also signed an agreement with another company to supply
natural gas to another LNG terminal for a term of ten years. Further,
Range is in active discussions with several major international
companies to supply natural gas to other LNG facilities. The Company
has existing firm capacity agreements to supply gas to these LNG
customers. 
Range has also executed two additional fixed term ethane sales
agreements that are subject to successful project completion. The
first contract will potentially supply an affiliate of Sasol Ltd.
(NYSE: SSL) with 10,000 barrels of ethane per day for a multi-year
term. Range expects to utilize its ATEX transportation capacity to
supply the contract. Sasol anticipates reaching final investment
decision later this year on its proposed 1.5 million ton per annum
ethane cracker and derivatives complex near Lake Charles, Louisiana.
The second ethane agreement would supply ASCENT, the petrochemical
complex planned by the Odebrecht O
rganization in Parkersburg, West
Virginia. The ethane agreement commits Range to 5,000 barrels per day
for a term of 15 years. The ASCENT ethane will be supplied directly
from a regional processing plant, thus resulting in no additional
transportation fee to Range. These two deals combined provide Range a
revenue uplift as compared to leaving the ethane in the gas stream.
The agreement with ASCENT/Odebrecht Organization confirms Range's
commitment to the downstream economic development within the
Appalachian region where Range is a leader in the growth of this
region. 
Commenting, Jeff Ventura, Range's President and CEO, said "Range's
marketing team continues to expand our marketing capabilities for
natural gas and ethane. The Rover pipeline provides Range flexibility
in selling natural gas to high demand markets in Canada and the Gulf
Coast, while the LNG and ethane supply agreements further diversify
and strengthen our customer base with industry leading companies.
Importantly, these various contracts support our plan to grow
production by 20% to 25% for many years giving us base contracts in
place with leading companies in key areas that allow for possible
future expansion."
