EQT Production Company Key Developments

EQT Production Provides Capital Expenditure and Production Guidance for the Year 2015

EQT Production provided capital expenditure and production guidance for the year 2015. For the year, the company expects CAPEX of $2.3 billion. The breakdown includes $1.95 billion for well development; $90 million for exploration and developmental geological and geophysical activities; and the remainder for capitalized overhead, well maintenance, and compliance. Production sales volume in 2015 is expected to be 575 Bcfe to 600 Bcfe. In 2015, the company plans to drill 181 Marcellus wells with an average lateral length of 5,500 feet all of which will be on multi-well pads to maximize operational efficiency and well economics. More than 75% of the Marcellus drilling program will focus on the Company's core development areas in southwestern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia. EQT Production owns approximately 580,000 net Marcellus acres. The company plans to drill a total of 15 horizontal wells, which include 12 developmental wells that target the Upper Wolfcamp; and three exploration wells that target the Lower Wolfcamp and Cline zones. EQT owns approximately 73,000 net acres in the Permian Basin of Texas. The Company plans to drill five Utica wells. EQT spud its first Utica test well in Greene County, PA during the fourth quarter 2014, and plans to spud a second Utica test well in Wetzel County, WV during the first quarter of 2015.

Department of Environmental Protection Seeks $4.5 Million Penalty from EQT Production Company for Major Pollution Incident in Tioga County

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that it has filed a complaint with the state Environmental Hearing Board requesting a $4.5 million civil penalty from EQT Production Company for a major pollution incident in 2012 at the company's Phoenix Pad S location in Duncan Township, Tioga County. EQT fails to recognize the ongoing environmental harm from the significant amount of waste released by its leaking six million gallon impoundment. When EQT originally proposed the impoundment in its earth disturbance permit, the company stated it would be used to store fresh water only. However, after construction was complete in late 2011, the company decided to use the impoundment to store flowback water from Marcellus drilling operations to be used for fracking. This unauthorized progression compromised environmental protection, as no monitoring wells or leak detection were required to be installed around the impoundment based on its initial stated intended use as a fresh water impoundment. EQT ultimately proposed to construct a centralized waste impoundment adjacent to the Pad S impoundment and installed monitoring wells to establish baseline water quality in the area. A sampling event conducted on April 30, 2012 revealed elevated levels of chlorides and other parameters in two of the monitoring wells in the vicinity of the existing Pad S impoundment.
