Pennsylvania: Cabot Marcellus output tops 400 MMcfd

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 25
– Cabot Oil & Gas Corp., Houston, cited a compressor station upgrade in announcing that its northeastern Pennsylvania Marcellus shale reached a restricted 420 MMcfd of gas from 69 horizontal wells on May 24.

The former maximum restricted rate was 310 MMcfd from 67 horizontal wells, Cabot said. Upgrades to the Lathrop compressor station included the commissioning of new compression, new dehydration, and a second suction line.

Part of the increase came from previously curtailed wells. The two new wells were completed and turned in-line at 29.5 MMcfd and 29.7 Mmcfd, new highs for the company’s Marcellus program. Both wells are choked due to the temporary maximum throughput rate into the Tennessee Gas Pipeline, the company said.

All current volumes are being transported on Tennessee's 300 Line through various customer agreements with Cabot. Due to large gas volumes coming from the Marcellus and capacity constraints on the pipe, Cabot expects its production to hold at 400-420 MMcfd until the Springville line is commissioned in the 2011 fourth quarter.
