Cabot restores Marcellus shale gas production after fire

By OGJ editors

Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. has restored its Marcellus shale production in Susquehanna County, Pa., to predisruption levels following restart of the Lathrop Compressor Station, which was damaged by a Mar. 29 fire (OGJ Online, Apr. 3, 2012).

Cabot and Williams Partners LP are investigating cause of the fire. The fire quickly extinguished itself, and no injuries were reported.

As of Apr. 5, six compressor units were operational and the seventh was to start this week.  Building repairs also were expected to be completed soon, Cabot said.

Dan O. Dinges, Cabot chairman, president, and chief executive officer, estimated the disruption deferred about 1 bcf of gas production in total, which he called “a minor impact to the year.”
