Cabot restores partial Marcellus gas production after fire

By OGJ editors

Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. has restored some natural gas production following a Mar. 29 fire at the Lathrop compressor station in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus shale play.

The Houston independent currently is producing 200 MMcfd, which is 55% of the volume that giong through Lathrop before the fire, Cabot said. Production was restarted Mar. 30 by temporarily bypassing the compression station.

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