Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation Provides Operational Update,
Announces New Takeaway Capacity on Leidy South Expansion Project
HOUSTON, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG) ("Cabot" or the "Company") today provided an operational update on the heels of the in-service of the Atlantic Sunrise project on October 6, 2018 and announced the execution of a binding precedent agreement for new pipeline takeaway capacity on Transco’s Leidy South expansion project.
Due to the delay of the Atlantic Sunrise project’s in-service date from the second-half of August 2018 to October 6, 2018 and a modest change in the timing of the Company’s third-quarter pads being placed-on-production, Cabot preliminarily expects net production for the third-quarter of 2018 to be approximately 2,029 million cubic feet equivalent (Mmcfe) per day, representing a seven percent sequential increase in daily net production relative to the second-quarter of 2018 and a 19 percent increase relative to the prior-year comparable quarter on a divestiture-adjusted basis.

Natural gas price realizations for the third-quarter of 2018, both including and excluding the effect of hedges, are preliminarily expected to be $2.36 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf), representing a $0.54 discount to NYMEX settlement prices compared to a $0.99 discount during the third-quarter of 2017. “Our realized prices for the third-quarter came in higher than forecasted due to narrower basis differentials as fundamentals in the Northeast continued to improve,” commented Dinges. “We anticipate a further strengthening of realized
