Who We Are
EQT is one of the largest natural gas exploration and production companies in the Appalachian Basin, with operations in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia.
We are an industry leader in drilling technologies such as horizontal air drilling and extended lateral wells.
EQT is driving the nation’s energy independence from importing foreign oil.
EQT has more than 1,800 employees and several thousand local contractors working throughout our operations areas.
What We Do
EQT owns or maintains drilling rights to 3.5 million acres of land in the Appalachian Basin.
The company drilled 489 gross wells in 2010. Of those, 326 were horizontal wells, 236 targeting the Huron play and 90 targeting the Marcellus play. The company also drilled 95 vertical coalbed methane (CBM) wells.
EQT owns or operates more than 11,000 miles of pipeline, forming an extensive midstream infrastructure that allows EQT to gather, transport and deliver natural gas to markets in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic United States.
EQT owns the natural gas distribution company, Equitable Gas Company, which serves approximately 275,000 customers in Southwestern Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia.
History & Outlook
A true Appalachian company, EQT has been headquartered in Pittsburgh for more than 120 years.
Because EQT’s Appalachian reserves are geographically situated between the Northeastern and Midwestern United States, where the demand for natural gas is historically high, our outlook for continued growth remains high.
EQT meets and often exceeds all Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) regulations.
Our responsible water resource management allows us to protect and limit impact on public water sources.
We collaborate with environmental groups to ensure our projects blend naturally into the environment and cause minimal disruption.
