Appalachian Footprint

Appalachian Footprint As a growing resource for domestic energy, the Appalachian Basin is burgeoning with new natural gas production activity, and EQT is one of the leading players within the region.

Production Footprint

With a planned investment of approximately $1.0 billion for production in 2016, EQT continues to be a formidable player in Appalachian Basin natural gas production. EQT drilled 161 wells in 2015, including 133 Marcellus wells, 24 Upper Devonian wells, and two Utica wells.The company continues to experience a high rate of development drilling success.

Through continuing improvements to its drilling capabilities in unconventional reservoirs, EQT’s existing Appalachian acreage position offers greater promise, and the company is extremely well poised to maintain its position as a leader in Appalachian production.

Drilling Rights

EQT has secured the drilling rights to nearly 3.4 million acres of land across the Appalachian Basin and other basins, including property in Kentucky, Ohio, Texas, West Virginia, Virginia and Pennsylvania. We strive to use the most efficient and environmentally-friendly drilling techniques to ensure we leave the land as we found it.
