OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PostRock Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:PSTR) today announced its results for the third quarter of 2010. Revenues increased $1.4 million, or 5.7%, to $25.3 million during the quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher realized gas prices offset by lower production volume and a decline in pipeline revenue. Production volumes fell to 53.9 Mcfe a day, a 10% decline from the prior year period primarily due to a lack of drilling in late 2008 and 2009. With increasing capital expenditures starting in the second quarter of 2010, production has stabilized at approximately 54 Mcfe a day. Average prices for the period, excluding realized hedging gains, increased to $4.33 per Mcfe. Realized hedging gains in the quarter decreased to $6.8 million from $19.6 million a year earlier. Pipeline revenue decreased $1.8 million, or 31.8%, to $3.8 million primarily due to the loss of a significant interstate pipeline customer in late 2009.
