For the second quarter 2012, operating expenses for EQT Production were $140.9 million: $43.9 million higher than the same quarter last year. Depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A) expenses were $32.5 million higher, primarily due to an increase in produced volumes and a higher unit depletion rate. Consistent with the sales volume growth, selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense was $7.9 million higher; lease operating expense (LOE) was $1.5 million higher; and production taxes were $1.4 million higher. Per unit LOE decreased 14% to $0.19 per Mcfe, excluding production taxes.The Company realized an increase of $1.04 per Mcfe, which was due to its natural gas hedges, and a $0.74 per Mcfe premium over NYMEX natural gas prices, due to production from its liquids rich acreage.
