EQT Reports Second Quarter 2012 Earnings

Third-party gathering, processing and transmission rates included $0.12 per Mcfe for the second quarter 2012, reducing revenues by $7.1 million due to selling unused capacity on the El Paso 300 line that was not under long-term resale agreements, at prices lower than paid by EQT. Hedge impact included $0.14 per Mcfe for the second quarter 2012, which reduced revenues by $8.2 million due to a financial derivative adjustment applicable to prior periods.
