Northern W. Va.: CONSOL Energy did not drill any horizontal wells in Northern W. Va. during the third quarter, as the 2012 drilling program was concluded in the second quarter. There were, however, some completions. The three-well Philippi 4 pad was completed in its entirety during the third quarter with 69 stages. The pad has completed lateral lengths ranging between 6,333' to 6,719'. All three wells were brought onto production during the month of August with individual well peak 24-hour rates ranging from 6.5 MMcfd to 9.2 MMcfd, the latter being a new CONSOL Energy record for Northern West Virginia. The six-well Alton 2 pad in Upshur County, drilled during the first quarter of 2012, was completed late in the second quarter with 135 stages. Completed lateral lengths ranged from 3,545' (12 stages) to 5,941' (25 stages). All six wells had been turned into production by the end of July with individual well peak 24 hour rates ranging from 3.5 MMcfd to 6.7 MMcfd. These flow rates represented significant improvements over the initial Alton 1 pad, which was drilled and completed in 2011.Marcellus Shale Wet Gas (Noble Energy-operated):
