Range Reports Outstanding 2012 Results

Commenting, Jeff Ventura, the Company’s President and CEO, said, “Range had outstanding operational results for 2012. The Marcellus Shale play that Range discovered in 2004 became the largest producing field in the U.S. in 2012. Our million acre position in Pennsylvania provides for future growth with low reinvestment risk and strong rates of return. The Marcellus fueled our 29% increase in proved reserves while increasing our liquids reserves by 64%. Year-over-year production was up 36% while our liquids growth in the fourth quarter was 41% compared to the prior year quarter. Our cost structure per mcfe improved in each quarter of 2012. All-in finding and development costs continue to be under a dollar per mcfe with our three year average being $0.82 per mcfe and our three year reserve replacement averaging 815%. Consistent low finding costs are now visibly translating into lower DD&A rates in our financial statements, with $1.46 per mcfe in the fourth quarter. The lower rate will help drive future earnings. Our reserves per well in the Marcellus continue to improve as we gain additional production history and continue to optimize drilling and completion designs.

“Looking ahead, 2013 should be even better than 2012. We expect to grow production in the 20% to 25% range utilizing our existing low-cost, high rate of return inventory. Range’s liquids production is expected to grow disproportionately greater than overall production in 2013 as we continue to focus the majority of our capital in our liquids-rich areas. With the continued ramp up in production volumes, we expect our cost structure to improve further as volumes grow faster than our absolute costs. Importantly, with our access to the growing global markets for NGLs through our innovative Mariner West and East projects we are increasing our price realizations and improving our profit margins. In addition to the Marcellus, our Horizontal Mississippian oil play is gaining substantial momentum and should add to our liquids production and reserves, while the Cline Shale, Wolfberry and Utica plays have exciting liquids potential. We are looking for 2013 to be a year of increasing production, reserves, cash flow and earnings which should translate into higher per share value for all Range shareholders.”
