Other Oil and Gas Properties In addition to its core unconventional resource plays, the company also operates or participates in other conventional and unconventional plays throughout the continental United States, including the Utica Shale in Pennsylvania, the Pearsall Shale in south Texas; the Cotton Valley, Haynesville, Bossier, and James Lime formations in east Texas; the Devonian Shale, Big Lime, Weir and Berea in West Virginia; and the Frio, Vicksburg and Wilcox formations in south Texas. Other Properties Ancillary to its exploration, development and production operations, the company operates gas gathering and transmission pipeline systems, made up of approximately 3,100 miles of pipeline with interconnects to three interstate transmission systems and five local distribution companies and various end users. The majority of its pipeline infrastructure is located in West Virginia and is regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for interstate transportation service and the West Virginia Public Service Commission (WVPSC) for intrastate transportation service. The company also has two natural gas storage fields located in West Virginia with a combined working capacity of approximately 4 Bcf (billion cubic feet of natural gas). Markets The principal markets for its natural gas are in the northeastern United States and the industrialized Gulf Coast area. In the northeastern United States, the company sells natural gas to industrial customers, local distribution companies and gas marketers both on and off its pipeline and gathering system. In the Gulf Coast area, the company sells natural gas to intrastate pipelines, natural gas processors and marketing companies. Properties in the Gulf Coast area are connected to various processing plants in Texas and Louisiana with multiple interstate and intrastate deliveries, affording the company access to multiple markets. Reserves As of December 31, 2013, the company had proved reserves of approximately 5,454 Bcfe (billion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent). Strategy Main components of the company’s business strategy include the following: disciplined capital spending focused on high-return, organic projects; low cost structure; conservative financial position and financial flexibility; continued portfolio management; and expand unconventional resource initiatives. Seasonality Demand for natural gas has been seasonal, with peak demand and typically higher prices occurring during the colder winter months.
