Gastar Exploration resumes unrestricted Marcellus Shale production

HOUSTON -- Gastar Exploration reported that production from its Marshall County, West Virginia, operations has resumed with no restrictions following the successful re-routing of natural gas volumes through the Williams operated midstream system and the return to service of the pipeline that transports condensate from the field to processing facilities.

Gastar currently has 50 wells producing, with seven additional wells temporarily shut-in due to drilling and completion operations on the producing well pads. Current gross average daily production is approximately 67 MMcfpd of unprocessed natural gas and 1,900 bbl of condensate.

Gastar' s Marcellus production was completely shut-in on April 5 following the rupture of a natural gas pipeline operated by Williams Partners, and on April 9, production resumed at a restricted rate.

Gastar currently estimates that production for the second quarter was reduced by approximately 162,000 Mcf of residual natural gas, 4,900 bbl of condensate and 8,000 bbl of natural gas liquids as a result of this incident.
