Cabot's push to diversify its gassy production mix looks promising. The firm holds more than 120,000 net acres across the Eagle Ford shale and the Anadarko Basin, and while it's likely to remain less than 10% of total volumes throughout our forecast period, we project Cabot's oil production to grow at a compound annual rate of almost 50% through 2015.
Additionaly, Cabot controls more than a decade of highly productive, low-cost drilling inventory targeting the dry gas Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania. We estimate fully loaded cash break-even costs of around $2.25 per mcf in this region, which should support ongoing development activity even at currently depressed natural gas prices.
