We are extremely pleased with the results from the Baird pad, and in particular, with the two Marcellus wells that averaged over 12.0 MMcfe/d.  In addition, the Baird 4H produced the highest condensate rates we’ve seen to date in the entire Butler Operated Area. The strong performance of the Baird wells, which are located in the northernmost part of Moraine East, demonstrates the future potential for the northern portion of the field,” said Tom Stabley, Rex Energy’s President and Chief Executive Officer. He continued, “The placement of the Baird pad into sales marks another success in the execution of our two-year plan. We remain on schedule to place the six-well Shields, four-well Mackrell and four-well Wilson pad into sales in the latter half of this year, which will be the catalyst for increased production growth in the second half of 2017.”
