Judges Comments

“This was a good move and gives them vast acreage in Appalachia; the acreage purchased is right next to their existing acreage, literally in their back yard. The midstream assets exchanged in this deal make it the winner for me, right in the sweet spot for them.”

“The entire entry points towards a very socially conscious company… recycling 80% of their ow back water and using pipelines to transport water saving 2000 truckloads per well. They have a solid CSR program in place through Marcellus Mania and the many other community engagement programs the have implemented.”
