Range Announces Marketing and Transportation Agreements

FORT WORTH, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- RANGE RESOURCES CORPORATION (NYSE: RRC) announced today that it has signed additional transportation and marketing agreements to support its future natural gas and ethane production growth.

Range has signed an agreement to act as a foundation shipper on the ET Rover pipeline, a natural gas pipeline project of ET Rover Pipeline, LLC, a subsidiary of Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP). The project will provide Range the flexibility to move Pennsylvania natural gas to Dawn, Ontario and south to the Gulf Coast. Range has agreed to transport up to 400,000 Mmbtu per day for 20 years starting in October 2017. The natural gas will be supplied directly from a regional processing plant so there will be no additional transportation charge to move this gas to these potentially premium markets.

Range has also signed its first two LNG supply agreements subject to commencement of the projects. The Company entered into an agreement with an affiliate of Cheniere Energy, Inc (NYSE: LNG) to supply gas to the Sabine Pass LNG terminal on the Gulf Coast. The Sabine Pass facility is expected to commence service in late 2015. Range is expected to supply gas to the facility for five years starting in 2017. Range also signed an agreement with another company to supply natural gas to another LNG terminal for a term of ten years. Further, Range is in active discussions with several major international companies to supply natural gas to other LNG facilities. The Company has existing firm capacity agreements to supply gas to these LNG customers.

Range has also executed two additional fixed term ethane sales agreements that are subject to successful project completion. The first contract will potentially supply an affiliate of Sasol Ltd. (NYSE: SSL) with 10,000 barrels of ethane per day for a multi-year term. Range expects to utilize its ATEX transportation capacity to supply the contract. Sasol anticipates reaching final investment decision later this year on its proposed 1.5 million ton per annum ethane cracker and derivatives complex near Lake Charles, Louisiana. The second ethane agreement would supply ASCENT, the petrochemical complex planned by the Odebrecht Organization in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The ethane agreement commits Range to 5,000 barrels per day for a term of 15 years. The ASCENT ethane will be supplied directly from a regional processing plant, thus resulting in no additional transportation fee to Range. These two deals combined provide Range a revenue uplift as compared to leaving the ethane in the gas stream. The agreement with ASCENT/Odebrecht Organization confirms Range's commitment to the downstream economic development within the Appalachian region where Range is a leader in the growth of this region.

Commenting, Jeff Ventura, Range's President and CEO, said "Range's marketing team continues to expand our marketing capabilities for natural gas and ethane. The Rover pipeline provides Range flexibility in selling natural gas to high demand markets in Canada and the Gulf Coast, while the LNG and ethane supply agreements further diversify and strengthen our customer base with industry leading companies. Importantly, these various contracts support our plan to grow production by 20% to 25% for many years giving us base contracts in place with leading companies in key areas that allow for possible future expansion."
