Range pioneered the Marcellus Shale play in 2004 with the successful drilling of a vertical well, the Renz #1. 

The Marcellus is now the largest natural gas field in the United States. With the benefit of a large, liquids-rich window in southwestern Pennsylvania, the Marcellus offers the best economics of any large-scale, repeatable play in the country.  A significant portion of Range's acreage also offers the benefit of natural gas potential from the Upper Devonian and Utica shale formations that lie above and below the Marcellus.  In 2014, Range will be directing over 87% of its capital budget toward development drilling in the region.  Clearly, Range expects the Marcellus division to be a value driver for Range for many years to come.
