16:21 EDTMHRMagnum Hunter midstream subsidiary experiences flash fire
Magnum Hunter Resources (MHR) announced that the company's midstream subsidiary, Eureka Hunter Pipeline, experienced a flash fire yesterday evening at a "pig receiving station" located in Tyler County, West Virginia. The initial reports indicate that the fire was fueled by natural gas liquids that ignited in tanks during pipeline pigging operations, but was limited to above ground facilities. The pipeline did not rupture and, according to initial inspection, was completely unaffected by the fire. The fire was extinguished by local responding fire department personnel. As a safety precaution, a portion of the Eureka Hunter pipeline system has been shut-in which has in turn affected approximately 2,170 BOEPD of production from wells owned and operated by Triad Hunter, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Magnum Hunter, in the region. These wells will be turned back to production upon finishing the safety inspection and receiving approval of the investigation authorities. Three people employed by third party contractors were injured as a result of the accident and taken to hospitals. The extent of all of their injuries is unknown at this time. The company has notified the proper authorities and is investigating the cause of the accident. Additional details will be released as they become available.

07:04 EDTMHRMagnum Hunter acquires Ormet Mineral Interest in OH, WV for $22.7M
Magnum Hunter announced that it closed on the purchase of approximately 1,700 net mineral acres located in Monroe County, Ohio and Wetzel County, West Virginia for approximately $22.7M from the Ormet Corporation, et al. This acquisition will increase the company's net revenue interest on its existing 875 acre oil and gas lease located on the related acreage from approximately 86% to nearly 100% in the Marcellus Shale formation only. Under the same agreement, the company has also acquired an approximate 100% net revenue interest in the balance of the mineral rights to this acreage which will also include the Utica Shale formation. The company has previously drilled three Marcellus Shale wells on the existing oil and gas lease which have been producing rich natural gas and condensate since May 6. This mineral interest acquisition adds to the company's large drilling inventory of potential Marcellus and Utica Shale wells in these two counties of West Virginia and Ohio. The company is already drilling the vertical section of the first dry gas Utica Shale well on the Ormet 15 Pad. This well is expected to have an approximate lateral length of 4,800 feet with an anticipated 20+ stages of fracture stimulation treatment. The current development plan includes a total of 4 gross Utica Shale wells to be drilled, completed, and producing on this property by year-end 2014. The Eureka Hunter gas gathering system is already constructed and available for throughput once these wells are completed.
