This press release is neither an offer to sell nor the
solicitation of an offer to buy the notes or any other securities.
 The notes will be offered in the United States only to
qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the
Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”).  The notes have
not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered
or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable

This press release contains
forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the
Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements include statements
that express a belief, expectation, or intention, as well as those
that are not statements of historical fact, and may include
projections and estimates concerning the timing and success of
specific projects and our future production, revenues, income and
capital spending.  Our forward-looking statements are
generally accompanied by words such as “estimate,” “project,”
“predict,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “potential,” “plan,”
“goal” or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events
or outcomes.  We caution you not to rely on them unduly.
 We have based these forward-looking statements on our current
expectations and assumptions about future events.  While our
management considers these expectations and assumptions to be
reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business,
economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies
and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many
of which are beyond our control.  These risks, contingencies
and uncertainties, which may not be exhaustive, relate to, among
other matters, the following: discovery, estimation, development
and replacement of oil and gas reserves; decreases in proved
reserves due to technical or economic factors; drilling of wells
and other planned exploitation activities; timing and amount of
future production of oil and gas; the volatility of oil and gas
prices; availability and terms of capital; operating costs such as
lease operating expenses, administrative costs and other expenses;
our future operating or financial results; amount, nature and
timing of capital expenditures, including future development costs;
cash flow and anticipated liquidity; availability of drilling and
production equipment; uncertainties related to drilling and
production operations in a new region; cost and access to natural
gas gathering, treatment and pipeline facilities; business strategy
and the availability of acquisition opportunities; and factors not
known to us at this time.  Any of these factors, or any
combination of these factors, could materially affect our future
financial condition or results of operations and the ultimate
accuracy of a forward-looking statement.  The forward-looking
statements are not guarantees of our future performance, and our
actual results and future developments may differ materially from
those projected in the forward-looking statements.  In
addition, any or all of our forward-looking statements included in
this release may turn out to be incorrect.  They can be
affected by inaccurate assumptions we might make or by known or
unknown risks and uncertainties, including those included in our
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.
 There can be no assurance that we will complete the Marcellus
