PITTSBURGH—Eclipse Resources Corp. (NYSE: ECR) has broken several laterals records in the Utica Shale, and President and CEO Ben Hulburt told DUG East attendees on June 20 that he expects to break more records for length.

Hulburt was joined by other upstream producers as well as midstream operators and industry experts who gathered at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh for the 10th annual DUG East conference and exhibition to discuss Marcellus and Utica activity, regional infrastructure and emerging regulatory issues in Appalachia.

“We believe we are the industry leader in onshore laterals,” said Hulburt, who spoke during an afternoon operator spotlight session. “Frankly, we’ve become quite good at it.”
