In the second quarter of 2010, Williams will be taking over as operator for 2 of Rex’s 3 Marcellus project areas, according to Rex’s latest conference call.  The 2 areas they will take over, the Westmoreland project and the Central PA project, are both dry gas areas. The area that Rex will continue to operate, the Butler Project area, is a liquids rich area that they currently have 1 well completed, are awaiting frac for 2 drilled wells and are drilling 2 wells.  They plan to drill 10 more horizontal wells in the area in 2010 with 3,000 to 4,000 ft laterals.
