Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation produced 2.8 million barrels (445,000 m³) of oil and 71 billion cubic feet (2 km³) of natural gas in 2003. The company has operations in three areas in the continental US, the Texas Louisiana Gulf coast region, the east coast (onshore) and the west in the Rocky mountain states. The CEO of Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation is Dan O. Dinges. The profit goes primarily to the major share holders with the rest being used for research and development and acquisition of new oil fields.
Cabot has major holdings in the Marcellus Shale gas play in northeastern Pennsylvania. The company has been cited for numerous violations in regard to spills of toxic hydro-fracking fluids in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Cabot is also active in the Marmaton Formation oil play in Oklahoma.
In January 2014, Cabot sought, and a judge granted, a temporary injunction barring anti-fracking activist Vera Scroggins from entering on any land in Pennsylvania owned or leased by Cabot. "In total, 312.5 sq miles are no-go areas for Scroggins under a sweeping court order granted by a local judge that bars her from any properties owned or leased by one of the biggest drillers in the Pennsylvania natural gas rush, Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation." It was noted by Cabot during court testimony that Scroggins had violated no laws and that this lawsuit was based on her being considered a "nuisance" due to her reporting and activism at Cabot sites.
