Our core natural gas production and pipeline infrastructure focuses in southwestern Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, and eastern Ohio.  As of November 1, 2018, EQT's assets consisted of approximately one million net Marcellus acres, including approximately 680,000 core net acres in the Marcellus play.

As EQT’s customer-facing entity, the Commercial group manages the commodity sales, transportation, processing, and hedging of EQT’s produced natural gas. They work to place the Company’s produced commodities in the hands of end-users, particularly in areas where demand is on the rise, which facilitates opportunities for future growth over-the-long-term. The Commercial team adds value by providing transactional support that includes market outlook information, deal structuring, and risk management capabilities. This work also includes actively diversifying EQT’s end-use markets and transportation portfolio in order to optimize the Company’s physical assets to capture synergistic value through commodity purchases, transportation utilization, and end-use sales opportunities.

    I have been working at EQT Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard and put in the effort it takes the opportunity to move up through the organization is exponential. The benefits are excellent and employee support structure is in place whether you have personal issues or need extended family time. EQT is pay by performance, at any level you have the capability of earning much more than peers in the basin. Over the last 5 years we have improved making decisions based on data and the overall beaurocracy of a large company is not present. Ideas from the lowest level employee to upper management can be vetted and implemented quickly.

    Cons

    The recent changes and external distractions are getting tiresome.

    Advice to Management

    Get in front of the employees more often to talk about EQTs mission, vision, and values.
