(1) Adjusted Midstream Fee adjusts the gathering and compression fee paid by E&P by RICE s ownership in the midstream assets. For example, in the Marcellus, RICE owns a 50% interest in RMP which provides gathering and compression services to RICE and thus the single well returns analysis assumes the midstream fee is adjusted by 50%. In the Utica, RICE owns 100% of the RICE OH Midstream assets which provide gathering and compression services to RICE and the single well returns assume RICE does not pay a gathering and compression fee. (2) Full Midstream Fees assume E&P pays for the full gathering and compression fee regardless of RICE s ownership in the midstream assets. Note: Utica Wet economics assume RICE pays a gathering and compression fee consistent with the fee RICE pays RICE OH midstream. RICE is currently negotiating an agreement with a third party which may change single well economics. 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0%

32 Cautionary Statements 32 FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS This presentation and the oral statements made in connection therewith may contain forward looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of All statements, other than statements of historical fact, regarding Rice Energy s strategy, future operations, financial position, estimated revenues and income/losses, projected costs, prospects, plans and objectives of management are forward-looking statements. These statements often include the words could, believe, anticipate, intend, estimate, expect, project and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. These forward-looking statements are based on Rice Energy s current expectations and assumptions about future events and are based on currently available information as to the outcome and timing of future events. Rice Energy assumes no obligation to and does not intend to update any forward looking statements included herein. Rice Energy cautions you that these forward-looking statements are subject to all of the risks and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond their control, incident to the exploration for and development, production, gathering and sale of natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil. These risks include, but are not limited to, commodity price volatility, inflation, lack of availability of drilling and production equipment and services, environmental risks, drilling and other operating risks, regulatory changes, the uncertainty inherent in estimating natural gas reserves and in projecting future rates of production, cash flow and access to capital, the timing of development expenditures, and the other risks described under Risk Factors in Rice Energy s Form 10-K filed on March 21, 2014 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, Rice Energy s actual results and plans could differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. This presentation has been prepared by Rice Energy and includes market data and other statistical information from sources believed by Rice Energy to be reliable, including independent industry publications, government publications or other published independent sources. Some data are also based on Rice Energy s good faith estimates, which are derived from its review of internal sources as well as the independent sources described above. Although Rice Energy believes these sources are reliable, it has not independently verified the information and cannot guarantee its accuracy and completeness. NON-PROVEN OIL AND GAS RESERVES The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose proved reserves, which are reserve estimates that geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions and certain probable and possible reserves that meet the SEC s definition for such terms. We may use certain broader terms such as EUR (estimated ultimate recovery of resources), and we may use other descriptions of volumes of potentially recoverable hydrocarbon resources throughout this presentation that the SEC does not permit to be included in SEC filings. These broader classifications do not constitute reserves as defined by the SEC, and we do not attempt to distinguish these classifications from probable or possible reserves as defined by SEC guidelines. Our estimates of EURs have been prepared by our independent reserve engineers. These estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved, probable and possible reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of being actually realized, particularly in areas or zones where there has been limited or no drilling history. We include these estimates to demonstrate what we believe to be the potential for future drilling and production by the company. Actual locations drilled and quantities that may be ultimately recovered from our properties will differ substantially. In addition, we have made no commitment to drill all of the drilling locations which have been attributed to these quantities. Ultimate recoveries will be dependent upon numerous factors including actual encountered geological conditions, the impact of future oil and gas pricing, exploration and development costs, and our future drilling decisions and budgets based upon our future evaluation of risk, returns and the availability of capital and, in many areas, the outcome of negotiation of drilling arrangements with holders of adjacent or fractional interest leases. Estimates of resource potential and other figures may change significantly as development of our properties provide additional data and therefore actual quantities that may ultimately be recovered will likely differ from these estimates. Our forecast and expectations for future periods are dependent upon many assumptions, including estimates of production decline rates from existing wells, the undertaking and outcome of future drilling activity and activity that may be affected by significant commodity price declines or drilling cost increases. Certain of Rice Energy's wells are named after superheroes and monster trucks, some of which may be trademarked. Despite their size and strength, Rice Energy's wells are in no manner affiliated with such superheroes or monster trucks. Initial production rates are subject to decline over time and should not be regarded as reflective of sustained production levels. In particular, production from horizontal drilling in shale oil and natural gas resource plays and tight natural gas plays that are stimulated with extensive pressure fracturing are typically characterized by significant early declines in production rates.

33 Additional Disclosures 33 Determination of Identified Drilling Locations as of September 30, 2014 Net undeveloped locations are calculated by taking RICE s total net acreage and multiplying such amount by a risking factor which is then divided by RICE s expected well spacing. RICE then subtracts net producing wells to arrive at undeveloped net drilling locations Undeveloped Net Marcellus Locations: RICE assume these locations have 7,000 foot laterals and 750 foot spacing between wells which yields approximately 121 acre spacing. In the Marcellus, we applies a 20% risking factor to its net acreage to account for inefficient unitization and the risk associated with its inability to force pool in Pennsylvania. As of 9/30/14, RICE had 60,713 net acres in the Marcellus which results in 351 undeveloped net locations Undeveloped Net Western Greene County Locations: RICE assumes these locations have 7,000 foot laterals and 750 foot spacing between wells which yields approximately 121 acre spacing. In Western Greene County, RICE applies a 20% risking factor to its net acreage to account for inefficient unitization and the risk associated with its inability to force pool in Pennsylvania. As of 9/30/14, RICE had 21,913 net acres in Western Greene County which results in 139 undeveloped net locations Undeveloped Net Upper Devonian Locations: RICE assumes these locations have 7,000 foot laterals and 1,000 foot spacing between wells which yields approximately 161 acre spacing. In the Upper Devonian, we applies a 20% risking factor to its net acreage to account for inefficient unitization and the risk associated with its inability to force pool in Pennsylvania. As of 9/30/14, RICE had 55,000 net acres prospective for the Upper Devonian which results in 271 undeveloped net locations Undeveloped Net Utica Locations: RICE assumes these locations have 8,000 foot laterals and 750 foot spacing between wells which yields approximately 138 acre spacing. In the Utica, RICE applies a 10% risking factor to its net acreage to account for inefficient unitization. As of 9/30/14, RICE had 51,324 net acres prospective for the Utica in Ohio which results in 333 undeveloped net locations. This excludes ~2,500 net acres in Guernsey and Harrison Counties in Ohio Total undeveloped drilling locations dedicated to RMP & RICE are calculated by taking the total net RICE acreage dedicated to RMP in PA and to RICE in OH and multiplying such amount by a risking factor which is then divided by RICE s expected well spacing. RICE grosses this up by an assumed 90% WI, then subtracts gross producing wells to arrive at gross dedicated RICE operated drilling locations.
