  • 1. Company Overview January 2014
  • 2. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS This presentation contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this presentation that address activities, events or developments that Antero Resources Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company” or “Antero”) expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “intend,” “estimate,” “project,” “foresee,” “should,” “would,” “could,” or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. However, the absence of these words does not mean that the statements are not forward-looking. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forwardlooking statements contained in this presentation specifically include estimates of the Company’s reserves, expectations of plans, strategies, objectives and anticipated financial and operating results of the Company, including as to the Company’s drilling program, production, hedging activities, capital expenditure levels and other guidance included in this presentation. These statements are based on certain assumptions made by the Company based on management’s experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, anticipated future developments and other factors believed to be appropriate. Such statements are subject to a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, which may cause actual results to differ materially from those implied or expressed by the forward-looking statements. These include the factors discussed or referenced in the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333 – 189284) (the “Registration Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and in the Company’s subsequent filings with the SEC. The Company 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 our control, incident to the exploration for and development, production, gathering and sale of natural gas 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 and oil 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 the heading “Risk Factors” in the Registration Statement and in the Company’s subsequent filings with the SEC. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made and the Company undertakes no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. 1
  • 3. ANTERO: A “PURE PLAY” ON THE MARCELLUS / UTICA Critical Mass In Two World Class Shale Plays ● Marcellus is the largest gas field in the U.S., 2nd largest in the world – Industry production approximately 14 Bcf/d today ● Antero has 28 Tcfe of 3P reserves in Marcellus and Utica Shales ● 566 MMcfe/d of average net production in 3Q 2013 including 7,900 Bbl/d of liquids Market Leading Growth ● 159% Appalachian production CAGR since 2010 to YE 2013 ● Most active driller in Appalachia – 20 rigs running ● Most active driller in Marcellus Shale – 15 rigs running ● 3rd most active driller in the Utica Shale – 5 rigs running Industry Leading Capital Efficiency and Recycle Ratio ● Low development cost leader: $1.03/Mcfe(1) ● Industry leading growth-adjusted recycle ratio: 6.1x(1) ● Top quartile return on productive capital: 27% for 2013E Significant Emphasis on Takeaway and Liquids Processing ● 1.3 Bcf/d of processing capacity and 1.5 Bcf/d of gas takeaway by yearend 2014 ● Liquids expected to grow from 8% of third quarter 2013 production due to focus on liquids-rich development Liquidity and Hedge Position Support High Growth Story ● ~$1.8 billion pro forma available liquidity with current $1.5 billion bank commitment(2) ● 1.3 Tcfe hedged through 2019 at an average index price of $4.64/MMBtu and $96.54/Bbl Outstanding Management Team 1. Three year average through 2012; pro forma for Arkoma and Piceance divestitures. 2. See page 21 for the derivation of 9/30/2013 liquidity. ● Over 30 years as a team (over 20 years in unconventional) ● “Shale Pioneers” – early mover and driller of over 500 horizontal shale wells in the Barnett, Woodford, Marcellus and Utica Shales 2

Ethane rejection occurs when ethane is left in the wellhead gas stream as the gas is processed, rather than being separated out and sold as a liquid after fractionation. When ethane is left in the gas stream, the BTU content of the residue gas at the outlet of the processing plant is higher. Producers will elect to “reject” ethane when the price received for the higher BTU residue gas is greater than the price received for the ethane being sold as a liquid after fractionation. When ethane is recovered, the BTU content of the residue gas is lower, but a producer is then able to recover the value of the ethane sold as a separate NGL product. 28

  • 33. CAUTIONARY NOTE Regarding Hydrocarbon Quantities The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved, probable and possible reserve estimates (collectively, “3P”). Antero has provided internally generated estimates for proved, probable and possible reserves in this presentation in accordance with SEC guidelines and definitions. The estimates of proved, probable and possible reserves as of June 30, 2013 included in this presentation have been audited by Antero’s third-party engineers. Unless otherwise noted, reserve estimates are as of June 30, 2013, assuming ethane rejection and strip pricing. Actual quantities that may be ultimately recovered from Antero’s interests may differ substantially from the estimates in this presentation. Factors affecting ultimate recovery include the scope of Antero’s ongoing drilling program, which will be directly affected by commodity prices, the availability of capital, drilling and production costs, availability of drilling services and equipment, drilling results, lease expirations, transportation constraints, regulatory approvals and other factors; and actual drilling results, including geological and mechanical factors affecting recovery rates. In this presentation:  “3P reserves” refer to Antero’s estimated aggregate proved, probable and possible reserves as of June 30, 2013. The SEC prohibits companies from aggregating proved, probable and possible reserves in filings with the SEC due to the different levels of certainty associated with each reserve category.  “EUR,” or “Estimated Ultimate Recovery,” refers to Antero’s internal estimates of per well hydrocarbon quantities that may be potentially recovered from a hypothetical future well completed as a producer in the area. These quantities do not necessarily constitute or represent reserves within the meaning of the Society of Petroleum Engineer’s Petroleum Resource Management System or the SEC’s oil and natural gas disclosure rules.  “Highly-rich/condensate” refers to gas having a heat content between 1275 BTU and 1350 BTU in the Marcellus Shale and 1250 BTU and 1300 BTU in the Utica Shale.  “Highly-rich gas” refers to gas having a heat content between 1200 BTU and 1275 BTU in the Marcellus Shale and 1200 BTU and 1250 BTU in the Utica Shale.  “Rich gas” refers to gas having a heat content of between 1100 BTU to 1200 BTU.  “Dry gas” refers to gas containing insufficient quantities of hydrocarbons heavier than methane to allow their commercial extraction or to require their removal in order to render the gas suitable for fuel use. 32
