Company Presentation

February 27, 2020

Forward Looking Statements

All statements, except for statements of historical fact, made in this presentation regarding activities, events or developments the Company expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements are based on assumptions and estimates that management believes are reasonable based on currently available information; however, management's assumptions and Range's future performance are subject to a wide range of business risks and uncertainties and there is no assurance that these goals and projections can or will be met. Any number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Further information on risks and uncertainties is available in Range's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. Unless required by law, Range undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward- looking statements to reflect circumstances or events after the date they are made.

The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in filings made with the SEC, to disclose proved reserves, which are 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 as well as the option to disclose probable and possible reserves. Range has elected not to disclose its probable and possible reserves in its filings with the SEC. Range uses certain broader terms such as "resource potential," "unrisked resource potential," "unproved resource potential" or "upside" or other descriptions of volumes of resources potentially recoverable through additional drilling or recovery techniques that may include probable and possible reserves as defined by the SEC's guidelines. Range has not attempted to distinguish probable and possible reserves from these broader classifications. The SEC's rules prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC these broader classifications of reserves. 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 actually being realized. Unproved resource potential refers to Range's internal estimates of hydrocarbon quantities that may be potentially discovered through exploratory drilling or recovered with additional drilling or recovery techniques and have not been reviewed by independent engineers. Unproved resource potential does not constitute reserves within the meaning of the Society of Petroleum Engineer's Petroleum Resource Management System and does not include proved reserves. Area wide unproven resource potential has not been fully risked by Range's management. "EUR", or estimated ultimate recovery, refers to our management's estimates of hydrocarbon quantities that may be recovered from a well completed as a producer in the area. These quantities may 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. Actual quantities that may be recovered from Range's interests could differ substantially. Factors affecting ultimate recovery include the scope of Range's drilling program, which will be directly affected by the availability of capital, drilling and production costs, commodity prices, availability of drilling services and equipment, drilling results, lease expirations, transportation constraints, regulatory approvals, field spacing rules, recoveries of gas in place, length of horizontal laterals, actual drilling results, including geological and mechanical factors affecting recovery rates and other factors. Estimates of resource potential may change significantly as development of our resource plays provides additional data.

In addition, our production forecasts and expectations for future periods are dependent upon many assumptions, including estimates of production decline rates from existing wells and the undertaking and outcome of future drilling activity, which may be affected by significant commodity price declines or drilling cost increases. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, available from our website at www.rangeresources.comor by written request to 100 Throckmorton Street, Suite 1200, Fort Worth, Texas 76102. You can also obtain this Form 10-K on the SEC's website at www.sec.govor by calling the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330.

Free Cash Shallow Base

Decline

Low

Maintenance

Capital

Shallow Base Decline Driven by:

  • Core Marcellus position
  • 10+ years of drilling history in Marcellus provides solid base of low-decline wells
  • Infrastructure built to maximize returns, not peak initial rates
  • 2020 base decline rate of ~20% is sustainable, potentially improving as production flattens
  • Shallow base decline, coupled with efficient operations allows for low maintenance capital

Low Maintenance Capital Supports Sustainable Free Cash Flow

  • Minimum capital requirements to maintain existing production levels compared to peers
  • Generating free cash flow is priority in capital allocation process
  • Free cash flow is durable given Range's multi- decade core Marcellus inventory

12

Considerable Progress in Reducing Unit Costs

  • Cash G&A per mcfe declined ~13% in 2019 versus 2018, with continued improvement expected in 2020
  • Headcount reduced by ~18% in 2019 following asset sales and workforce assessment

(ZeroScenarioGrowth)

  • GP&T declined $0.12/mcfe from 4Q18 to 4Q19 through full utilization of existing infrastructure
  • GP&T expense expected to continue to improve even without production growth, driven by:
    • Expiration of legacy transportation and gathering contracts in non-core assets
    • Certain contracts in Southwest Appalachia structured such that Range's fees decline over time
    • Ability to let certain transportation contracts expire when up for renewal

Strong NGL Realizations Driven by Exports

Differentiated NGL Sales Arrangements

  • Range exports a larger portion of propane and butane than any U.S. independent
  • Diversified ethane sales agreements leave minimal exposure to Mont Belvieu pricing

Ability to Export Boosting Realizations

  • International price arb remains above historical averages
  • Range's differential to Mont Belvieu improved throughout 2019 with further price uplift expected in 2020

  • 23 Bcf/d of coal generation remains to be displaced, or ~25% of U.S. Power Generation Mix
  • 53 GW of coal plant capacity retired from
    2013-2018, and another 40 GW of plant retirements have already been announced for 2019-2025
    • More retirement announcements expected to occur in coming months/years
  • Planned nuclear retirements also remove large base-load of power generation
  • New gas-fired reciprocating engines being added to balance grid instability issues created by renewables

Natural Gas - Base Decline & Capital Discipline

Base Declines Offset Current Activity

  • Average U.S. decline rate of 26% equates to ~27 Bcf/d of new gas required each year to simply hold production flat
  • After drawing down DUCs, industry growth should slow meaningfully into 2H2020 and 2021 if strip prices hold

Producer Discipline Materially Impacts Supply Forecast

  • Industry spending being limited to cash flow in 2020 and beyond
  • Consensus 4Q-4Q growth forecast now just ~1% (0.2 Bcf/d) for Appalachia peer group, significantly improving gas macro for late 2020 and 2021
  • Minimal Appalachia growth expected at current strip pricing and <50 rigs
  • Private Equity-backed operators may shift to a free cash flow model as traditional exit strategies become challenged (IPO, corporate M&A, etc.)

Shale Efficiency Gains Are Slowing

Oil Basins

  • Limited Tier-1 runway left in Williston, Mid- Con, DJ Basin and Eagle Ford as cores are believed to have been heavily drilled
  • Up-spacingacross several plays reduces core inventory life
  • Efficiency gains from lateral length and proppant intensity now seeing diminishing returns versus three years ago
  • Parent-childissues becoming more prevalent as child wells produce materially less than parent wells

Haynesville

  • Well productivity in the Haynesville appears to have plateaued
  • Runway for current productivity may be limited given current pace of development in the play and that the core is known to be small
  • Private operators may be forced to reduce growth as traditional exit strategies have become challenged

Appalachia

  • Demand grows ~20 Bcf/d by 2025, driven by increased Mexico & LNG exports and power generation
  • Permian grows by ~1.5-2.0 Bcf/d per year with build out of new infrastructure, partially offset by declines in other shale oil basins in aggregate
  • Haynesville grows ~3 Bcf/d by 2025, partially offset by declines in conventional and offshore
  • Result is a call on Appalachia natural gas of an additional 13-14 Bcf/d to meet new demand
  • Higher prices will be needed for Appalachia supply growth to meet demand
    • Investor pressure for free cash flow limits public operator spending at current strip pricing
    • Capital markets not open for most producers to finance outspends
    • Lack of exit strategy pressures PE-back private operators to preserve liquidity / generate free cash
  • Early evidence?
    • Declining Appalachia rig count in response to prices
    • U.S. natural gas production has declined ~5% from 2019 high

NGL Macro Outlook

NGL Demand Growth

  • IEA forecasts LPG (propane and butane) and ethane to be the fastest growing global oil products over medium and long term
  • Indian LPG import terminal expansions under- construction/planned of 350 MBPD in 2020-25
  • In 2020, 5 PDH plants scheduled to start up in China with combined capacity of 115 MBPD propane demand
  • Relative economics support use of LPG over naphtha for international steam crackers

U.S. Export Bottleneck Relieved

  • 2020 export capacity to increase by ~450 MBPD and by ~260 MBPD in 2021 versus EIA gas plant LPG supply of 2,138 MBPD in November 2019
  • U.S. waterborne export capacity increases equivalent to over 30% of U.S. LPG supply, which should tighten balances going forward
  • Local Northeast propane differentials have narrowed since start up of Mariner East 2

  • U.S. LPG Export Capacity expands 710 MBL/D (~40%) by end 2021.
  • Global LPG demand grew ~4.3% 2014-19, and is forecast to grow ~3.1% 2019-23, driven by ~600 MBL/D of PDH and Ethylene plants under-construction or post-FID.
  • ResComm (~51% of demand in 2018) is driven by continued adoption rates in China, India, Indonesia and others for those without access to electricity.
  • Indian LPG import terminal expansions under-construction/planned of 350 MBL/D in 2020-2025
  • Relative economics support use of LPG over naphtha for international steam crackers. In an oversupply case, converting just 10% of the global naphtha ethylene cracking fleet would absorb a further 600 MBL/D of LPG.
  • Call on U.S. Supply is 715 MBL/D 2020-23, versus consultant supply growth forecasts of ~480 MLB/D.
