Sources: EQT starting to scout for a new headquarters office

EQT Corp. has begun to engage in some preliminary scouting for a new headquarters beyond EQT Plaza, where it is currently located, according to sources familiar with the search. As the natural gas drilling company currently works to sublease a portion of its current headquarters, sources familiar with the search indicate EQT has explored a mix of options in and around downtown, including at the redevelopment of the former Civic Arena site in the Lower Hill District.  The company, which has undergone significant change in the past two years, declined to comment beyond a short statement. EQT (NYSE: EQT) is bound to be heavily courted by developers all over the city, which is in a busy phase for new office development.
