Chesapeake Energy Royalty Statement Decoded

*Oil, Gas and Natural Gas Liquids are sold well below market value to Affiliate (Chesapeake Energy) then a royalty is paid. The product is then sold on open market for a fair market price. An investigation will show that all royalty paying sales by CHK are by the same route, a bogus sale. The Royalty Statement admits to this activity which fits the definition of Theft By Deception per Ohio Revised Code.



*Natural Gas is used by Chesapeake free of charge as stated on Royalty statement.… Continue

Too Much Clay? Chill Out. Why Cryogenic Fracturing May Be the Answer

 

Almost without exception, today’s shale wells are stimulated using water-based fracturing fluids (slickwater).  This technique is popular due to its ability to transport proppant effectively at a relatively inexpensive cost.  However, it is a magnet for criticism from environmentalists, who are concerned about the incredible volume of water needed as well as the resulting contaminated wastewater which must be treated and disposed of properly.   Water use is often cited as one of the…

Rice Energy Lease Bonus Payments

Hi - Received an offer from Rice Energy which shows 1/2 bonus paid in 75 days and balance paid one-year from signing. Does anyone know if Rice Energy is normally agreeable to other bonus payment schedules that would better benefit the landowner (like maybe 1/2 in 75 days + 1/2 in 3 months)? Am worried they would not pay the second installment when it comes due. Any advice on this is welcomed!

Holbrooke storage field

Signed a lease with a company in November of last year. We are the mineral/royalty owners. We were told that the landowners get the signing bonus and we get only royalties. The last thing we were told is that there is no time frame when we would get our royalties and that drilling is being held up by the Holbrooke storage field. They obviously knew this before they had us sign a lease because there has been litigation over the storage field since 2012. Anyone know what gives? We are ready to… Continue

Shake and Bake: the advent of the resting period

Chesapeake released some quite interesting news during their first quarter 2012 conference call.  Apparently they discovered, entirely by accident, another factor impacting production numbers on their OH Utica completions.  When the Buell Well was drilled in Harrison County, a minor problem prohibited them from immediately completing it.  The unintended resting period allowed much of the water and frack fluid to dissipate prior to completion.  Their Carroll County wells, drilled…
