Don't make my mistake...

I began getting offers for my land a few years back. I had spoken with friends of mine who had also received offers and decided to lease their property out well "the getting was good". I wanted to take a different approach. I wanted to hold out as long as possible (after all the price can only go up right?). 

To make a long story short, the well that was in my area turned out to be a fluke and my mineral rights are worthless now. I could have been a couple hundred grand richer, but I…

Hope for greater U.S. security through energy

By Keith Mauck

Today's headlines are fearsome. Yet amid the bad news, there is hope for greater U.S. security through energy.

Adherence to gas leases

We own a tract of land that has had a gas lease since the middle 70's.  It was renewed and had a Coal Bed Methane Lease added to the original along with modifications to the original gas lease in 2008.  We conducted an audit in 2014 that actually did not start until 2015.   Much to our surprise we found the lease had been totally mismanaged, and the terms of the lease were not being followed.  Things such as royalties were being paid to the wrong person,  Deductions were being taken that…

Shut-in royalty check - Stark County

I received a certified check this week from Chesapeake for shut-in royalty for the Ronald Smith 3H well.  The well was drilled a couple years ago but never fracked.  The Williams lease date is 4/13/2011, so it passed the initial 5 year term.  I'm…See More
