i would like to add to this discussion that according to the kwgd (w***********) advertisement for the past cambridge meeting they represent landowners in noble, belmont, harrison, tuscarawas, columbiana, carroll and of course guernsey counties. they have a good website with the two attorney's bios (williams/vaughan) who are working with the landowner's groups, some articles that they've written and a link for other oil and gas information. there is another blog "meeting with kwdg" guernsey county going that contains some info. they consider the landowners in their group to be their clients...i think we're all realizing the importance of a good attorney to help us make some tough decisions
For sure this is an area where we all need someone who has the expertise. I do not. I also think we need to find a good G&O accountant (CPA).
I am not certain if KWGD is going to be holding any more open or public meetings in the area. They were hoping to have the group formed by August 1 & move forward with group member meetings by that point. If you are truly interested in this group, I would try to email the attorner Nathan Vaughan @ email@example.com or Machelle Mcburney, the paralegal that is assisting @ firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the two should be able to assist you if you are seriously wanting into the group.
