According to Marcellus Drilling News, people in Jefferson County, OH are getting offers as high as $6000/acre and 20% for leases with Ascent and Gulfport.  These numbers are impressive and reminiscent of offers in the sweet spot during the boom.  Hopefully this is a good indicator of what's to come in the near future.  Thoughts?  Anyone who can confirm these numbers?

I agree with Dott. You will need an attorney to negotiate a good lease, and be careful of the attorney. I hear some are being paid off by the O& G companies.

I'm independent Landman who has a client/mineral owner who I negotiated for. I'm paid a % by the O&G leasing company, so it's in my best interest to lease for the highest amount of the mineral owner. If you have questions about leases or people buying contact me directly.

Has the amounts offered gone down drastically in Northern Jefferson county ohio?
