We just found out our land is being drilled under in Clinton District, Mon county, WV.
Chesapeake has drilled 3 wells on the same property and the first one has passed right under our land not far from the wellhead.
We found out by contacting the DEP rep who sent us the plats.
All along we have wondered about this because the land is not quite a mile from us.
We matched it all up and they are indeed below us.
So, now what do we do?
You are correct about CHK and encroachment, assuming JK can prove mineral ownership but the encroachment issue will mostly take care of itself IF mineral ownership can be established by JK.
The primary issue is now establishing WHO actually owns those mineral rights as Jim Shoos said. The encroachment issue is secondary and can't even be approached until true ownership is established.
I did call Sharon Flannary today.
SHE WORKS FOR CHK!
This saga continues folks..
We've had a title certification done..
It's all good.
Now for THE next step..
Send a copy to CHK... Jason Blose (attorney in house).
