those leases were out of their interest area.
yes. look at the lower left corner of the attached map. that was their interest area.
no the lower left corner shows Guernsey county and Shell's priority A & B portions. that small rectangle that is hatched is my property in muskingum.
The landowner group that signed up people in Muskingum with Shell is now telling those people they will be paid so long as title clears.
Apparently "outside our interest area" is something you have to decided before you sign the lease, not after. Makes sense under most leases I have read!
they released the leases in the courthouse. LOOK IT UP. they would have to sign every single landowner all over again. They are not going to get paid! of course the head of the landowner group is going to say that; he's is the one that promised all the money that they will NOT receive anymore. Its bad business by shell- my neighbor got a letter with his release in the mail yesterday.
Is anyone else getting contacted by companies? Have not heard of anything for some time??
did you sign with swepi? did they release yours?
