It appears that Belmont is becomming the hot county. Maybe the southern part of the county is oil rich? Heard that yesterday, but don't know if it is only a rumor. Big boys are certainly moving in.

I think the second article down is helpful in understanding the value of your mineral rights if you are still unleased Not a bad sight to exploe.

Fracking on hold Waiting for results of studies on impact of drilli...

I wonder how this will affect leasing activity in Ohio?

Big news this AM. Consol has entered into a JV with Hess Oil for half of their Ohio Utica Shale Play. Hess is paying $6,000 per acre for the prime acreage in the wet zone (Harrison,Jefferson,Belmont,Guernsey totaling 79,849 acres). Go to the website, click on Investor Relations tab, then click on Presentations to analysts. There is an excellent map of the play and Consols' acreage.

Here is a link to an article written by a prominent oil & gas attorney about lease clauses often found in leases offered  in the Utica and Marcellus Shale plays. Interesting reading and reinforces the fact that you MUST have a good landowner-friendly lease that you FULLY understand.

Here's an excellent short article regarding the value of NGLs (natural gas liquids). If your property is in the wet zone of the play it is much more valuable than if it is in the dry gas zone. If you're in the wet zone make sure your lease pays you for all hdrocarbons produced (Ethane, Propane, etc.).
