Do the negotiations include access to the Utica Shale or only the Marcellus?  I noted that some are seeing the Utica as a separate opportunity from a leasing standpoint.  In addition the Utica could potentially contain more liquids and possibly some oil. Either would be higher in value than dry gas. Rex has apparently completed a successful Utica gas well near Muddy Creek in Butler County.

Cathy  Thanks...  Is the 18% on new leases or renewals?  Does it really matter if its a new or a renewal?  I am near the Seneca Valley School District and only have 18 acres and REXX is the gas company in this area.  I hear Northern Butler County is paying more money???  Thanks again.. Randy

google, Butler county Pa deeds ,open, go to deeds then simple search. type Phillps or Blx or Pc production, open large no deeds, find out where leases are in your area .This might help you to see where these companies are concentrating. We deserve better leases, It seems like all these Companies are Carpet baggers for Exxon!

Greetings everyone, I am new to this forum and am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I am desperately looking for resources and advice about leasing provisions that add extra protection for my well. I have not leased my property yet and am only interested in doing so if I can get an extra layer of protection for my property. Any assistance with this is very appreciated.

Just arrived a train of trucks to the property across the street.  This site has made me aware that there will be two wells drilled on my neighbor's property.  Seven (7) unmarked trucks with a few small trucks turned around and left since if they stayed they would have closed the road.  One truck is in one lane.  QUESTION: CAN THEY DRILL UNDER MY PROPERTY WITHOUT A LEASE?????   Patricia

If everyone really can't stand each other already, then a partition action might be in order so everyone is forced sell out or one or more people can buy the others out at FMV - which obviously is going to be significantly higher these days.

DISCLAIMER (i.e., CYA – I suppose CMA): Attorney-Client Privilege/Confidentiality is not established and does not apply to either questions or responses. Hence, do not disclose any confidential information (which would be really stupid anyway since thousands of people are reading this stuff). Responses are not to be taken as legal advice. Only one piece of legal advice is being given: HIRE YOUR OWN ATTORNEY TO HANDLE YOUR OWN SET OF FACTS AND DISTINCTIVE LEASE TERMS AND ISSUES! A brief recital of facts and issues in a discussion forum can NEVER convey all of the facts in each idiosyncratic case. Likewise, a brief response to those incomplete set of facts and issues in a discussion forum can NEVER convey a functional analysis of your unique situation, and, as such, cannot be relied upon by you as legal advice for your unique situation. Believe me, fact situations are about as similar as fingerprints. Moreover, all of my responses are talking about Pennsylvania law because that is where I am licensed. That means if you are from outside of Pennsylvania you can go ahead and throw everything I said right out the window (darn, I was trying to make it through this without resorting to a cliché . . . or a French word). Thus, while my responses might be free, they are not legal advice. Do not be so stupid as to try to save $1,000.00 whenever you have the opportunity to make $100,000.00. So take it from Warren Buffett – “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” If you do not pay the price you will really pay the price. I hope I avoided ticking you off, but hey, wasn’t that a great disclaimer!
