You make very valid points, however dont try to push your ideas on people. You dont know how "sorry" someone else would be if a compressor station were to be place on their property.
I for one embrace and enjoy the activity. I dont want to harm the environment any more than the next guy.
The way you present your assumptions makes you sound very close minded. Not everyone thinks the same way as you.
Again, good points. Just ease up on the negativity.
I work in the industry and I have an odd situation. My grandfather who is 92, owns 100 acres in Jefferson County. We are still working on a lease on the farm, but the quick answer to your question is not for a very long time. Companies are going to focus on what has a time table and what they will lose money on if they don't do something with the lease. Becasue Range doesn't have a time table is could be 20+ years before they even look at your property. I am sorry for the bad news, but it is the truth.
Some things that may help you: Your land is what's referred to in industry terms as "HBP", which means "held by production". Essentially, the old lease, as you've surmised, will control what's happening on your property. There are a lot of resources on the internet that explain the ins and outs of HBP acreage, but I will tell you that depending on the age and depth of your well, the picture may be more complicated that you initially assume. Secondly, I'm guessing by "contacted", you mean that there was an assignment of your marcellus and deep rights to Range Resources from Kriebel. If that is the case, the assignment will be recorded in Clearfield Courthouse at the Recorder of Deeds Office, I'd recommend looking at the electronic copy, attached to it will be an "Exhibit "A"" which will be a gigantic list of acreages, and yours will be listed. You'll want to check that list to see if 100% of your acreage was assigned at that depth, or only a portion. While it's rare, those assignments can make mistakes which can help or hurt you. Finally, I unfortunately don't have any information about the timeline for HBP acreage in Clearfield. I'm going to assume that the assignment is permanent and isn't restricted by a time limitation. Some people have chosen to hang onto HBP acreage, because eventually it will be tapped for Marcellus and deeper wells, however, I will tell you I've had a surprising number of clients involved in sales of their HBP oil and gas rights to companies which buy them. I'm not saying this is a smart or dumb move, explaining the benefits/detriments of that call is best left to you and your attorney, but it is another option to consider.
