I am brand new to this website and this whole Marcellus drilling thing. I have a few questions. I am strictly a landowner and do not own the mineral rights. First do I find out who owns the mineral rights in order to find out if they have any intention of leasing to the drilling company. Question #2) How do I find out if gas companies have rec'd permits already to drill in my area. I'm hearing a lot of talk of drilling all around me (within 1/2 mile).

Also, this property we bought was supposed to convey free gas rights but EQT is telling us all of a sudden, gas rights no longer convey with the property. These gas rights have been conveying with this property since 1902. Any suggestions on how to prove that we should still get free gas? They are telling us to completely look for a new fuel source??? What's that about? I figured if they didn't continue with the free gas rights, they would just start billing us. It took 8 months to get this answer from them. I can only imagine how long it will take to fight this! Any input at all will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hello Everyone, I know that XTO is drilling in Four States and will be drilling in the PAW PAW, Lincoln and Mannington districts. XTO does not own Waco, they have made farmout deals with Waco to drill the deep rights! Also Cheaspeake has farmout alot of there leases in these areas to XTO. There is also a compression station in four states that is owned by XTO. XTO has also been running there own pipelines threw out Four states, Idamay, Farmington, Fairview and up to Mannington.

XTO last I heard is now having permit problems and is not doing anymore drilling in Marion county for the time being.

Thanks Todd, does Waco have systems in Marion County .   How does XTO move the gas ?

Comment by Todd Charles on January 24, 2012 at 10:57pm

Yes, Al Shields, XTO also owns "Waco" now - and they are drilling in Marion County.

To Julie who inquired about Halleck Road.

The 12.5% and $1000 per acre is what is being offered in the area. If you are familiar with the road running north from Mt. Nebo Church to North Ridge Estates, a permit has been applied for for drilling at that site. It's not far from Halleck Road via Creek Road.

A rumor about the drilling pad one mile from Mt Nebo Church:

The operation was shut down by some Fed. Agency.

Seems like I hear little other then rumors. Has anyone heard anything?

And the state of WV charges 2.5% tax on out of staters, that sell.
Comment by Todd Charles on December 21, 2010 at 7:32am

Karen, my husband passed away almost 5 years ago and I am still dealing with probate issues here in WV (could be some of the reasons the state is listed as 3rd on the "LITIGATION HELLHOLE LIST") I agree that you definitely want to resolve these issues without that if you can.  It sounds as if you've done some "shopping" and have improved your position from your earlier "offers".  When they get to the magic number for you, let it go and be content. All long distance relationships are stressful and difficult.

Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays and a prosperous Shale-ing New Year for us all.

Sincerely, Todd's mom, Kit

Most people use plastic products every day, but what they may not know is that natural gas plays a huge role in its manufacturing.

There is now another reason natural gas is so important in our everyday lives,…
