Just recorded today Linda. Still incomplete. 16 pages though when done.

Shell kept a lot of their leases in Mercer Co according to the Rex website map of the acquisition. The only township that Rex acquired was Liberty Township in far SE corner of the county.

Last week, I saw that some folks in Butler started to receive letters that their Shell lease were assigned to Rex Energy.  Has anyone in Mercer county received  a letter yet?  I haven't, so am curious, as  Shell bought my lease from Halcon this past year.  Have letters arrived to any Mercer county leasers? or did they decide to keep some of our area in Mercer?

Pulled the plot map for the Zigo 1H well. It will run north along side Rt 58 from the Frank Zigo farm past and under the Tennesse Gas station. Vertical depth 7,680 ft, total footage to be drilled is 18,306. Well bore path horizontal of 10,990 ft. Wells 7H and 11H should be permitted soon. 1H-6H are on the north pad and 7H-12H on the south pad.

Stevenson unit was laid out by halcon and earnest money paid to partys who own the property where the pad and access road was to be located ... 4 wells were to be drilled  in spring or summer of 2013....Long story short wells were not drilled for reasons only Halcon people in Texas know. They then bailed out and Swepi was handed the package to deal with.  Shell would rather drill off shore or in the tundra as the fish and raindeer are easier to deal with than some of the humans who don"t really know how things work in the real world.
