Could be,but J Garrison seemed to be saying at the meeting that Eclipse had to pay the fee in person for the 2 year extension although some other entity. Anyway will be interesting to see what happens.

Comment by searcherone on January 26, 2015 at 11:16am

Jerry,  include Jackson Township in that also as Eclipse leased lots of acreage there;  and you forgot to add that the info was as of two or three weeks ago Eclipse was saying that would pay the 1000 dollars per acre;  BUT time tells all and if Eclipse is in need of money perhaps the lease will be sold to another company

Comment by jerry lee nichols on January 25, 2015 at 8:16pm

We may see a preview of wether current prices will affect leasing. Eclipse is coming up on a march date to either pay 1000 per acre for a 2 year extension or let go of leases in lee,ohio,green townships in Monroe county Oh.

XTO Energy, Summit Midstream sign Utica shale gas agreement

Summit Midstream Partners, LLC (Summit Investments) has reached an agreement with XTO Energy to develop and operate a new natural gas gathering system servicing XTO's natural gas production from Belmont and Monroe counties in southeastern Ohio.  The gathering system will be owned and developed by a new indirect subsidiary of Summit Investments, Summit Midstream Utica, LLC. XTO will serve as the anchor shipper and has dedicated approximately 29,000 acres to Summit Utica under a long-term, fee-based gathering agreement.  Summit Utica will gather, compress, and deliver natural gas produced by XTO into Regency Energy Partners LP's 2.1 Bcfd high-pressure Utica Ohio River Trunkline project, which is currently under construction, and other downstream delivery points.  Summit Utica will consist of over 115 miles of gathering pipeline with four natural gas compressor stations and will have an initial design capacity of approximately 500 MMcfd.

Landowners Leasing Group is currently forming landowners groups for the purpose of negotiating leases and mineral sales for Harrison, Belmont, Guernsey, Monroe, and Noble Counties. We have scheduled several informational meetings for landowners in these counties. Monday, October 21, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - the Salt Fork Lodge Ballroom in Lore City; Thursday, October 24, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - Undos Restaurant in St. Clairsville; and Monday, October 28, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - Swiss Hills Career Center in Woodsfield. For more information landowners can call (740) 815-5401 or log on to our website at

z, sorry if I assumed you were Zurz, if you are not.

Comment by z on April 4, 2013 at 11:05am

John is correct. The Hupp case was recently certified as a class action and includes all Beck leases in the State of Ohio that have not been drilled. If that applies to you you will be notified by the court at some time in the future of your rights in that case.
