There is still a lot of drilling activity here (southern Delmar/Shippen west of Wellsboro). There has been a constant stream of dump trucks and frac water trucks since last summer, all heading south on 660 toward the Canyon. Every time I go down that way I see two or three new wells, all ERM. Holding leases they already have, I suspect...I haven't heard of ANY new leasing going on around here.

My understanding of articles about Shell's 3rd-quarter report is that they are evaluating their Marcellus properties. There are two new sites along Rte 549 (Roseville vicinity) where they appear to be ready to drill and another where they're going to do five additional wells from an existing pad.

Seems like ERM is becoming more selective about where they lease/drill. Plus, the result of the TTLC sale did confirm that no other company was going to challenge them now for privately owned land in TC.

Hey, Buggs...if you are in the know, why don't you tell us what's going on? Why is leasing activity in Tioga Co. dead right now?

Just Jokin ya Buggs!

But he (crew chief for Long Consulting) didn't say the landmen would be here "forever". My take on it is that while the companies that do the leasing (Long, Elexco, etc.) do have a few "permanent" local landmen, they bring in temporary people to do sweeps like the one in TC. ("Local" for TC seems to be Olean, NY.)

The landman who last contacted me in mid-August was from the west coast and had previously worked Sullivan Co., PA. If the card a landman gives me has a yahoo, hotmail, etc. webmail address, I take that as a hint that he's transient.

Hey Buggs, How about you? You have some free time? I'm in prison doing time.

The "boss" for Shell/East landman, claimed to have 35 people in Tioga County last August ready to do business then they all went silent just before the failed Lease Sale.

The landmen that were working Tioga are probably working in another county. Most landmen spend a majority of their time travelling around to where ever the current work is......sometimes they are in the same place for years, other times, it could just be weeks.

They are probably like the real estate agents here. When I was buying my property, I could never contact my agent...he was always out hunting or cutting hay or something.

Wonder what 35 Shell/East Landman do for a living when they don't do leasing. I never looked at it as a part time job.
