  I also received a letter from them. Did your letter tell you how long the lease was for? Mine did not.  Thanks,  Tom

We received a letter from Shale Investment Fund as well.  Got online and could not find much on them.  That is the 3rd and highest offer in 4 months, but have no plans on signing with them.

My personal ( yet uninformed opinion ) Is that the gas companies are waiting to see more from this area ( aka test well in Parkman ) and that will help determine the interest in Trumbull. seeing as how the Parkman area has been poked at we will see results from ALOV soon. Just my $0.02

Side note as my OCD is kicking in.

Can someone please teach ALOV how to spell Trumbull on their sight.....

I also got that letter, and I know of several others who recieved it too. We are all members of ALOV, and we plan on being patient. It's a complicated business and I trust ALOV also. I hope we get some good news soon.

Has anyone heard of a company called Shale Investment Fund leasing property in trumbull county? I received a letter from them offering $3000 an acre and 17% royalty. I don't know how long the lease is for it don't say. I will just wait for ALOV I trust them.

Gina, The best advice i know of is try to join a landowner group. I've been reading alot about this stuff and the best way to get the best lease is in a group. I know i have had alot of landman knocking at my door and they are like salesman and will tell you anything to get you to sign. Just be aware.

I live in near Toledo Ohio and own 5 acres of property along Rt 5 about 3 miles south of Kinsman. Might any of my Trumbull County friends share with me the latest area news?  I plan to drive to Warren next month to speak with an attorney about all this and would like an update, plus any important questions, insights or suggestions you may have.

 I'll post on the Trumbull Co boards what the attorney shares with me. Being informed and united is the best way to help each other.  And with that in mind, I thank you for all your posts!

Thanks for the feedback.  Do you have contact info for Buckeye?

I signed a lease with Wellington Resources, LLC in July, 2011.  My signing bonus was due last week, but has not been paid.  I was told that the cost  of gas was so low that they were unable to sell my lease, and that I would have to wait, otherwise, they would lose money if they paid me now.  The gentleman I spoke with was very open that it was within my rights to try and shop my lease on my own, but recommended against doing so.  Has anyone else in Trumbull County actually been paid a signing bonus?  Not sure what to do at this point.
