Has anyone been picking up a free copy of Shale Play? It's a good publication, and may answer a lot of your questions.

This is definitely a "happening thing," and it isn't going to go away, and I do believe, Rowe, that Chesapeake is still in "play" — little pun!

Does anyone know if Chesapeake is still in Trumbull county? I'm in braceville township and have a lease with Chesapeake and someone came around with a contract for seismic testing. I was wondering if chesapeake was behind this or did they sell my lease.

So now that the news is out how Halcon was cherry picking and weaseled their way out of multiple leases of those involved in a land owners association over in Mercer County (of course, sounds like a bad negotiation by the Land Association compared to alov's which was all or none)....what does that mean for us that signed at the West Farmington meeting? I believe most of us left believing that as long as our land titles proved cleared, it was a done, are we waiting 6 full months just to hear they turn you down for no reason at all?

Is everyone pulling out their contract with SIF looking for the words "due Diligence" My contract doesn't even mention the words , it just says if they don't pay me within 180 days, this contract is null and void......I guess that means they don't even have to run a title search on my property if they already know they don't want it....which contraindicates their verbal sell "if nothing else ,you get a free title search out of this" (just speculation on my part).

SIF, they'll tell you they are "exclusive" reps for Halcon...OK! I Fell for that one. They've been pushing hard around northern Trumbull. For everyone else around Trumbull  that hasn't signed yet with SIF, do yourself a favor and wait and see just how Halcon is going to treat your local neighbors (or atleast get them to put a clause in if the land clears title they are obligated to proceed....yeah, right, like Halcon will sign that).

Speaking of neighbors, Hey Dave, You've been promoting SIF/Halcon so much around this area and on this site.....any words of wisdom....or truths anyways?

Both bp and shale investment fund are having people sign leases that the oil company can back out of. Anytime before the signing bonus is paid, the oil company can back out. These are bad leases. There are hundreds of people getting turned down in sept by both companies. 

We are committed to these leases forever. Thanks to the fine print, the oil company can back out any time they want. They make you wait 6 months for a signing bonus and if they dont want you, they turn you down at the last minute. Nothing fair about that. How many people are getting turned down on sept 17. waiting 6 months to be turned down sucks.   and the

What they heard about BP pulling out of Trumbull was a misunderstanding.  They are not taking any NEW leases in Trumbull County unless it is within one of their proposed drill site tracts.

They are still active in other counties, it is just that they have close to 100,000 acres in Trumbull County and they want to spread out and gain a position in other counties.

Hi Gina and all of my fellow shale owners,

Gina, you can tell when an O&G landman or Rep. is lying, when you see their lips move.

BP is paying on their leases aquired through ALOV, and the deal was all or none, remember. This means by accepting and paying on any ALOV leases signed they can only avoid paying everyone else from that group, and doing so on time, would be if the lessor in question has an incurable title defect. 

All others who sign up with them, or another outfit, would be subject to whatever you can negotiate, and payment would be according to your lease language.

I wish all the best of luck.

If you get more money or a better lease that is wonderfull. We all have to make our own choices and live with them.  

BP, i believe is hear to stay. The prices for holdouts will go up, and only if, the landowners demand more money and possibly better leases.
