Janice, my name is lester long and my wife and have land in Hampshire county wv. I have just learned that utica oil is under the marcellus shale and we want to drill for oil/gas. We live in san Antonio tx but I grew up on the farm years ago and I know for a fact the oil and gas is there. How do I get an oil company to drill or exray to see the place to drill. it was leased but they never did anything with it.
