CNBC on Nat Gas Conversion

Posted on April 9, 2012 at 10:16am 2 Comments

All day today CNBC is focusing on converting vehicles to run on nat gas.  Rick Sentelli is in Oklahoma at a company that does nat gas conversions.  They are working on a pick up truck, showing what needs to be done to make it bi-fuel.  By the end of the day, they will be driving around in the converted truck to show what it can do.

During one segment already aired, they said that if you fill up at home, you will pay an equivalent of 66 cents per gallon. Thats right.....66 cents per…

There is much talk and hope that all this shale oil and gas will get the US freed of dependance on OPEC oil.  The Bakken, Eagle Ford, Utica and more have great oil potential. The Marcellus, Utica, Hainesville, Barnett and more have great gas potential, especially if we convert  major portion of our transportation to natgas. All of these should help us wean ourselves off of foreign oil and gas, which would fantastic for the country.

But one problem with that scenario is competitive…

Can you tell the experience you had with Northeast Applacian Land Service, they are here in beaver county, the group attorney doesn't have experience with them and is hesitant in dealing with them. He stated that it was a good lease but concerned they aren't reputable

We decided to go with CX but on the condition that we will get paid according to our survey acres and not our deeded acres.  Surveys(signed and stamped) are not recorded since we will have to pay higher property taxes.  The surveys were acceptable to ADAPT and Range Resources when they offered leases.

Parcel # 1 - Wayne Township, Crawford County.  35 deeded acres, 51 surveyed acres.

Parcel #2 - East Mead Township, Crawford County.  25 deeded acres, 45.85 surveyed acres.

Total acreage - 60 deeded acres, 96.85 acres.

If acceptable, please send us a contract to sign with your leasing company.

I did get the phone number from Ron - I will call later today to see what they have to say.  I don't like how CHK is using sign in 2 days or you won't get a lease- CHK can't forget it...I don't need a lease that bad that takes advantage of our property and doesn't protect it. Thanks for letting me know how you feel about Hilcorp- anything else you can think of that I should make sure is in their lease? Does yours say 20% no deductions?

At 11:59am on May 17, 2012, JDM said…

I am in Mahoning county, Beaver township. I am looking for a contact  to call a Hilcorp rep to see what they have to offer. I heard that its $5000 per acre and 20% but I don't if its a landowner friendly lease or not.

Will continue to read your posts. Am hopeful that things will go well and that I can lease my property in 2012. Don't want to inject politics but appears taxes will be going up considerably in 2013. Will probably be worse if Obama is re-elected which I am afraid is going to happen. You might look for article on Chesapeake. Appears that their CEO may be doing something questionale if not illegal.

I'm in Delaware Twp, and I signed in Oct., but then signed for the extension in Dec. Supposed to be paid by April 15th. My question is: I was under the impression that we would get some kind of services( tax planning, etc.)  for the $250.00 fee. I know they are having meetings with FNB this week, but unfortunately, Tuesday evenings are already filled up for me. Are they going to offer additional meetings or was it a one time thing?  If something goes wrong with the lease restrictions, would MOPAW represent this group or would we have to pay for their services again?
