"Okay, bad wording on my part. You know.
The neglect I meant was really disinterest by gas companies who don't yet have seismic done in this area, and frankly can't be bothered with more "unproven" land when they still have a…"
Didn't die of "neglect"! More of disinterest by gas co's in leasing more land at that (and this) this time. And, as RFS said, because the parcels were widely scattered and not at all contingent.
I still have all the…"
"Even my group of adjoining acreage is having a hard sell right now. The companies we submitted to are interested but cannot take on our group just yet.
One problem that is surfacing is the blowback from all the lies circulating about Cabot in…"
"You are completely right about Wyoming County taking off. It will be a bit longer than we would like for various reasons, so we have to hang in there.
This is tough for older people and those of us who could really use money NOW rather than later.…"
"Thanks for the get-back. It's like pulling teeth to find out who has leased right there in my area in Forkston Township. Problem with just mineral rights, there is no land to deal with. The closest drilling is at Charmin-about 6 miles from our…"
"The biggest problem we ran into with the refugee group was that the lands were so far apart. At this point in time, it would be hard to sell a mix of small and large pieces all over the county (and out of it).
What I did in the meantime was to…"

"I'm not a local so it's makes dealing with this a bit difficult. The land has been in my wife's family for several generations. She keeps pushing me to get something going. I'm all for starting a new group. From the looks of it…"

"I don't know about everyone else but I'm tired of being patient. If there is a group to join I'm ready. If there isn't a group, lets form one.

"The refugees died of neglect.
Right now is still a tough sell for parts of the county. Things are on the burner even if you don't see anything happening, but for some it will be a longer wait.
You never know, the way this play has gone so far…"
Just wanted to touch base with you. Hope things are well and that this is a site where you can dive in and begin contributing. Please be sure to check out our county groups and see if there is a county you can participate in. Have fun "shaling."
What makes this site so great? Well, I think it's the fact that, quite frankly, we all have a lot at stake in this thing they call shale.
