Double check to see you are a member of CNY landowners Coalition. You should have been getting emails from them. With the amount of acreage you have and in the Bainbridge Township, you will be getting a super up-front bonus of probably $6,000 per acre or more. Our Coalition has about 30,000 prime acres in the 4 township location which makes it very desireable for the gas companies. If you haven't already signed up, to the website previously listed an do so...ASAP!
The source of the info is from our Steering Committee. They have not informed us where they got the information from. According to the president of our Coalition, our lawyers and lease are in "negotiations". Our leadership has been a little "tight lipped" and slow on giving the Coalition members information. I guess they feel "loose lips sink ships" since gas companies also read our website.
Do you still have land in Banibridge? If so, you should join our Coalition of 160,000+ acres. It's not too late.
Those four Townships in Chenango with the best gas possibilities (Bainbridge, Afton, Coventry and Guilford) is based on geology. The depth of the Marcellus and total % of carbons, etc. is very good compared with the rest of Chenango which is just O.K.
Hi Susan & family,
I was born in Huntington (1951) and lived there for 5 years and then moved with my family to Syosset. My grandfather began the Birchwood Nursing Home in 1946 after moving out from Brooklyn. My father began the Syosset Gospel Church in '57, I joined him as asst. pastor in '76 and have been here ever since.
My wife Dale and I purchased 99 acres in Guilford 5 years ago. We plan to retire there someday. We have a son (just married) and daughter with two children. Looks like you have a beautiful family...God bless you all!
Saw this on Twitter -- anyone have additional info?
September, 2009 found Fortuna striking a deal with the ''The Friendsville Group'' consisting of 600 landholders in Susquehanna and Bradford counties, Pennsylvania and the New York county of Broome. The company was to pay $5,500/acres on a five year lease with right to extend the lease for an additional three years. Royalties were to be 20% on production. The total deal amounted to $165 million for drilling rights to 30,000 acres in the three counties. C. Warren Trainor, a Philadelphia attorney, represented The Friendsville Group in the negotiation.
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. But beyond that, this site is made up of individuals who have worked hard for that little yard we call home. Or, that farm on which blood, sweat and tears have fallen.[ Read More ]
