"If you pay a lwayer out of the royalties you are looking at possibly paying about $100,000 for their service which takes them about 10 minutes because they have done this so many times and already have a contract negotiated. Pay your attorney hourly…"
"I was only trying to emphasis that fact that most of these little players that are in the area don't have the means to drill a horizontal well that will get max production. As much as I would love to have a verticle well that is at a depth of…"
"I find it interesting that you would say that these smaller companies are the ones to go with. You are speaking of having the royalties to be the most beneficial part of signing a lease. Many of these smaller outfits will drill a shallow well that…"
"Atlas might be drilling on the adjacent property but it is probably a verticle well since that is all they really look to drill down here. They are just tying up as much acreage as they can because they have a lot of leases that are about to expire.…"
You responded to a general question about a proposed severance limitation in Butler County that a landowner obtained in a lease offer. Is there a website or some other source that provides a general geologic strata map and estimated range of…"
"This depth severence seems to be pretty good. This will only allow the company to produce the Marcellus and it leaves you the option to both the shallow rights and the deeper rights. I am not real sure of the exact depths of these formations in…"
"Does anyone have any information in regards to a company leasing by the name of Coldwater? I was approached with an offer from them but I am a little skeptical because I have not heard much about them. I don't know who there operator is or if…"

"So we have seen prices in the Barnett get upto 25K so I totally see where we are going to get to 35K. There is absolutely no logic behind this statement at all. There is supposed to be 3 times as much gas here but it is my understanding that the…"
"I understand that the gas has been here for a billion years but I haven't been making anything off of it for that long. I know that it won't go anywhere unless I have someone develop it. I am waiting to see where the prices are going to go…"
"I take it you don't have any rights to your minerals because all you look at are potential problems that rarely occur. You need to stop reading all the slander of gas companies that rarely hold any truth to them. I think you should take the…"
"That is not how the royalty portion works. You will only receive royalties for the proportinant share of the property that is being developed. There is not going to be a company that will pay you royalties on acreage that is not being produced. You…"
You responded to a general question about a proposed severance limitation in Butler County that a landowner obtained in a lease offer. Is there a website or some other source that provides a general geologic strata map and estimated range of depths and thicknesses to various formations?
