Rice Energy Lease Bonus Payments

Hi - Received an offer from Rice Energy which shows 1/2 bonus paid in 75 days and balance paid one-year from signing. Does anyone know if Rice Energy is normally agreeable to other bonus payment schedules that would better benefit the landowner (like maybe 1/2 in 75 days + 1/2 in 3 months)? Am worried they would not pay the second installment when it comes due. Any advice on this is welcomed!

Enervest / Hilcorp venture

Has anyone worked with Western Land services in ratifying existing Enervest leases with Hilcorp?
If they are ratifying the lease ,why aren't we entitled to a sign on bonus or the royalty rates that the new lessees are getting?

Holbrooke storage field

Signed a lease with a company in November of last year. We are the mineral/royalty owners. We were told that the landowners get the signing bonus and we get only royalties. The last thing we were told is that there is no time frame when we would get our royalties and that drilling is being held up by the Holbrooke storage field. They obviously knew this before they had us sign a lease because there has been litigation over the storage field since 2012. Anyone know what gives? We are ready to… Continue

Jet Fuel and Diesel in Ohio?

In May of 2011, I read the first article about some shale gas being more valuable due to its specific mineralogy. Most LNG’s are sent to a cracker plant to be processed into ethane and used for the vast myriad of plastic products that our society seem unable to do without. There has been much competition and speculation for several years now regarding building just such a facility here in Appalachia.

However, some apparently think the mineral content and DNA of our LNG’s may be…

Gray's Landing Mon River

Does anyone know what's in the works at Gray's Landing?  My guess it's something with natural gas, but that's only as guess.  Apparently no one in that area is being told until DEP approves permits???

Understanding the Basics of Ohio Geology

The Trenton Limestone:

The Trenton Limestone and accompanying Black River rocks are important in that they serve as the source for much or all hydrocarbon formation in the Appalachian basin. Generally speaking, the Trenton Limestone serves as a cap rock for the underlying Black River source rocks. Because it is not as thick here in Ohio, it has allowed hydrocarbons formed by the Black River group to migrate naturally into the Utica/Pt. Pleasant. To the East, in West Virginia…

E&P Companies Like Ohio for More than Just Geological Reasons

Drillers like Ohio for more than just geological reasons. Ohio is ideally located to take advantage of development and commercial networks in both the Midwest and on a national scale. Ohio is within 600 miles of 60% of the US population and more than half of the Canadian population. It has considerable existing infrastructure and one of the most favorable tax/business climates in America. Ohio has zero tax on inventory or corporate income, no tax on investments for inventory or equipment, no…

I have been following your online discussions and feel some work shops and seminars would really help the mineral owners understand our industry.  Understand how the current gas price affects the drilling activity, what the producer has to have to drill a 2 - 10 million dollar well. 

I teach oil & gas calculations but it isn't all about math.  My work is designed for the entry level analyst, but royalty owners in this area need to be brought up to speed on leasing, negotiating,…
