We already have our paper work ready to attend the final…

Guidence for the greenhorn

Hello, I am new here, and new to the oil and gas business. I wish I would have found this site a few years ago, here is my situation. I live in southeastern Geauga county about a mile from the Trumbull co line. There has been a lot of drilling activity in the area since about 2007, I had a lease with Wilkes Energy and they actually had a permit to drill in 2008 (permitted well site no. 21997 on the ODNR map) but never drilled a well. The lease was sold to Range Resources who I sign a two…

? regarding mineral rights already leased

Has anyone looked into forming groups for the landowners who already have their mineral rights leased - but under old contracts? 

In Harrison, Tuscarawas, and Guernsey counties, (and probably everywhere else), there are several companies holding mineral rights with working shallow wells that potentially don't have the equipment to reach Marcellus shale.  Immediately I think of Redhill (Dover, OH), Tipka Energy (New Phila, OH), and possibly Enervest (TX). Even if Redhill and Tipka can…

Surface Containment Solutions

Your answers to the following questions would be very helpful.

a. What discussions and/or papers are available addressing specifically drilling waste surface containment?

b. What… Continue

How can you ensure you are getting paid fairly for your wells production?

Hello folks, I thank you for your answers and help in advance on my hopefully intelligent questions regarding well royalty payments, versus well production and verificatin of both.


I live on the NW corner of Mahoning County, just south of the Mahoning/Trumbull county line near SR534 & I76. Cheaspeake, recently  (last fall 2010) drilled a series of wells, both the main vertical and several horizontal wells on my neighbors land. They are currently digging a line from the…

New York Follow Jersey's Lead: Business Buster Government

Business Busting Regulations

On July 1, 2011 New York environmental officials proposed a ban on drilling for natural gas with hydraulic fracturing in the New York City and Syracuse watersheds and on all state-owned lands while permitting it on private land only under "rigorous and effective controls" codified into state law.

The process of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracing," demonized by…

New Jersey Has Feeling's About Natural Gas: Rejects Factual Findings

New Jersey lawmakers from considering what would be the nation's first statewide ban on the natural gas drilling technique known as hydraulic fracing.  The state Assembly and Senate both have votes on the proposed ban scheduled for Wednesday. Gov. Chris Christie, who supports the use of natural gas for energy, has not said whether he would sign a law if it's passed.  Natural gas drilling has become an unfortunate contentious political and policy issue for states that put emotion over…

Natural Gas Extraction - a Good Government Paradox?

The natural gas “gold rush” has intensified debates around the world over how government regulates the oil and gas industry and protects the health and well being of its residents.

The debate pits those who see the industry as an engine for economic growth against those who fear that lax standards create a potential for natural disaster.

This Common…

It's Not About Up-Front Money

Dear All,

It's not the amount of money up front that you get, nor is it the royalty % that ought to rivet your attention. The real question is how much of whatever you get will you be able to keep? I just finished paying .43 cents on the dollar back to the government- that's a hefty bite out of the proceeds before any royalties have started to flow.

The expertise of knowledgeable accountants should have been sufficient. It was not. I have been getting all sorts of conflicting…

I am looking for comments, both in support of and in objection to, gas field wastewater disposal in PA. The PA DEP recently invoked a voluntary request for gas producers in PA to cease disposing their wastewater at disposal facilities in PA. What do you think? Please support you comments with facts. Thanks.
