I have been doing a little research and speaking with friends and neighbors about forming a group to address the needs of those of us not yet represented by a landowners group.
This led me to call ALOV after hearing that they had accepted some acreage in Trumbull county.
I paid little attention to ALOV earlier as their website did not list Trumbull county as an area of interest, although the work they were doing was certainly of great interest to me.
From what i gather there was a cut-off of June 30 for sign-up with ALOV, they extended that and also had a meeting at RD banks Chevy in Champion. This may not be news to some of you, but i had not come across the posting until after. The word i got from an individual at ALOV was that Chesapeake set a northern geographical cut-off in Trumbull county of St.Rt.88, again this may not be a newsworthy flash to some. Many landowners attended, more than expected according again to a source at ALOV, and signed up their acreage.
Now heres the news, ALOV has agreed to start a "Waiting List" of still more interested parties from areas north of St.Rt.88. If you call them with name, address and phone number they will put you on the list, and depending on level of interest, they may choose to represent us as a group in a similiar fashion, with the same or even better terms to Chesapeake, or another interested party.
So call up ALOV, their number is listed on their site www.alov.us , and ask to be included in their next go around. From where i stand why re-invent the wheel, they already have done the groundwork and have the attention of the industry on favorable terms, lets ask them to either start another "Pool" to include us, or come work with us to the same end.
If you have information to share, please join in the discussion, Thanks
Hello again to all my fellow Utica Shale Owners. I Just stopped in to ask if there were any who signed with BP from the ALOV Northern Trumbull county group, that resulted from these efforts, still around.
Has anyone had any conversations/correspondence from BP concerning title defects, or other issues that would delay payment or affect your lease, or gotten a check for Bonus money?
Sorry I screwed the link up. here is the correct one.
I was contacted by one of the land companies getting the leases finalized for BP; it seems they were missing some of our paperwork. I verified who this person was through ALOV and a local attorney who has been involved in the leasing. I will turn in my paperwork on Monday, and hopefully get our check soon.
what does that mean Heritage???????????
anyone hear anything this week? Still waiting here in Farmdale, 43 acres 2nd signing.. 4 of my neighbors have received theirs, 3 first signing 1from the 2nd..
neighbor with 20 got his this past week. saw the van running down Haines rd Fri. Didn't bring mine tho. I signed the first day in the first group. I think my file went to the bottom of the box first. lol.
Any news today with anyone getting a check. Less than two weeks left now.
Congratulations!!!! Send it my way please.
If I could physically send it, I would. Since I can't, I will pray that it's on its way C Middleton. :-)
Hi Amanda, Very happy to hear about your good fortune, enjoy in good health!
To all the other landowners still waiting, keep faith, and remember that anyone not yet leased, you will have other opportunity, just hang in there.
Thank you, James! I'm very happy for you and your family as well.
Technically, it's not me who received the check, but my Mom. So, I'm just happy for her all around. She really needed it. There are many updates to her home that she needs. Many things we all take for granted until they broke or need replaced, etc. This is a nice helper for her.
