ALOV and Northern Trumbull County- Updated Discussion to include BP Lessor's and Bonus money Payment's

Hello all!

 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 , 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?

If you signed a lease you should be getting one.

Thank you

From the Good Friends and Families News letter from BP.

"The first payments were sent out on July 19,2012. This mailing of approximately 340 checks represents payment to 19% of Associated Landowners of the Ohio Valley lessors."

"The majority of the payments were sent FedEx."

"Future payments to lessors will be overnighted to by FedEx and will require a signature. All addresses containing a PO box will be sent thtrough USPS."

Who here is still waiting for checks that had signed in the first group?

Very first group & still waiting.

I am waiting and a few neighbors by me are waiting. I thought me, Debby Melvin and C Middleton were gonna shut out the lights when we left as everyone here but us had been paid.

Im in the second group that signed and still waiting.

I'm beginning to think the same thing, JT!  It's very frustrating but since I'm at the very tip of Trumbull ( the last big farm before Ashtabula co.) I thought maybe that's why it's taking so long.  Either that or they are saving the best for last!

We r a few miles into trumbull co (closer to geauga) & have yet to recieve bonus pymt. We signed w/ ALOV in the first group & literally were 3 rd from last to sign out of South Range school that night;) we are REALLY looking forward to getting these darn mailings of the bonus checks!! Come on BP!!! ;-)

5 acres in fowler twp.  Signed second day.  Still waiting......

Approx 18 acres in Fowler Twp. Signed 2nd day. Got the newsletter, but no check.

still waiting.  also haven't received the bp newsletter yet.
