I have been hearing that a lot of leased landowners in these areas have been receiving checks (from CHK) for leases that have not expired as well as owners that are signing new leases and renewing expired leases (with RRC)...please let us all know if you signed or are being asked about leasing...we all need to stay up on what is happening around us..as well as what they are offering and who is offering...something is happening slowly and quietly..please let us know what is happening around you...
Thing is Gary since the leases were bought RRC can simply re-up them under the same old lease without any changes. There is nothing a landowner can do from my understanding unless their lease doesn't allow a top lease after the expiration of the original lease. I'm pretty sure there are no or very few CHK leases that are not allowed to top lease.
Jeff and Gary both stated that RRC was buying their CHK lease. If that is not the case, then you are absolutely correct.
