I currently own property in Greene county. I own mineral rights on 447 acres. EQT has created a well site in the middle of my property rights. However, according to them, I only own 280 acres of 669 acres the well is to cover. Problem is, the original deed are in early American deed writing with boundaries starting at a white oak tree, going 30 purces to a rock, thence by property of ........., to a post etc. While I have a pretty good idea of the actual property line, I cannot find anywhere EQT's actual propert lines. I have names of 10 surface owners and their leases with a diagram but no reference to any physical, map of how their boundaries are laid out. Can anyone help me as to where to look, I have a copy of a proposed well plat location with names of owners properties but again, no actual boundaries for their leases? ? ?
Eqt should have surveyed the property in order to create the plat. Have you had a surveyor look at the documents.
Never got any info. No survey. If I had, it would have GPS coordinates and I wouldnt have much problem figuring out where every thing is. As it stands, I have no info to work from.
Tyler, I can give you the original deed for MY property, but have no information about EQT's except names of "pooled lease's" The original deed is from 1939 and was handed down from my great great grandfather to his wife after his death, then to their 7 children of which my mother's mother was one. It's in Morris Twp, Greene Co, Pa. ?
You can call the Chief of the DEP and he can send you the total well/unit map with names on it.
That's how I found out we are in a unit.
Did you lease all of your acreage with EQT??
Here's the problem. "pool": and I dont know how much EQT took.
Have your resolved your question about locating your oil and gas in Greene County?
Greene County has a Geographic Information System (GIS), however it is not available online. The government page for the Green County GIS insinuates that they have parcel boundaries mapped in their system, therefore, you might be able to buy a plat map from them, with collars featuring map coordinates in NAD 27 State Plane, or possibly in the Geographic Coordinate system you could use with a GPS to find your corners. While you are subject to metes and bounds, you still have parcel boundaries that are mapped by authorities who provide you with a tax bill. Generally, a GIS system used today in the US will have the means to cast coordinate values in a number of coordinate systems, but the State Plane Coordinate System is the one most often used because it is localized to a state's ground coverage. NAD 27 was usually built in meters instead of feet, but NAD 83 is in feet.
I have access to all types of information for mapping this sort of situation. Please feel free to check out my website at www.truemapping.com. Let me know if I can be of assistance to you and/or your neighbors.
Thanks Jessica. I checked out your site. Very nice.
I have the well location plat map EQT submitted to DEP as their proposed site but does not acurately show the physical location of the actual plat on a surface topo map. I have their well location plat showing the proposed KOP, then their proposed shaft and landing location, then location and total depth of end of the horizontal section, all with GPS coordinates. Nice but their plat map is "not" projected on an actual physical topo map of the area with coordinates. I google earthed these coordinates but then everything on my side is confused, as the property I own, is from a deed from 1939 when boundaries were written.... from a stone for 3 1/2 purses to a white oak tree, thence along the border of the throckmorton property to ..... another no longer existent post, or tree etc. I only have a rough ourline of the borders as described and hand drawn my one of my cousins who lives there. I do not have any surveyors accurate survey of the property? ? ? ? ?
Not sure where you can help, I have the general outline. I have created some coordinates of where the property should be and follows, but not an actual border.
Any proposals will be greatly accepted.
