My sister is in Salem Township and received a lease offer for $3,500/acre and 15% net royalty lease. Seems very low as I have heard of leases going for $7,500/acre or higher and 20% gross in Jefferson County. The wells in Jefferson County drilled in the past 2 years seem to be doing very well from what I have read and found online.

Anyone out there know of what the going rate in this area is? The property is within 1.5 miles of the Wayne Township line.

Thanks Inchworm,

I am completely surrounded by Accent. Have you ever been involved in a forced pooling hearing? If so, what can I expect? I currently have an attorney negotiating for me , but I will relay your previous advice. Sounds as if your knowledge in this area is from experience. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I was in your shoes once. I threatened being forcepooled. I did the math,and if drilled and in a producing unit,i would end up making more $$ "in the long run" than if I took the deal they were offering. BUT, it would take a year,or two before any $$ came my way after the well started making $$. Then they threatened back with the "we"ll go around you" possibility.


So how did it turn out? I don't think Accent has forced pooled in OH Yet, But I've been wrong once before. LOL

Family decision was to sign .same deal all the neighbors got.     Chesapeake.      turned out,they never drilled  us anyway. Maybe Encino will?
