If you think that sitting getting my haircut next to the top land manager of Hilcorp  resulted in a whisper that leasing will start again for Mahoning, Trumbull and Ashtabula, you do not want to read this post.  If you think that the large landgroups are soon to announce a mystery energy company ready to lease, you don't want to read this post.  And if your questions are when will my land be leased, you definitely do not want to read this post.

If you are like many of us here on GMS, who read and educate yourselves on the dynamics and evolution of this play, you want to read this post and you will begin to understand when your land is ripe to be leased and how to deal correctly with the infrastructure issues concerning your land.

I have from the beginning in real time brought forth gleaned information as many have wrote on this site.  This information is now getting diluted with all the mess from landowners who are all about me,me, and me.  What once was well thought our information posted by many of us to navigater through these choppy waters of this play, now is littered with the rantings of impulse whining.

Let me simplify it for those of you who wake up every morning thinking the magic energy company wants you now!  If you navigate thru the clutter, or stop posting impulsive emotions, you will understand this play and how you are to benefit or not.


First of all, if you are in Columbus, Ohio, stay the hell off this board.  If you are in northern Ashtabula, zip up and wait your turn.  Many of us professionals in this land game are trying to offer for free, facts that when digested correctly will enable you to understand or make a decission like the rest of us.  We tried to post events and developments that tell you indrectly what is going on.  For instance, the Hilcorp Ohio River development and their pipelines upon completion, means they will begin cleaning up missing acreage close to this pipeline.  If you are in eastern Mahoning county right now, you are needed, not by a landgroup but by the energy company.  If you are up in Trumbull county, you have to now wait for the wells and the infrastructure and not a blanket leasing activity, those days are over with.  And Ashtabula, watch what is happening in western PA, with the wells and infrastructure. 


Folks, the only reason why we salivate about Carrol county and Gulfport, is that they were in line first in this wet gas development.  They have massive midstream developments that were first, after the energy companies leased enough to justify the wells.  Joining landgroups, if it makes you feel good, go for it.  The better leasing will go on as well units are put together in this play now.  What I see happening now is the majors want to establish their developments right now in the wet gas zone because they are in business to turn a profit.  Slower action will happen in the areas around the borders of where they are today.  As infrastructure is completed, they will expand.  For those of you that are close to wells, sit tight and update yourselves day by day, most likely, their six million dollar investment is a solid indicator that your nearby land is full of minerals.  For those of you who are further away from the action, suck it up and take it like a man that your time has not yet come.

You have to agree for those of us who have started here in the beginning, is that a lot of good info. is lost when some here post clutter.

Oh, BTW, I also have land in Ashtabula.

Hey Ron....

Are you saying or trying to imply that Wishgard was lying to me a while back about the gazillions of monthly royalty dollars within the next year and the extraordinary signing bous they were offering for Northern Ashtabula county.........



Wishgard never lies, Bill.  Right?
