You can go to the West Virginia Office of Oil and Gas Weekly Reports and look at the Permits list. That is arranged by county. When you find one for Monongalia County, you can see who the company is. The most recent week has a plugging permit for Monongalia. It is not as active as some counties but there are things happening.
Another place to look is the West Virginia Office of Oil and Gas Permits search
This allows you to search by county. There are several different stages that a proposed well has to go through between when the company is issued a permit and when the well starts producing gas and oil. Some of these need permits, so you will see multiple permits for the same well.
Maybe that helps.
Just looking quickly at this, it appears that Northeast Natural Resources seems to be the most active.
Thanks for the info. Do you know if there's a way for me to Market my minerals so that they can be leased? I have several tax tickets that I inherited. Some are in different counties
You could contact the companies that are active in your area.
My understanding is that EQT can be difficult to work with, and Chesapeake has a bad reputation for not treating lessors fairly.
You could search the Groups tab at the top of the page, and find your state (I guess all in WV) and the county (counties) involved, and read some of the discussions there.
North East Energy in Morgantown is very active.
I strongly suggest you get a good O&G attorney to advise you on everything you've got.
Then comes the leasing and bonus negotiations.
Very big deal.
If you've never done this before then you do not know how many ways there are to be taken advantage of.
I speak from direct experience(s).
Thanks for the information. I really appreciate it. Would you by chance have any contact info or person? Perhaps an email, text or phone number? Maybe an address?

Could you suggest a good O&G attorney?
I do and he is very good.
I will have to ask him and get back to you..
If he is not available then he knows another good one.
I wanted to also tell you that HG Energy out of Parkersburg may be leasing.
I can recommend two

I really appreciate all the good information. If anyone knows of any other companies in the morgantown area that are active or currently looking for a lease for oil and gas please put me in contact or if you have a company name that would be great.
