Just wondering if anybodycould answer a question.I have an old well that is in service 30 feet off of my property and was wanting gas for a new hunting cabin I'm gonna have built in spring.Would I have any right to the gas being so close to my property?
I have a well that is also a few feet from my property that was drilled in 1976. I share the royalties from the sale of the oil, but the original house is the only one that gets the free gas.
Neither one of us has houses,just used as hunting property.Thanks
Depends on your lease ad the leases of the landowners that make up the unit. Most likely the answer is no. Usually the only landowner that gets house gas or equivalent is the one with the well actually on their property. It is way of reimbursing the landowner for the use of their property.
We both bought our properties beside each other 4 years ago.That well was already there on his property.We are part of a pool for the utica shale though.
On his property = he gets free gas.
Not sure how it would work if both houses were on one property when the lease was signed and well drilled but later subdivided. Some farms have a couple of houses on them for family and sometimes one of them subdivided will be sold outside of family.
No houses on the properties but it was a farm that got divided up and sold.I just figured their was no doubt gas is being obtained off my property being so close.
I see.I thought I ran across something one day that mentioned something about 50 feet off a persons property.Person in charge of this well said he would give me gas really cheap if I want.I was going to build a nice hunting cabin and keep it all off the grid.I may check with a lawyer just to make sure first.Like i said no doubt the gas is coming from under my property also.
Not necessarily. The correct answer is "What does the lease say?".
Will have to check when I get home,I work on the river.
If the well is close to your property you could be getting royalties. Contact the company. I know my son gets a percentage from a well on his neighbors and another neighbor gets a percentage from the well on his property. He also gets free gas for his house. You could check with your neighbor as it might be in his lease.
