If your lease says its a gross lease no pre or post deductions can the gas co. still take deductions in the state of PA. I was told the state of PA. will let the gas co. take deductions even if the lease says its a gross lease ? Any one please response
You'd be good in West Virginia. I don't know the PA laws, though.
Regardless, you have to watch them closely because they'll take deductions even when they know they're not supposed to. It's a business decision. They'll make more money taking the deductions from everybody and paying out settlements for the few royalty owners that actually sue them.
