What`s happening in Armstrong County? Who is drilling and what are the prospects for more activity? Anyone seeing plans developing along the Armstrong/Indiana county border for drilling? Any new pipelines or pads?
I know a company by the name of H&M Land and Mineral is buying in this area.
their website is
Matthew - How much are you looking to get?
Anyone know of any company buying mineral rights in the area?
Our lease (rewritten 2001 with several addendum's) forbids what happened to your neighbor. We learned more and more over the next couple years; but, were smart enough when the current lease-holder of a 1920's lease came to us asking to add the additional property we owned gas rights to that weren't under any leases to date and were adjoining the original tract. He wanted it to include in a new lease. No -- we won't be Kennywood. I'm more concerned regarding EQT -- I don't trust them since I've had experiences to this point with them. Deep drilling on adjoining properties worries me since our neighbors have heard from EQT and various other companies -- not us. . .
The property next to me ( rural valley ) has a shallow well lease. Consol bought them then assigned the deep rights to EQT. seems to be a horizontal severence to snyder and others. Seems to me that if you have a shollow lease they will turn your land into kennywood.
What I see around here is EQT (especially since the Gibson site) get stuff signed. See Landex.com, Armstrong Country subscribes to it and you can look things up; but, can't see them without a fee -- of course there's always the courthouse. EQT has been getting signatures for all kinds of things around us since the Gibson site establishment. The DEP also has a permit that's been approved that I can find on-line that doesn't list any information and that's really usual -- it just has a number and that worries me considering it's for EQT in our area and no well info. Maybe I'm being paranoid -- sort of like you say you say you keep watching. Maybe it's good we both continue doing what we do. We both want to keep on top of things.
Thanks again for the information
By making a few inquiries (and a few educated guesses), Ion will complete the testing and sell the results to any major energy company that wants to buy the results. I haven't followed EQT much since my property and adjacent properties are leased with Consol. Consol and other big companies are waiting for the results of the seismic testing before increasing Marcellus exporation drilling in our area. The testing will determine the location of faults so the gas drilling companies can best place future well pads. The testing will also determine what energy sources, and how much, is under ground (according to the Ion guys). The Consol CEO was recently in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette saying Consol will shift their efforts from coal to natural gas. He said that Consol will drill as many marcellus gas wells as possible and as quickly as possible in the western PA area. Consol currently has a pad in the Big Run area and one in Marchand along route 119. I anticipate they will continue in a SW direction toward Armstrong County. I believe we may begin to see real activity next year in 2014. There are pipeline infrastructure projects going on in many locations, probably to get the future gas to market. I'm being told marcellus drilling is coming to our area in a much bigger way, and soon. But as I watch natural gas prices continue to drop, I wonder if they will hold off until the price goes above $4 and stays there. Don't know but I keep watching and waiting.
We are in Brick Church.
Thanks Hunter for the email and phone number. May try it tomorrow; but, don't expect any results since we didn't agree to sign. Will try though.
We actually have a big chunk of property between roads that probably sort of messes up ION's mapping plans. (that's why I'm concerned about these 4 bores that are so very close to wells and water........ We were guaranteed no problems with the shallow wells and have had water problems since they were drilled. NO, no one helped and we are living with the problems.)
EQT Production is on-going in this area with Marcellus drilling. There's the Swank with 6 wells and another with 2 wells already drilled and of course the well site. (GIBSON) This site actually has a well through our gas rights (although-- no one has contacted us and our property CANNOT be combined with our current lease). 2 were drilled earlier in the past winter with another 4 (3 already approved by PA DEP.
Don't understand why ION needs testing here. Called some of our neighbors today that the bore holes are already located on -- no return calls yet.
Thanks Hunter for the information.
Hoping I can find an answer about what happens with the testing. It's to close for comfort with our water and the one shallow well that one of our better producing ones.
Is the ION testing for a well on Red Mill ? I heard one is supposed to be drilled there but everything has been quite for a long time.
