It has been a while since anyone has posted here.  Looks like an update is in order.  

SWN has started picking up new leases and renewing expiring leases they bought back in the day from CHK.  We've been able to get $4000/acre and 18% gross from them.  Would be interested to see if anybody has been able to do better.

If the company is of any size they should be a corporation or "doing business as". Each State is different in which office oversees corporations but in WV the "Secretary of State" office has this info. You can search any corporations standing and date of incorporation and any event or change of status at the secretory of state website. If they are "doing business as" WV calls this a "True Name" or "Fictisios Name". The site is

You can find any complaints filled against them at the Attorney Generals Office but if they talk to 1000 people or more you shouldn't be alarmed by one or two complaints. Of course the advice of good legal council and tax council would be wise also. Good Luck

Any word on when the pipelines in Brooke county will go live and production will commence?

Comment by Todd on February 5, 2013 at 5:26pm

Mr. Allison,

Easiest and fastest way is to go to the Brooke County Courthouse in Wellsburg and make a copy of the "Declaration and Notice of Pooled Unit" aka the DPU.

The way I found out the names of the owners in a unit was by contacting DEP and actually getting the plat of the unit, mailed to me from the chief at DEP.

This plat states the names and how many acres are included plus the lines of all the boundries.

You can call James Martin at the WVDEP.
