I received a letter from a landman representing BOP interested in discussing a lease on my land (60 acres in Fairview township).

I was in a lease with Chevron until last year when they decided not to renew the lease.

Has anyone had a lease with Edgemarc or dealings with BOP?  Are the good to deal with and does anyone know what they are currently offering in the area for the per acre bonus and royalty?

Hi David,
We also received a notice from BOP. We have 35 acres in concord Twp. We were wondering if you were to find out any info regarding Edgemarc or BOP? The offer we received is 1750.00 per acre. and 14% with deduction.
Thank you
I did talk to the BOP landman. I received the same offer. He said Edgemarc is targeting specific properties and not wide spread buying as was done in the past. He said Edgemarc has 70 wells drilled in the area and the bonus and royalties offer is non-negotiable but they are flexable with addendums.

Haven't heard anything in Cherry

Since REXX went bankrupt they are selling all Butler County assets at that point another gas co. Should be involved. Maybe see activity then
We'll see what happens with Rex. I've been watching their website for updates.
Read Line "n" in the Edgemarc Lease, it says BOP employee's are allowed to lie to you all they want, as long as you believe it. Edgemarc don't have to honor anything they say if its not in the lease.

We met with them. Seem very inflexible. Only act in town. Amount one would receive as a royalty is really not known as the 14 percent is a "net" amount subject to post production costs. These costs are also non negotiable.

There is very little in a lease that is "non-negotiable".  That just means that they don't want to negotiate.  Post production costs are indeed negotiable.  You may not be able to eliminate them but you can get them capped.  It's often called "minimum royalty" and it puts a floor on the royalty you receive.  If your attorney doesn't understand both that and about half a dozen other ways to negotiate a lease then he/she is an amateur playing a professional's game and you need a different attorney.  

Well said Joe. I guess I should have stated they at present are not willing to negotiate. We are working to put a group together to act with a stronger voice.

After deductions you end up with very little money. It’s not worth it. These gas companies and thier deductions seem to be a scam. It’s just another way to take from you
Just spoke to the BOP landman. Edgemarc is putting acquiring new leases in Fairview Township on hold to allow them to have enough money on hand to bid on the REX holdings that are to be auctioned off soon.

I'm really curious who all is bidding on Rex's land
