Does anyone know if gas companies are looking for old leases to 'top' at this time of lull in the Marcellus? A cheap time to get leases which are expiring maybe? Is it worth a landowner as my family trying to find a new gas company to offer a top lease? ?

I have 58 acres in Brady Township and they did our seismic testing back in Nov and I have no lease or anything from anyone as of yet.. Have had not offers at all in fact.

Sorry to say, but it could still be many years until you see royalties Carrie.  Seismic is the first step in this very long process.  I work in the industry and they could be drilling by Christmas or it could be 5 years.  Sorry.

I am just north of Treasure Lake in Sandy Township and I am leased with Carrizo.  The seismic company they used just approached me this weekend to work out things for testing.  I am hoping that means we are getting close to drilling here.

I started a new discussion yesterday, and it has not shown up. How long does it take? Is something wrong with the site?

My grandmother signed a gas lease in the 70's. For years there was one well. The property has now been passed down twice and the gas lease at least 4 times. 3 years ago the current lease holder, Dannic from Indiana, PA. drilled two more wells. These are not the Marcellus deep wells. Most of my family does not want drilling on the property. Can they drill a deep well with the 70's era lease? Who would of even imagined (not my Grandma) the size and scope of today's drilling practices? Is there anyone out there who has been able to terminate a lease without the gas company abandoning it? Are there other people saying no to the deep wells that leased years ago like my family did? No one currently lives on the wooded and hilly 125 acres in Brady Township, Clearfield Co. PA. but it has been in the family for 5 generations.

We are currently being asked to approve seismic testing. What is the scope of that. They told my cousin if we did not approve then we would not be able to prove any gas being drawn out from under us by nearby deep wells. Dannic has applied for a deep well at our neighbors. I do not know how far horizontal drilling practices go.

We are very concerned about water quality and availability. The east fork of the Mahoney runs through our property. We do not want anymore fracking on the property.

Can anyone out there explain our rights as property owners? At this time it appears they can do whatever they want, whenever they want and we have no say. I am feeling ripped off and taken advantage off. The money we get from the 3 wells is not even close to worth it!!!
