I just wanted to let you know about an upcoming Seminar Series through the YPE called Energy Industry Training Series- It’s 12 part series, although you can just attend one or two if you like. The first Seminar is in June, and gives a complete overview of both the Marcellus and Utica plays.

You can learn more here!

RMZ Holdings is operated by Frederick Zeigler III. He runs commonwealth marketing group. Ring any bells?

Comment by David on January 30, 2012 at 10:16am

Whose all involved in RMZ Holdings?

Comment by Rich gazarik on January 30, 2012 at 10:08am

does anyone know why RMZ Holdings is buying up so much property around Ohiopyle state park? I'd be interested to know.

Terrylynn - a great one-stop shop is the Fayette County Marcellus Shale Task Force's website.  The link is www.mshaletaskforce.org

Click on the "Site Locations" tab at the top of the page and you should find what you are looking for.

Comment by Steven A. Walton on November 2, 2011 at 11:31am

In response to Terrylynn's comment, the answers are "Yes" and "a PA attorney." 

I would never advise any landowner (even an attorney) to go it alone.  There is an old saying "A lawyer that represents himself has a fool for a client."

The ideal situation is finding an attorney who will work in concert with the landowner.  The attorney understands the devils in the details of the O&G lease, and the landowner knows what he/she wants out of the deal.

Regardless of where most of the royalty holders reside, your property is in PA and the O&G lease you sign will be governed by PA law.

Comment by Terrylynn Lincoln on November 1, 2011 at 10:05pm

Is it necessary to have a mineral rights attorney?  We own the mineral rights to property in Fayette Co., but the majority of the royalty holders live in MI.

Should we seek a MI. attorney or a PA. attorney?
