It means that an operator cannot drill a well in WV and then wait indefinitely to produce it. Hence, the surrounding old oil and gas leases have been surrendered.
So what you are saying is that Chesapeake is calling it quits in Hancock?
All that this means for sure is that Hancock is not in the immediate development plans for CHK. As everyone knows, CHK has too much acreage to develop; they just sold prime stacked pay acreage in Greene County, PA to Rice Energy, for instance. Also, they sold much of their Columbiana acreage to Hilcorp and other independent drillers are starting to hit that county. Western Hanover TWP, Beaver County is now CHK - but Range has been surveying well sites there!
Hancock is not in Access Midstream's maps, so, based on that and the forgoing, I would surmise that CHK is marketing Hancock.
Good information. Thanks, Todd. I guess we'll wait and see.

Here is an article that was sent to me...What's your take.  http://www.statejournal.com/story/26174438/wv-couple-claims-chesape...


Thanks for posting this interesting article. This is an important suit and basically affects everyone in Hancock County. It will be interesting to see if it gains traction. I'll keep an eye on it.


Thanks Todd..


Good news:
Deutsche Bank released the $500,000,000.00 Deed of Trust in Hancock County on 9-11-14.

I guess I will finally post on this one.  Chesapeake lost a court decision on this matter and was ordered by the federal court to plug this well.  The court found that the only reason they drilled this well was to keep from paying the royalty payments to those in the unit.  Chesapeake's intent was never produce from this well and it lay dormant for over 2 years!
