Chesapeake energy  has proposed Drilling  units that run from the vicinity of the intersection of Thompson Road and Kilgore ridge road running to the south east for approximately 3 miles to the edge of State Route 151.  The well pad has been prepared. Approximate 250 landowners have signed leases, but one landowner  owning  approximately 30 acres has refused to sign a lease.  This  Owner is reportedly requesting a $7500 per acre signing bonus  and other lease clauses unacceptable to Chesapeake.  A reliable source has reported the Chesapeake is preparing an application for force pulling from the Ohio DNR.  Attorneys who are familiar with this process tell me that it is unlikely that the application will be decided on in the remaining six months before approximately 100 leases expire. The Issue then becomes whether Encino  will  attempt to release the properties with expired leases. LET’S hope so!

Yes JT ODNR map is wrong according to Chesapeake. Will be three long legs with one short leg. Was there today, and was told they are setting casings. Also fourteen tanks sitting to the back of the pad. If everything goes as scheduled drilling should commence middle to end of January. Keep your fingers crossed.

You're correct.  The ODNR map is wrong.  Page 67 of the permit for 210H has a drawing.  The drilling unit for 10H and 210H is the same.   They've requested temporary minimum spacing to enable recovery of reserves that normally would not be produced.  I've highlighted the drawing from page 67:

The French fuel riots demonstrate what can happen when ordinary people are denied the basic necessities of life by “let them eat cake” elitists with agendas.

The French Revolution is hardly a thing to be admired,…
