Hi, I'm confused - Chesapeake leased my li'l 10 acres in 2010, and renewed the contract in 2015. When the lease runs out in 2020, does Chesapeake retain the mineral rights? We've had no action on our land itself, so no royalties at all, but now Gateway Royalties wants to give us a chunk of change to "sell" them any future royalties. Can anybody school me a bit?

Ray, If your ALOV lease is the same as mine the original 3 year extension was paid out at $750 per acre per year. Using that rate, a 6 month extension should pay $325 per acre or $7500 for 20 acres. I would counter offer $7500.

This may be a silly question, but has anyone seen a new map that delineates the Oil/Dry/Wet windows?  The key word being New.  Seems by now the data and information would be available to sharpen up the lines a bit.  But maybe with leasing still happening they remain tight lipped?

All this Is a result of the  two $8 Billion cracker plants Proposed  in the Ohio River Valley. The first plant is In the process of being constructed in an area close to Pittsburgh. The second plant is cited across the River in Ohio. These plants require natural gas liquids as feedstock, the most important Product being ethane which is used to produce plastic. Plastic production and molding will become the new manufacturing Boom in the area!

My lease is an ALOV, most likely the same as yours. I will be checking the Kramer pad for a rig on 4/15.  Seems like the oil/wet gas area is getting some play.

thanks for lease expires same day.wonder if drill bit will be in ground like lease you have alov lease too?

Comment by Peter Schueler on March 4, 2019 at 4:33pm

Ray, I'm not in that unit but my place on YMCA Road looks to be in a new three well permit by Chesapeake (Kramer permit) that's located off Norris Road. The pad is under construction. My lease and my neighbor's lease expire 4/15/19. Obviously they're scrambling to beat the deadline. The pad for these wells is in Franklin Township. The Kramer permits show up on the ODNR O&G Well viewer but the Akers permits aren't shown.
