You can contact Des by email at e*****************.
Do a search of this site on Des, he does not have a good reputation. Most knowledgeable people would advise you to stay away from him. Be glad he never returned your calls.
Thank you so much everyone. I am very sorry I have not been online to respond, I have been very busy with a career change and I have not been able to sign on till now. I will contact Eclipse ASAP and if anyone else has any ideas please let me know. BTW I never did hear back from Des Wertheimer.... :-(
Todd, I would recommend you contact Eclipse.
I also am in Green twp. not far from your property. However, I am wrapped up for now in the Beck Energy class action suit. I have been talking to everyone I know in Green twp. that is involved with the Beck case and trying to get everyone to stick together. You see, the case is affecting how the large O&G's are looking at us in Green twp. They cannot make much of a move on this area because they want it all, and a large percentage is involved with the class action suit. This suit should be decided this year, but who knows how it will come out, or if we will have much of a choice even if we win. I fear they will force us to sign with XTO at the same deal Beck Energy did. That was, $3500/acre with 18.75% royalty, which doesn't sound too bad, but if they give anything back to Beck it will cut into the landowners pockets.
Was that 18.75% gross, net or with market enhancement clause?
Todd, With the amount of gas under Monroe County I don't think anyone will be left out in the long run.
