Just wanted to let people know that SWN has been taking leases and renewing expiring leases up in the panhandle.  I haven't seen a lease for Ohio County in particular, but we've done a couple in the last couple months in Brooke County, and gotten $4000/acre and 18% gross.  Ohio County should command the same.  Good luck!

I believe 100% would be extreme, however a royalty should be paid from date of production, even if someone else received the royalty.  Additionally, there is a good case for punitive damages, hopefully you copies of all your correspondences with CHK.

Lastly, a lease / modification should be written that is one of the best ever agreed to, as much as 25 - 33 percent royalty with ZERO deductions, based on Third Party Prices.

I am NOT an attorney, do not even pretend to be.  However, if you need recommendations for quality OGM attorneys, I work with many different lawyers to handle various aspects of my ownership rights.

Good Luck!

Chk did this but as everyone else now it owned by Southwest. I tried telling Chk years ago before they drill that well the people who lived there didn’t have the mineral right. I even sent them a copy of the deed which clearly states the coal and mineral rights had been reserved many years before they bought it. I even sent them a copy of the will that showed who had reserved the rights. I was told it was my responsibility to prove it. Luckily SWN legeal department found it now they want to try and get all the descendants to sign a lease ASAP. Put I’m not sure that a good idea until I can figure out whatwe can do. Could we ask for 100%of everything that been taken off this property?

I do not know all of the particulars in your situation, but you have astonishing grounds for a lawsuit.  Many attorneys would take your case on a contingency basis, eliminating the need to pay up front for the legal services.

If you would not mind sharing, what company are you referring to?

Good Luck

What could someone do if a oil and gas company has drilled through a property that was not legally leased. And you happen to be one of the descents to the minerals. This was all done in a effort to lock people into their old lease.

Statoil blamed Chesapeake, said they gave them the wrong decimal point.

Comment by kris miller on September 11, 2015 at 12:32pm
It wasn't just on kahles it was all of statoil
Comment by kris miller on September 11, 2015 at 12:31pm
Did they tell you that the accounting dept miscalculated the decimal point resulting in a overpayment ? It was your typical letter from a big corp blowing me off. I asked for proof and asked if they fired their accounting dept in May and still no response. I'm surprised ohio county hasn't come up with a non payment tax lol

Thanks for responding. Their accounting doesn't make any sense. They just pay when they feel like it.

Comment by Howard W Hatcher Jr on July 29, 2015 at 11:45am

Yes, I also sent an email requesting info about non- payment from statoil.

their reply was the same, we over payed you!!!!! They said probably 2 months but its 

already been that and no check. They said everyone in the Kahle pad was affected!!!!
