I have ten acres in Susquehanna county and the five year lease just expired. I received a signing bonus but never any royalties as no wells were drilled. Does this mean the area was deemed not worthwhile to drill and what should my next move be. Should I wait and see if I'm approached by another gas company or should I reach out to the former gas company?

Northeastern Shale Joint Venture


We are a Joint Venture Oil & Gas partnership whose partners possess extensive experience working and drilling in the Marcellus . We are seeking to work with landowner(s) or group of landowners that meet the following criteria;


1.  Landowners must NOT be under existing oil & gas leases.


2.  Must collectively or individually own 400 acres or more of contiguous land(s) in Tioga, Bradford or  Susquehanna County (west of interstate 81 only).


3.   Have a interest in having the land’s Natural Gas resources developed in a safe and expeditious manner.

Our operations are guided by the following policies:


We develop gas production only in a safe manner consistent with environmental preservation and post-drilling reclamation.


Unlike our competition we do not drill simply to hold leases. We will develop the unit(s) with only one goal in mind, attaining maximum production, safely and expeditiously.  


If the unit’s geology and location are strong, we offer the highest royalties in the industry.


Individuals or groups that meet these criteria and share these goals should respond by email to NSJV at  Your response must include all parcel numbers, corresponding acreage, owner’s names as well as contact information of the key landowner or proposed designated representative of the group .  Information provided will remain confidential pending our assessment of the acreage.  Replies will be made promptly by one of our key executives, not by agents or third parties. 


We look forward to hearing from you.

So much for spell check! I wrote royalties!! Not rosaries. All thought we may all need them if taxes keep stacking up : o

Anymore taxes and well have more unemployed. Oh and that will mean the government will get less revenue not more. And if the gas company can't hire quality people then production will slow down and less taxes will be paid because production is down then all this people who get rosaries will be paying less and spending less... Better vote for some one who understands this cause and effect.

Here is another list of tax and I bet there are more I have not thought of.

Natural Gas Facts

1 They create jobs and pay workers that pay income tax

2 They pay registration fees for vehicles

3 They pay a motor fuels tax

4 They pay for a permit to withdraw water from water sources

5 They pay gas well storm water permit for well pads

6 They pay a well bore permit

7 They pay a well permit for each well drilled from the main bore. Can be as many as 12

18 They pay a landowner lease

19 They pay a landowner royalty

20 They pay a Corporation tax

21 They pay a tax on profit to the state

22 They pay a tax on profit to the Fed Govt

23 The landowners pay state tax on royalties

24 The landowners pay Fed tax on royalty

25 They repair the roads they use. Something the state gets 44 cents a gallon for but spends on other than roads.

26 The natural gas buyer pays a tax

27 They pay for permits and right of way for pipelines to get gas to market.

28 Have I missed anything. Thats already 27 fees the natural gas industry pays

29 Now they want an extraction tax and impact fees these 2 would be 28 and 29 fees the industry and landowners pay.

Sandra. I would think you will pay tax in both states. My sister works and has income from NY. She lives in PA and pays both NY and PA tax. It would also be income in N J and taxable.

Comment by Sandra Jankowski on August 16, 2012 at 9:58am

If gas co. automatic withholds Pa. taxes from my royalty statement as the Gov. wants from natural gas for landowners living out of state will I also have to pay those taxes in the state of NJ where i live???

Does anyone know where the proposed compressor station is in Liberty Township?
Gas Compressor Stations Proposed in Susquehanna County

A natural gas drilling company wants to build four compressor stations in Susquehanna County.

A public meeting was held Thursday night to discuss the plan.

People gathered at Elk Lake High School in Springville to hear The presentation by Willams Partners, the company that wants to put up the stations.

The main topic of discussion at the meeting was air quality.

Williams Partners said they want to partner with the community on the issue.
“We know it’s important to be good neighbors. We want to be part of the community. Our employees live and work in the area,” said Helen Humpries.

The proposed stations would go up in Liberty Township, Middletown Township and Forest Lake Township in Susquehanna County.

Does anyone know what the different color ribbons stand for?  In addition to the pink ribbons, I have recently seen yellow & black striped ribbons on some properties in Silver Lake Twp.
