Yes. There is a pad under contruction on the Mike Evans farm which is on State Game Land Road about one mile away from me. PGS is getting ready to do sesmic testing in our area now. Myself and a neighbor signed a non-surface only lease with Alta. There is a 26 acre parcel between us and at the time the owner was not interested in signing any type of lease. We recently found out he signed a full lease. I am really concerned now that they may want to put a well on his property. It may just make sense for Alta. They have the well on Mike's and would go righ up to the SGL 140. Cabot also has the properties to our rear, so it would put Alta in a good position. We have not agreed to seismic testing yet. I want to speak to our Attorney again before we do anything.

Hey Bill, I see you are close to state game land 140, we have property on the 706 end of route 858, PGS has been on our property for the last two weeks doing seismic activity. I see you are signed with Alta, is there any word if Alta is doing any activity in the near future down that way? I believe the only well between you and I would be the one on Powers??? Have you heard of any others going in?

I am within walking distance of state game land 140 off 858, about 25 miles outside of Montrose. Also very close to the old Jackson Valley pottery if that rings a bell. PGS Rep just called again tonight. We may tell them "no" to the sesmic testing. I am not really concerned about the sesmic, but I am concerned they may put a well within a couple hundred yards of my back door. He said he would have someone from Alta contact me. Stay tuned...

PGS is a company subcontracted by at least ALTA. I have been recently contacted by them to perform seimic testing, but myself and one neighbor are a bit uncertain about it. Primarily because the property between us just signed a full lease after they stated they were not going to sign at all. (I should mention, we have a sub-surface lease only.) We are a bit concerned they now may want to put a well on our neighbor's property will the full lease. All three properties encompass a little over 100 acres and they already have a pad-site 1.2 miles away. If we do not let them test, I am wondering if this will discourage them a bit. I may be worrying about nothing, but I really do not want a well that close.

All you landowners that have been pushed by by Laser Midstream, we need to push back. Please go to this web site and file a formal compliant with the PUC. You do not need legal representation for this. You will get your day in court to express your concers and compliants regarding this company. We need to stand together and speak out regarding this company.

Laser Midstream has submitted a request to become a public entity, we must file these complaints ASAP.[/color]

Hi Mary and Ed - Sounds like they want to do some seismic testing. This is fairly common -- its a way to obtain information on the features of a specific formation. The holes are drilled, a small charge is dropped in the hole and exploded. Vibrations underground are collected as sound waves by instruments called geophones, which produce data than can be interpreted by geophysicsts. You may also hear it referred to as 3D. The practice is simiar to another seismic type study you may have heard of, or seen in action in your area, in which large trucks poduce the vibrations into the formation from the surface (thats 2D). Seismic technology and data helps drilling companies find the best places to locate wells, for the best potential resource return.

Putting dynamite in a hole on your property can sound a little concerning. These charges however, do not produce large damaging explosions. The drilled holes are filled after use. Like anything else, make sure there is a contract in place to do this, and have an attorney review it before you sign. If your land is already leased to a drilling company, however, and Conlin Williams is a contractor to that company, there very well may be a provision in that lease for this work. Take a look there. If not, and your properties are not leased yet, I'd do separate contracts for seismic and drilling activities.
