I have a question for those of you who have signed a lease or any lawyers who might know the answer. The drilling and hydrofracking operation will produce 4 to 9 million gallons of polluted water each time the well is hydrofracked. While, in theory, this should not penetrate the aquifer, in practice, it will nearly be impossible to avoid some spills. Do any of the leases spell out who is liable if there is a major contamination event?

news article yesterday reported that fortuna increasing offers to $5500 and i think 15 or 20%. chesapeake also increasing to $5500 plus 20% royalty.

pa supreme court hears argument tomorrow in pittsburgh that may define what expenses may be deducted from the royalty.

Are you aware of the efforts that the Friendsville group have making to get the landowners of Susquehanna County a landowner friendly lease, and a good royalty and bonus amount? If not, go to their page:
and read about this. The gas company, Fortuna, is adding selected acreage, at their discretion, to be added to the membership's acreage, but you have to act soon. They require that you send an "Add-On Application" to them before 5:00 Wednesday to start the process to be considered. It is not binding, as far as I know, but it will give you time to review the lease before signing. The terms are $5500 per acre, 20% royalty, and 5 years. I highly recommend it, and have recommended it to many people in the Forest Lake area.

I have a small parcel of land (21) acres near forest lake in susquahana county. I recently received an offer of 3k per acre bonus, plus 15% royalties or 2.5k per acre bonus, plus 20%. Also, many pages of impossible to understand legaleze contracts. Anyone know who to talk to about this? Group for our county with already written contracts?

Absolutely amazed there are no maps showing the pipeline across my land at Quaker Lake. The line is suposedly dormant at present but easily visible from aerial maps running north across Penn Ave, Webb Rd and up along Vestal Hills CC.

Here's a map showing the Tennessee Gas Pipeline with associated wells nearby.

Hope it helps.,-75.923767&spn=0.425906,0.76973&t=h&z=11

does anyone know of a website that has a map of the gas line or proposed gas lines?
