I am in Liberty township and a few months ago got an offer to buy my royalties for 1500 to 1800 per acre, but they would do a more in-depth look if I was serious which "mite change the numbers" slightly....even tho I am not drilled or receiving any royalties ..talked to a landsman rite b4 I contacted them and he advised caution as there will be "significant" activity in my area in the "near future"....how about it, anybody else get an offer or hear anything or see any activity here in Tioga Co. ?
No, that deal involved several counties in western PA.
Not sure what is going on with Painter pad wells. Seems like there are one or two water trucks driving up or down Broughton Hollow road. Are they preparing to set up another drilling rig? Several months ago one of the pipeline workers told me that there would be a larger water line laid down sometime this summer. Have been occupied with health issues of my wife for most of the previous weeks.
To explain it in the fewest possible words, Lu Ann can no longer ever stub her toes! She is doing very well in recovering but we will know in about 6 months.
One thing that is not going in Westfield township is Montage is not honoring its commitment when it comes to sending out royaltys when they were promised! A phone call to them august 13 inquiring about delayed royalties by My wife Lu Ann brought this reply, "Montage is in the process of moving information to another site. Royalty checks for Westfield township, (Painter pad) were cut and mailed out about the tenth of August, 2019. Checks should be received by the end of the week at the latest!"
Today is Saturday and no royalty check has arrived. We have had inquiries from neighbors about these checks. Everyone is waiting for their royalty check.
Maybe we all, ( Flat Castle landowners), better start making phone calls to Montage demanding that they honor their commitments to the landowners. Every one has bills to pay! Some of us need this royalty to help carry their own commitments due to unforeseen circumstances..
Several of us are !
Well today is Monday the 19th of August. Will the royalty checks show up in the mail today? Our mail usually comes after 3 Pm. After we are sure the mail has been delivered and the royalty check is in our hands, or not, I Will make another posting here.
Well while I was typing this out, my wife was calling the post office to see if these checks had appeared yet. The answer she received was ("NO, we have not received anything from Montage. In fact you are the second caller inquiring about the royalty checks!")
Isn't it time for each one of the landowners that are due royalty checks to make daily phone calls to Montage demanding to know where their checks are!
Landowners will be less willing to even talk to Montage reps, or to believe their spiel, let alone to allow drilling on their properties.
My father always said, "The squeaky wheel always gets the grease!"
An hour ago Montage Rep called my wife and apologized for the delay. However she also said that an unforeseen problem with their new accounting system had delayed royalty payments.
She also said, "Tentively, checks would be sent out today" to be received by this coming Friday. If her words hold true, then the checks will be at least three weeks late!
I am hoping that at the end of next Friday, all of the folks expecting these royalty checks from Montage will indeed start their "royalty wheels squeaking every day" until their checks arrive!
