Williams is leasing and drilling in Derry twp. They have 10 units , 7 units are drilled. Talk to Williams Landman the other day, he just finish the NMS Unit and the Frye (Roger Frye) unit.

There is a fee based web site that is used in the industry known as the PA IRIS site. (http://www.pairis.state.pa.us). You might be able to contact the USGS office in Pittsburgh at Washington Landing in the PADEP buildings and get them to assist you.

DM - check the PA DEP website. It's not the easiest to navigate, but the maps are on there.

dm i would like to help, but i am a retired construction worker who happens to be living right in the middle of about 8 of these horizonal wells. these wells are some of the first, if not the first wells drilled in westmoreland county. it was late 08 or early 09 when we signed for 200 an acre. once the drilling in this area stared leases were going for 10 to 15 times that per acre. i know of people who got 2500 an acre 2 months ago 1mile up the road. there are lots of gas companies that got into play in the area, you may want to call several of these companies , or a land agent, tell them you are interested in leasing your propety,they are all looking for acreage to lease, if it is in the marcellus fairway so to speak. good luck

Frank. . I would love to find out more info from you we have property there in westmoreland (east huntingdon) but are out of state and just trying to find out more about drilling permits etc etc.

carol, they have 2 rigs drilling on the slavek unit , my understanding is the large rig they set up above my place on the sharp curve,will shorten the drilling time, compared to the rigs that have been drilling in the area. i think this rig will be going to uschak's when completed with this well. william;s has taken over this areas drilling operations and existing wells , williams letter head has been on the last 2 royalty checks. got a surprise todays check had some sizable deductions, some type of surcharges or taxes passed on to the propety owner. one is marked fuel and the other is marked gth(gathering) i don't know if these are federal or state levies???? if anyone out their knows what these charges are let me know? as i said information i get is second hand either from local residents or well workers good luck

Frank - any idea what's taking them so long on the Slavek unit? I haven't heard anything for a while. Thought you might know.
Comment by frank on March 31, 2010 at 12:08pm
with 5 wells in the uschak unit, they will be tied up for a while, unless they put another rig into play.
