"Quick question, did you sign a lease keeping the Post Production or did you have that taken out? Thanks"

Montage/Eclipse Taking 97% Deductions

Everybody who has a lease with Montage/Eclipse, be sure to check your July statement.  They took 97% in deductions from my property in Ohio this month.  You read that correctly: ninety-seven percent of my royalties were deducted.If this is happening to you, write it here.  If you are an attorney who is interested in making some cash from a class-action lawsuit, write it here.  See More

Dave in Ohio replied to Debra Bretz's discussion 'Antero????'
"The Market Enhancement clause essentially negates the gross royalty/deduction-free language, and the fact that Antero offers such language as if it is somehow a compromise should indicate how dishonest their practices are.  It is simply a…"

"If you happen to know a law firm that wants to put together a class action against them in Ohio, I would eagerly line up.  They have been taking enormous deductions from me for years.  The average for 2020 YTD is 60%, with the high being…"

"Antero is a horrible company.  I have worked with numerous operators, and these people are vultures.  For example, they took 83% deductions in my May statement.  I would negotiate hard and get the most rock solid lease you possibly…"

"It may be different here, definitely not an exaggeration though, happens all the time. Agree on it being a professional and ethical rule violation."

"Marcus/Dave -- Great points and great discussion.  Marcus - while it may be different in Texas, I believe that your generalization of landowners' attorneys underhandedly signing NDAs with operators is likely a gross exaggeration. …"

"Montage Resources, that took over Eclipse is doing the same thing.  They have been messing with the royalty owners for a while now.  From telling us lies, they started sending the checks very late. Blaming the change over, blaming the…"

"I don't think that Ohio is any different from any other State on deductions, it has been an industry trend, nationally, for a while now. Market enhancement clauses are worthless deductions, the produced product has to be matched to the…"
