"Salt Fork paid the neighbors in Short Creek 5500 and 18% for a 5 year lease. I get a bit wary anytime a company offers a 1 or 2 year lease. Usually means they have drilling plans in the near future."

Hi Josh, thanks for friending me...Id be happy to share what I know and what I hear. My attorney in this is Mary Keith, a local girl here who moved to Utah but comes here regularly on business. She has much experience with oil and gas and pipe line agreements... Her family owns many acres around here and have been dealing with these things for a number of years.......Lance

Hello Josh,

   I wanted to contact you to see if you could share some of the things you've learned from your contact with Mark West. Would it be better for me to call you on the phone or communicate this way. As I said in the discussion, I don't know whether I'm going to sign with them but it would be good to know what to watch out for & how much I should get if I did sign. Thanks. john mauersberger aka deutchen
