“Goodfella's” Actor Is Reportedly Miffed By “The Electric City” Queries              

By   Robert A. Young

The Associated Press, AP, recently reported that 72 year old character actor and journeyman director Paul Sorvino, (who originally hails from Brooklyn, N.Y., and is known for portraying cops and mobsters of the underworld on the silver screen), garnered an advance for a half- million dollars of “Keystone State” taxpayer’s money to produce a film in the Scranton/Wilkes…

Getting close to signing in Lawrence Co.


Its getting close to signing time. We have been talking with Shell/Long (with some frustrations) since last summer and we are getting close to a deal (I think). We have property about 20 miles east of the Ohio line and right on the Mercer/Lawrence co. line about 3 miles from the Grove City Outlet malls. 

The big questions are.

1 - Are we wet or dry gas? So we know our negotiating clout. 

2 - Who else should we be talking…

tanglewood exploration not paying

I signed a marcellus lease with Tanglewood Exploration for my 127 acres in Greene County.  All was good until they put the well/frac pit on my property and will not pay me for it as the lease states.  The lease states:  If the well/frac pit are on any part of your property you get paid.  Tanglewood is saying that the site is only on 80% of my property and want to deduct 20% of the payment.  They won't even pay me for the trees they cut!  Needless to say, I would never sign a lease with this…

Butler County, Pa question?

Do the negotiations include access to the Utica Shale or only the Marcellus?  I noted that some are seeing the Utica as a separate opportunity from a leasing standpoint.  In addition the Utica could potentially contain more liquids and possibly some oil. Either would be higher in value than dry gas. Rex has apparently completed a successful Utica gas well near Muddy Creek in Butler County.
