Aquifer Contamination-Part 2

Dear Shalers,

In Part 1 of the Aquifer Contamination discussion we explored the pro's & con's of the proposed drilling that is expected, and seemed to have come to several observations:

1) Drilling is good for the economy and produces jobs and revenue

2) Drilling techniques have been used for a long time, and the fracing process is non-hazardous

3) The drilling can cause contamination when proper procedures are not followed

The Baby In the Bathwater

We've heard about all of the dangers of hydro-fracturing (aka fracing), and doubtless environmental concerns deserve to be adequately addressed, yet its easy to lose sight of the big picture and to realize that the Marcellus shale and other similar shale gas developments in Louisiana and Texas change everything. …

Are Marcellus lease offers noted on spreadsheet private land owners only & how does tract size impact lease terms

The information provided on the new spreadsheet on is very helpful. I have three questions:

1. Are the leases with private land owners only or do they include any state government leases?

2. The spreadsheet does not specify the size of property leased. How does property size impact value of lease?

3. Are there property owners in Clearfiled county that are willing to share information with another land owner considering gas lease potential?
