The Gas Company Wants to Modify or Amend My Existing Gas Lease: What Should I Do?

          First and foremost, anytime a gas or pipeline company wants you to sign any contract you must thoroughly understand the document and any and all consequences that may result upon execution of the document.  Unfortunately, I have seen landowners lose hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars where they blindly executed serious legal documents without fully understanding their leverage and options.  It is important not to repeat these costly mistakes and make certain…

Energy In Depth's Mike Chadsey reports on a recent Road Usage Maintenance Agreement (RUMA) from PDC Energy:

"UPDATE III (4/19/13, 2:55 pm ET)

For over a year, Energy in Depth has updated our readers about RUMAs, which are agreements between a producer and a county that cover road repairs, upgrades and bonding.

Natural Gas Heat - The Ithaca Commons Thread

The Ithaca Commons, one of those struggling pedestrian mall projects from a couple of generations back, is undergoing an upgrade and part of the project is an expansion of natural gas service, right there in Planet Ithaca. Our readers will recall a series of posts we did called “There Ought To Be A Law.” We did a playful return to the era of that famous cartoon strip by the same name and noted how many natural gas opponents lived or worked in places that relied upon natural gas for heat. We…

Bloomberg Misses the Mark on Utica Development

Energy In Depth's Shawn debunks Bloomberg's claims about Ohio's Utica Shale:

"In its recent coverage of the Ohio shale industry, Bloomberg News suggested that the oil and gas industry is leaving Ohio in droves. It’s fitting that baseball season is underway, because the report was an unequivocal swing and miss.

The central problem with Bloomberg’s narrative is that…

Labor, Business, Government Agree on Ohio Shale

This week, Energy In Depth attended an event in Canton that would have seemed highly unlikely just one year ago.  Labor groups, oil and gas industry representatives, local elected officials from both parties, and multiple chambers of commerce all came together to talk about Utica Shale development, the Keystone XL, and why both are important to Ohioans.  The event was aptly titled, “Investing in America: Building Ohio Jobs,” and was hosted by the newly formed…

Renewables Advocates Missing An Opportunity

A continuing education program on natural gas development took place in Heritage Hills, N.Y., last night, and it was an opportunity lost for the promotion of renewable energy. The opposition to natural gas looks at a clean-burning fuel and sees only a threat to renewables, when in fact it should see tremendous potential.

Last night I took a drive over to Heritage Hills in Westchester County, N.Y., to make a presentation to a community association as part of a continuing education…
