A map of the Brinker Storage Field is available through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC"). Columbia Gas had to provide a map that delineates the storage field's outline to FERC when it applied for its "Certificate of Necessity and Public Convenience," which document provides Columbia Gas with its eminent domain power for storage easements or storage leases. However,  getting a copy of the map is not as simple as searching FERC's elibrary or calling it's helpline. The map is considered privileged information, and one must complete and submit a formal request: Critical Energy Infrastructure Information ("CEII") or  Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"). Either can be filled out electronically here:


Also, keep in mind that most of the Binker leases either do not contain a unitization provision or the provision does not provide the lessee with enough acreage to effectively develop the Utica. Therefore, before Columbia and Hilcorp begin developing their Brinker leaseholds, they will need the landowner's consent. Please bind together and demand to be reasonably compensated.

I have not, but interesting dilemma. I am familiar with the Brinker formation

On what road is your property located? How many acres do you have?

Does your property have any previous lease restriction recorded in favor of a gas or transmission company who utilize the Brinker storage formation? It would seem logical that there would be some requirement to alert/compensate for utilizing that formation area; but such an agreement should not necessarily prevent one from leasing formations beneath it.

I will be interested to see your reply.
